This year the 19th Annual West Coast Flight Safety Golf Tournament was held on Monday, April 17th at Braemar Country Club in Tarzana, CA. The tournament consisted of an 18 hole scramble with a shotgun tee off and almost 200 registered golfers. Beautiful 75 degree weather contributed to it being a great day on the golf course.

Meridian was a proud sponsor of the Driving Range. In addition, we also had a branded sponsorship table near the clubhouse where Mike Moore and MaKayla Hambek greeted golfers throughout the tournament. Giveaways included Gatorade, snacks, and sunscreen, as well as Meridian’s famous jet comparison guides. Greg Johnson played a competitive round in the tournament with industry colleagues.

A delicious dinner followed the event which included an award ceremony for various competitions held throughout the tournament. There were many contests, including closest to the pin, longest drive, and best overall score. Among the various prizes handed out, Greg Johnson won a G600 model aircraft and Meridian was awarded a sponsorship trophy for its ongoing support.

The East Coast Flight Safety Golf Tournament will be held on June 26, 2017 at the Centennial Golf Club in Carmel, NY. Meridian will be proudly sponsoring a hole at this event, and we will also be sending a foursome to play. We hope to see you there!

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company located in Teterboro, NJ (TEB) and Hayward, CA (HWD), proudly exhibited at its second NBAA Regional Forum this year. The Fort Worth Regional was held for the first time at American Aero FTW. The event drew 148 exhibitors, featured 27 aircraft on static display, and attracted more than 1,700 attendees.

Nora Jacob and Lindsay Berkel represented Meridian at the event. Nora is the Customer Service Supervisor at Meridian’s Teterboro Airport location, and her role is to help coordinate and manage the team of CSRs back at the FBO to make sure that we are providing exceptional customer service. Lindsay is one of our professional sales executives who is part of our Meridian Air Charter team. She reaches out to existing customers and prospects to provide competitive charter quotes, and assists our operations team in the trip planning process. Both have said that the forum was very productive and relevant.

“The regionals are great because it gives us a chance to meet our customers face-to-face in a professional environment”, say Nora. “We have many customers from this area who stop at Meridian when they fly into New York. It’s nice to see them in their local area.” Lindsay was also impressed, “I work with many retail and broker customers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, so this forum is a unique opportunity for us to catch up with them in person.”

The final NBAA Regional Forum of 2017 will be held on Thursday, September 7 at Morristown Airport (MMU) in Morristown, NJ. Meridian will also be participating at this one-day event with an exhibit and a team of representatives from every department within the company. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Meridian Jet Center Now Certified on Bombardier Globals

Global 5000

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company headquartered at Teterboro Airport, is pleased to announce that its FAA-approved repair station is now fully authorized to inspect and repair the Bombardier Global series of aircraft.

This authorization is a significant addition to the wide range of other business jets for which Meridian Jet Center has been certified, including models from Cessna, Dassault, Hawker, and Gulfstream. The Bombardier models added to Meridian’s operations specifications are the Global Express BD-700-1A10 and the Global 5000 BD-700-1A11. Operations specifications for all certified aircraft are available on the Maintenance page of the Meridian website.

John Langschultz, VP of Maintenance, was excited about the recent certification. “We now have the ability to perform inspections and repairs on the entire series of Global models, which is critical if you plan to serve the ultra-long range segment. As business jets continue to get larger, and the market for large cabin aircraft continues to grow, we must expand our service offerings in order to remain competitive and continue to serve our customers at a high level.”
