Last week, all Meridian employees were required to participate in the first part of a two-day class called ‘Human Factors’. The objective of this course is to raise awareness of human error and to develop ways to prevent or reduce the occurrence and consequences of human error in aviation. The expansion of human factors awareness is the single most significant opportunity to make aviation both safer and more efficient. The course is taught by Global Jet Services (GJS), a leader in on-location training since 1992. GJS provides world class customer service while maintaining the highest degree of quality, flexibility, value, and safety.

Human Factors is a valuable course and it is highly recommended by the FAA and EASA. The course is also approved for Inspection Authorization (IA) and maintenance training. John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center, has this to say, “Safety begins at the maintenance level, but it is ultimately the responsibility of everyone in the company. This course shows how human performance can affect aviation operations. Human errors account for 80% of aviation incidents, and this course teaches how we are all responsible for safety, and how we can improve safety and efficiency by understanding how external variables affect personnel.”

The second part of the course will be taught on-site at Meridian in August 2013.

Meridian Jet Center Hosts Wiring Class

Teterboro, NJ – During the week of April 16-20, 2012, Meridian Jet Center hosted a 5-day class entitled “Practical Aircraft Wiring for Line Maintenance” at its facility at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. The class was taught by David Hyland of Global Jet Services, based near Hartford, CT.

Practical Aircraft Wiring is a hands-on course that is highly recommended for all A&P and Avionics Technicians. The course is built with the understanding that repairing wiring is often harder than installing it in a new aircraft, and inspecting wiring is a critical function for aircraft safety.

The material covered different types of electrical wires and cables, including: cutting, stripping, crimping, soldering, splicing, and fabrication, as well as installation particulars like segregation, tying, tiewrapping and chafing problems. Discussions included recent incidents, causes, and prevention with particular attention to inspection of existing wiring.

John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center, had this to say, “Global Jet Services is a leading provider in aviation maintenance training, and we are proud to partner with them, and to host this informative class at our location”.
