CharterX Acquires Wyvern Auditors
CharterX, a large online charter facilitator, has acquired air charter audit firm Wyvern Consulting of Palmyra, N.J. Through Portland, Ore.-based CharterX, charter operators and brokers can market aircraft and trips. CharterX founder and president Jim Betlyon said Wyvern will continue to perform “separate” and “unbiased” safety evaluations. He told AIN that non-Wyvern-recommended operators will not be excluded from the CharterX network. However, CharterX does notify customers whether or not an air-taxi operator is Wyvern-recommended.
