Teterboro, NJ, August 26, 2015 – Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce the addition of its second Bombardier Challenger 605 (N529DM) to its growing fleet of private business jets. This large cabin aircraft began service in 2012 and seats up to nine passengers. It is based at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT), and is immediately available for charter (Certificate IMJA053F).
This impressive business jet comes fully-equipped and loaded with amenities: leather club seating, conference tables, berthable divan, full galley with sink, microwave and convection ovens, coffee machine, and private lavatory with sink. It also features the latest technology: Inmarsat® satellite phone, Gogo Biz® high-speed wifi, bulkhead video monitors with Airshow® (3D moving maps), and a dual multi-media player.
Mike Moore, Vice President of Aviation Sales, says, “We are very excited about adding a second Challenger 605 to our charter fleet. This aircraft comes fully furnished with everything a business traveler would expect to find in his or her office-in-the-sky. With a range of 4,000 (nautical) miles, this late-model aircraft is a great fit for our portfolio because it increases the depth of our heavy jet offerings for our customers, who are now flying farther and more often.”
The Challenger 605 is an evolution from its predecessor, the Challenger 604, offering best-in-class cabin comfort combined with its ability to operate cost effectively. Bombardier added numerous enhancements when it designed this model. In the cockpit, avionics include an impressive Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 with four large flat-panel displays. The cabin was enlarged with space-efficient interior wall panels to increase usable head-room and width for passengers. Even cabin windows were enlarged to allow 30% more light than previous Challenger 600 models.
