Meridian has successfully completed ground handling and servicing training for large cabin and mid-cabin Gulfstream aircraft conducted by FlightSafety International.

The training consists of two online courses designed for line service technicians and cover large-cabin Gulfstream aircraft (the G350, G450, G500, G550 and G650) and mid-cabin Gulfstream aircraft (the G150, G200 and G280). Both Meridian Teterboro and Meridian Hayward have completed both the mid-cabin and large cabin training.

Available to fixed-base operators that handle Gulfstream aircraft, the programme is designed to raise awareness for aircraft safety during servicing and improve dispatch reliability. Topics covered include aircraft parking, towing and mooring, water servicing, window cleaning, snow and ice removal and a comprehensive tour of the aircraft itself.

“We are always seeking new ways to improve the customer experience,” said Jeff Torres, Meridian’s 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.”

Duncan Aviation completed the same course in June 2017.
