Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport (TEB) in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce that Manion Aviation is now an officially authorized sales representative for Meridian Jet Center, providing MRO service sales for a wide variety of business aircraft makes and models.
Manion Aviation represents corporate jet owners and operators who are seeking the best MRO service solutions for their aircraft. The company’s leadership of Jeff Manion, Marty Owens, Bob Brega, and Bill Johnson has over 145 years of combined in-depth maintenance and modifications experience, having been employed by Bombardier, Dassault Falcon Jet, Duncan Aviation, StandardAero, Cessna, Gulfstream, American Airlines, and CAMP Systems.
Meridian Jet Center is an FAA-approved Part 145 certified repair station. It is also certified by European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Honeywell has appointed Meridian an authorized TFE731 and -36 Series APU Service Center. The facility is also a Northeast Honeywell Avionics and Mechanical Parts Depot. Meridian Jet Center technicians are certified to work on Beechjets, Challengers, Citations, Falcons, Gulfstreams, Hawkers and Learjets.
The fully-equipped maintenance hangar at Teterboro Airport has 40,000 sq. ft. under roof, with another hangar slated for construction in 2016. The company also features a well-stocked parts department, and operates a full-time detailing department.
Jeff Manion, company CEO, said the agreement is a great fit for his firm. “Meridian Jet Center provides high quality, factory-authorized service for many types of aircraft that we know quite well. With our extensive sales network and customer base, we will be able to provide the sales support that Meridian is seeking in order to help increase traffic of its aircraft services in both Teterboro and its future location at Hayward Executive Airport (HWD) in Hayward, California.
John Langschultz, VP of Meridian Jet Center, said, “Our aircraft maintenance facility and staff of technicians are among the best in the business, and we are conveniently located in one of the busiest markets in the world. However, our biggest challenge has been to get the word out to let people know that we are here. With Manion Aviation’s contacts of owners and corporate aircraft operators, effectively, we have a national sales force working for us now. It’s not only a win-win for both of our companies, but it’s also a benefit for our future customers who would not have known about us otherwise.”
Meridian Jet Center is a member of the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA) and was awarded the Teterboro PAMA Maintenance Department of the Year in 2012, and Maintenance Facility of the Year in 2013.
