On Wednesday, September 24, Meridian Jet Center sent a foursome of golfers to represent the company at the 2014 Ed Furst Sr. Memorial Teterboro PAMA Annual Golf Outing at the beautiful Crystal Springs Golf Club in Hamburg, NJ. The golf outing traditionally follows the first Teterboro PAMA meeting of the season, which was held the previous evening at Graycliff Restaurant in Moonachie, NJ. The Meridian team was composed of John Langschultz (VP of Meridian Jet Center), Per Karlsson, (Director of Meridian Jet Center), Joe Langschultz (Parts Manager), and Chris Langschultz. While the foursome did not win the tournament, they did win the award for ‘Most Honest Team’, finishing the round with a robust score of 84. The winning team was AeroTek, with a final score of 59.
The annual golf outing hosted by the Teterboro Chapter of the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association provides educational opportunities to students attending the Teterboro School of Aeronautics in conjunction with FlightSafety. According to chapter President Ed Furst Jr., “The PAMA chapter has had a long-standing relationship with the school. Every student benefits from the latest donation by PAMA and FlightSafety. The chapter is leasing FlightSafety’s popular Principles of Troubleshooting training program for the school for a three-year period. Each year we would donate scholarship funds to one or two students – but our board members were looking for something that would benefit the whole student body.” John Langschultz says, “We are proud to participate in this event because it positively impacts all of the students. Since these young men and women are the future of our industry, we all benefit in the long run. It’s really a great cause.”
