Meridian Jet Center is now performing additional in-depth work on G IV aircraft.

We have now completed ASC469 Water Line Ribbon Heater Upgrade.

This service change replaces all existing water line ribbon heater installations

above and below the floor with Adel Wiggins heaters.  All ribbon heater

installations below the floor will have new insulation installed.  The new

insulation and improved ribbon heaters are more durable and provide improved

reliability and resistance to freezing during extended and high altitude flights.

In most cases the galley is removed to gain access to the ribbon heaters.


Meridian Jet Center is also performing G IV Lower Wing Trailing Edge-

Zonal Inspection. 


If your Gulfstream will be needing this maintenance or any other inspection

work please contact John Langschultz at 201-288-3880 for a price quote.
