Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce the addition of a Falcon 2000 (N411YF) to its growing West Coast fleet of private business jets. This large cabin aircraft, completed in 2001 and refurbished in 2014, seats up to ten passengers. It is based at San Jose International Airport in San Jose, CA, and it is immediately available for charter (Certificate IMJA053F).
The Falcon 2000 is a long range, twin-engine business jet that offers the perfect combination of luxury and efficiency. The aircraft has a range of up to 3,130 statute miles with a maximum cruise speed of 475 mph. It comes fully-equipped with all of the features and amenities expected from today’s discerning business traveler: leather club seating, a full galley with microwave and convection ovens, coffee maker and espresso machine, private lavatory with sink, and berthable seats that can accommodate three beds that could sleep up to four people.
The aircraft also features the latest technology, including complimentary domestic Wifi, two iPad Pro tablets, an inflight satellite phone system, large 18” bulkhead monitors with Airshow® 3D moving maps, individual viewing monitors, and a multimedia entertainment center that features a DVD/CD player.
Chris Battaglia, Director of Charter Sales, says, “This Falcon 2000 is a great addition to our Northern California fleet. It is our second aircraft based near Silicon Valley, but it’s our first heavy jet in the region. This means that we can now offer our customers more versatility for both domestic and international trips. As we continue to build our West Coast fleet, our focus will be to increase the range of options with late-model aircraft while always maintaining our high safety standards.

Falcon 2000 Goes Green
Meridian Air Charter’s Teterboro based Falcon 2000 recently went green with the addition of a set of API winglets. After the first flight with the new winglets Director of Operations Tim Burke remarked “The aircraft practically floated off the runway on takeoff and the climb improvement was quite noticeable. We got to our cruise altitude much quicker using less fuel than before.”
The winglets improve the aerodynamics and efficiency of the wing which in turn improves the fuel economy and climb performance. Although a considerable investment, the payoff in fuel savings is expected within a couple of years. A 7% reduction in fuel burn is expected along with a similar range increase. This will make the already fuel efficient Falcon 2000 even greener. The super mid-size Falcon 2000 has lower fuel burn than many smaller cabin aircraft with a significantly larger cabin. Any traveler sensitive to their carbon footprint will appreciate this aircraft. In addition to being a great coast to coast aircraft, its range and low charter rate makes it a cost effective option for travel to Europe. One quick stop is all it takes.
The installation was performed by Duncan Aviation in Lincoln, Nebraska under the watchful eye of Maintenance Director Robert Santangelo. “You can’t beat Duncan Aviation for their competitive pricing and impeccable workmanship” said Robert. This is the second winglet installation performed by Duncan for Meridian. In 2008, a Hawker 800A in the fleet added the winglets and benefited by a fuel savings of over 6%.
