Meridian is pleased to announce the addition of a Gulfstream G450 (N973MC) business jet to its ever-growing managed fleet. This aircraft is based in Teterboro, NJ, and conveniently serves its New York City-area customers. This long-range jet was manufactured in 2009 and is impeccably maintained both inside and out. The aircraft is now available for charter (Certificate IMJA053F).
The spacious cabin can accommodate up to 14 passengers and can fly a maximum distance of 4,350 nm/8,056 km at Mach 0.80 with eight passengers and three crew. This aircraft is well-appointed with a range of amenities including complimentary domestic Wi-Fi, DirectTV® Satellite Television, inflight satellite phone system, Airshow® moving map display, entertainment system with dual DVD/CD player, and berthable seats that will accommodate up to six passengers. A full galley with sink, microwave and convection ovens, dual coffee maker, aft private lavatory with sink, and forward crew lavatory, make this aircraft an attractive option for international trips.
“We are extremely pleased to offer our customers in the New York metro area another great option for long haul trips,” said Chris Battaglia, Director of Charter Sales. “This G450 is equipped with the latest technologies and amenities, ensuring a productive and comfortable flight. It is the perfect complement to our fleet of heavy jets.”
The Gulfstream G450 model incorporates the technological advances of the Gulfstream G550, including the integrated PlaneView cockpit and a redesigned wing to reduce drag. The aircraft also allows for greater fuel capacity, making it ideal for lengthy trips. The Gulfstream G450 was the first business jet to cross Atlantic Ocean using biofuels.

New Jersey’s alcohol industry is experiencing a rebirth, as recently enacted laws are providing new opportunities for the state’s wineries, breweries, and distilleries. One company that has taken advantage of this new legislation is Claremont Distilled Spirits. The company was founded in May of 2014 by current CEO Tim Koether under the principle that world class spirits could be produced in the Garden State.
Since then, Claremont has managed to become the largest craft distillery in New Jersey with over 4,000 gallons of fermentation capacity and 1,000 gallons of distillation capacity. In addition, Claremont takes advantage of the fact that New Jersey is among the nation’s largest producer of a variety fruits and vegetables. They use New Jersey raised potatoes in the vodka production process, as well as an assortment of locally grown fruits, like blueberries and peaches.
Mr. Koether is a firm believer in sourcing his company’s ingredients locally. He says, “Claremont is proudly owned by, and its products proudly produced by, and sold by native, lifelong New Jerseyians. We are proud of our heritage and the products we create. Our attention to detail through constant and personal monitoring throughout the production process results in true craft spirits that we believe are among the finest produced. Upon tasting our spirits, we believe you will agree”.
Claremont Vodka is the first and only craft spirit produced in New Jersey to be awarded a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the most highly regarded spirits competition in the world. In addition, Wine Enthusiast Magazine named Claremont Vodka a Top 100 Spirit of 2016, giving it a 93-point rating.
Meridian is proud to announce that Claremont Vodka will be available on all of its private charter flights upon request.

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company located in Teterboro, NJ (TEB) and Hayward, CA (HWD), has been assisting in the aid efforts being made for the victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Less than two weeks after the storms made landfall on the island, Puerto Rico is now being faced with what officials are calling a “full-blown humanitarian crisis”. The citizens of the island are currently without running water and electricity. Furthermore, 80% of Puerto Rico’s crops have been destroyed, leaving its people desperate for help.
Throughout the past two weeks, we have seen heroic acts of humanitarianism come through our Teterboro FBO. Countless charter flights have been dispatched to help vacate loved ones from the island and to help aid those in need by providing basic supplies.
Recently, Meridian supported the efforts of author, entrepreneur, and reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel. Her B Strong Foundation, which was created to help support women and their families impacted by natural disasters, has raised over $300,000 and chartered 4 planes filled with essential family supplies! We at Meridian have extended a helping hand to her by serving as a storage and staging location for important items such as water, food, hygiene products, and even medical supplies.
We would like to thank everyone who is doing their part to help support Puerto Rico in this time of dire need, as well as the first responders who are continuing to provide support to the island. Nearly all of the U.S. territory’s 3.4 million citizens need our help recovering from the storm.
