Meridian TEB and Meridian HWD Complete Gulfstream Service Training

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company, is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed ground handling and servicing training for large cabin and mid-cabin Gulfstream aircraft. Gulfstream offers the training in partnership with FlightSafety International, who developed the curriculum for the training courses. The program is designed to raise awareness for aircraft safety during servicing and improve dispatch reliability. The training is available to fixed-base operators (FBOs) that handle Gulfstream aircraft.

The two online training courses are designed for line service technicians and cover large cabin Gulfstream (G350, G450, G500, G550, G650) and mid-cabin Gulfstream (G150, G200, G280) models.

“We are always seeking new ways to improve the customer experience,” said Jeff Torres, Line Service Training Coordinator. “Adding another level of expertise only adds to the quality service we offer our customers, and in this case, those who operate or travel on a Gulfstream model aircraft.”

Gulfstream recognizes those FBOs that have successfully reached 100% Line Technician completion of the training. Meridian Teterboro and Meridian Hayward have completed both the mid-cabin and large cabin training. Subjects covered in the training include aircraft parking, towing and mooring, water servicing, window cleaning, snow and ice removal, and a comprehensive tour of the aircraft itself.

“Meridian is dedicated to continuous improvement opportunities which help us maintain the highest standards,” adds Carlos Rodriguez, General Manager of Meridian Hayward. “We are pleased to have attained another endorsement which adds to our commitment to safety, reliability and outstanding customer service.”
