On Wednesday, March 27, Meridian celebrated the storied and accomplished career of Joe Corrado, the Crew Chief and Base Manager of N601AD, a 1994 Bombardier Challenger 601. This aircraft has the distinct honor of being Meridian Air Charter’s most frequently chartered aircraft. Here are some of the record-breaking statistics:
- Aircraft Type: Challenger 601 (S/N 5186)
- Tenure with Meridian: March 2009 – March 2019
- Hours Flown: 6,375
- Flight Legs: 3,599

Joe started his career with Meridian in March 2009 and has played a major role in the upkeep and maintenance of this aircraft. His efforts and long hours allowed this Challenger 601 to fly for 6,375 hours, carrying 12,762 passengers for almost 3,000,000 miles! Meridian celebrated at a local restaurant and had a few parting gifts for Joe, including a plaque with the milestones, and a framed picture of the aircraft. We thank him for his many years of exceptional devotion and expertise and wish him well in his retirement.
