Meridian Receives NBAA Commercial Business Flying Safety Award

Meridian Celebrates NBAA SAfe Flight Award
Several members of the Meridian Air Charter team display the 2018 NBAA Commercial Business Flying Safety Award.  (l to r): Robert Santangelo, Director of Maintenance; Bob Ferraro, Chief Pilot; Heather DeRegis, Flight Operations Manager; Kae Imura, Quality Assurance Inspector; Emil Iannone, Director of Operations; Lou Ramm, Director of Quality Assurance.

On Monday, July 16, Meridian Air Charter received the NBAA Commercial Business Flying Safety Award for 27 years of flight safety and 142,729 hours of accident-free flight. The National Business Aviation Association’s Commercial Business Flying Safety Award tracks years (from January 1 to December 31), and hours of flight time and is cross-referenced with the FAA. Meridian’s high safety standards have contributed to a stellar safety record for almost 30 years and is in good company with a short list of reputable companies that have managed to operate safely for over 25 years. The official rules and requirements for the award can be found at NBAA’s Flying Safety Awards page.
Meridian’s safety standard ranks among the highest in the industry. In addition to our own internal evaluation program, we also regularly undergo rigorous third-party audits conducted by the industry’s leading vendor and international industry auditing associations. Meridian is one of only 135 operators worldwide to hold the ARG/US Platinum rating, the highest level awarded. We are also IS-BAO Stage 2 Certified and IATA TCO Approved. We maintain the Wyvern Wingman Certification, which fewer than 100 operators currently hold worldwide.
Congratulations to the entire Meridian Air Charter team!
