WYVERN Wingman Audit Protocol is #1 for alignment with international standards

Posted 2 April 2020 · Add Comment

Citadel Consulting, an aviation consulting firm, has completed a detailed analysis and comparison of four business aviation auditing protocols with the results of the analysis indicating that the WYVERN Wingman was most compliant audit protocol with the ICAO source documents.

 

 

The analysis compared the following protocols against ICAO Annex 6, Part 1, operation of aircraft, and ICAO Annex 19, safety management:

 

• Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF);

• Air Research Group / US (ARGUS);

• Intl Standard, Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO); and

• WYVERN Wingman

 

Of the 95 compliance items listed in ICAO Annex 6, Part 1, only the WYVERN Protocol addressed all the items. The IS-BAO Protocol addressed 91 items. The ACSF and ARGUS Protocols addressed 37 and 34 items respectfully. Additionally, the WYVERN Protocols were the only ones that aligned precisely with the elements of the Annex.

 

While all four protocols addressed the basic elements of the safety management system as outlined in ICAO Annex 19, only the WYVERN and IS-BAO protocols provided for detailed analysis of an organization’s SMS and focused on the behaviour of the organisation itself not what was merely present in the organization’s manual suite. Additionally, the WYVERN and IS-BAO protocols provided detail for evaluating safety data collection and safety data information sharing while the ACSF and ARGUS protocols did not.

 

The overall rankings from the analysis were:

 

#1: WYVERN

#2: IS-BAO

#3: ACSF

#4: ARGUS
