SAN ANTONIO, TX and RONKONKOMA, NY--(Marketwire - Jan 22, 2013) -  ExcelAire today announced at the NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference that it was again named a Wyvern Wingman operator, a prestigious designation recognizing its commitment to private jet charter safety. ExcelAire, one of the nation's leading air charter and management firms, first qualified as a Wingman operator in 1999.
