Meridian would like to extend its appreciation to the 8 line servicemen who volunteered to help relocate crates and boxes of new furniture and other items for Hangar 12 last Saturday. With the elevator not yet in service, deliveries for the second floor were left on the first floor, including filing cabinets, chairs, desks, and other office furniture. Due to the motivation and diligence of these employees, they were able to move all of the items, and were able to help us stay on target with the opening date in late April. We appreciate their extra efforts for going above and beyond!

PlaneSense and Its All-New Pilatus PC-24 Touchdown at Meridian Teterboro

Among those onboard the PC-24's maiden voyage was (l to r): George Antoniadis, President and CEO of PlaneSense, Dave Verani, VP of Sales and Marketing, and the plane’s two pilots, Jim Georgelis and TJ Schipano.

Among those onboard the PC-24’s maiden voyage were (l to r): George Antoniadis, President and CEO of PlaneSense, Dave Verani, VP of Sales and Marketing, and the plane’s two pilots, Jim Georgelis and TJ Schipano.

This week, Meridian was honored to host PlaneSense and its brand-new, swiss-crafted, Pilatus PC-24 Jet, the first of six that PlaneSense plans to add to its fleet over the next two years. The twin-engine, eight passenger jet touched down at Meridian Teterboro on the morning of March 14th as part of PlaneSense’s efforts to complete operational capabilities in airports that fractional share holders have expressed an interest in, or that are already serviced by the company’s fleet of PC-12 turboprops and Nextant 400XTi jets. Among those onboard were George Antoniadis, President and CEO of PlaneSense, Dave Verani, VP of Sales and Marketing, and the plane’s two pilots, Jim Georgelis and TJ Schipano.

The PC-24 is described by Pilatus as, “the only aircraft combining the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium-light jet, and the performance of a light jet”. Many in the industry believe that the jet doesn’t fit into existing categories, so they created a new one: Super Versatile Jet (SVJ). In addition to being “off-road” compatible, the jet has outstanding short-field performance, even on unpaved runways! This offers the aircraft a vast amount of mobility, over 20,000 runways to be exact. Passengers will now be able to fly closer to their final destination like never before with the use of smaller airports. Furthermore, they will be able to avoid tedious administrative procedures at larger airports and reduce their ground transfer times to a minimum.

Aside from the aircraft’s performance, the PC-24 features a unique interior designed for comfort and functionality. Pilatus ensures its passengers that only the finest-quality materials were used to create its interior. Soft-leathers and rare hardwood cabinetry are just some of the features you can expect to find within the exquisite aircraft. As if this wasn’t enough, the PC-24 has a generous amount of cabin space for a medium-light jet allowing exceptional headroom for its passengers and crew.

We would like to thank PlaneSense for choosing Meridian when bringing their fleet to Teterboro. PlaneSense is a leading national and international provider of fractional aircraft ownership and private flight. We value them as a customer and truly appreciate their business. We look forward to seeing this beautiful PC-24 more often at both our Teterboro and Hayward FBOs.

On March 15th, Meridian sent a team of associates to the Westchester Aircraft Maintenance Association’s (WAMA) Aviation Job Fair in Mount Kisco, NY. This event was established so that young professionals would have an opportunity to meet with aviation professionals and local businesses that are seeking qualified candidates. During the job fair, attendees were given the chance to meet directly with industry representatives to discuss career opportunities.

John Langschultz, VP of Meridian Jet Center, and Kelly Manzo, HR Coordinator, were very busy representing Meridian at the one-day event. Lou Ramm, Director of Quality Assurance, who was attending an aviation course in an adjacent room, stopped by the job fair to lend a hand. In addition to seeing many familiar faces within the industry, the Meridian team spoke with many ambitious candidates interested in various aviation positions, including pilot, flight attendant, dispatcher, customer service representative, and aircraft maintenance technician. Overall, the event was a huge success for both the attendees and recruiters. Special thanks to WAMA and all of the young professionals that took the time to speak with our representatives.
