Meridian Jet Center proudly received an award for Maintenance Facility of the Year at the monthly PAMA meeting held on Thursday, May 23, 2013, at The Graycliff in Moonachie, NJ. The award was presented by Ed Furst, Jr., Teterboro Chapter President. Robert ‘Bob’ Kennedy was on hand to receive the award on behalf of Meridian Jet Center, and the entire company. Meridian is a full-service, private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport (TEB) in Teterboro, NJ.

The Maintenance Facility of the Year award recognizes those aircraft maintenance facilities which have gone above and beyond in its support of the Teterboro PAMA Chapter and the Teterboro Aviation Community throughout the year. PAMA is a nonprofit society that represents all professionals in the field of aviation maintenance. The organization promotes professionalism and recognition for the Aviation Maintenance Technician. PAMA does this by fostering continuous improvement in aviation safety and community through communication, education, representation, and support.

Meridian is situated in PAMA’s ‘Eastern and New England Region’ and is part of the Teterboro (TEB) Chapter. The TEB Chapter gives Meridian, and many others, the chance to actively support and make advancements in the aircraft maintenance and management field. For example, one way that Meridian Jet Center supports the community is by hosting training courses throughout the year at its facility, often at no cost to the students. In 2012, Meridian Jet Center was honored to receive two PAMA awards; the Carl Krajewski Award and the Maintenance Department of the Year Award.

John Langschultz, VP Meridian Jet Center, commented, “At Meridian, we believe strongly in supporting this organization because of the way it gives back to the local aircraft maintenance community. The monthly meetings serve as a focal point for those in the industry to come together and share ideas, talk to students entering the field, and help job seekers find leads for employment. We are honored by this award, and look forward to many more successful years with PAMA.”
