Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport in Teterboro, NJ, is pleased to announce the addition of a Falcon 7X (N221HJ) to its growing charter fleet of private business jets. This ultra-long range aircraft was completed in 2008, and seats up to fourteen passengers. It also has the capacity to sleep up to seven for long haul trips. It is based at Teterboro Airport, and is immediately available for charter (Certificate IMJA053F).

The Falcon 7X is a large cabin, tri-jet manufactured by Dassault Falcon Jet. It has a range of up to 6,847 statute miles with a maximum speed of 592 mph, and it is the first business jet to incorporate fly-by-wire technology, a system that replaces conventional manual flight controls with an electronic interface. Until the launch of the Falcon 8X in 2014, the 7X model was the company’s flagship and debuted at the Paris Air Show in 2005.

This late-model Falcon comes fully-equipped with all of the features and amenities expected from today’s discerning business traveler: leather club seating, a full galley with microwave and convection ovens, coffee maker and espresso machine, private lavatory with sink, and even a wine cooler refrigerator.

The aircraft also features the latest technology, including complimentary domestic Wifi, an inflight satellite phone system, large 18” bulkhead monitors with Airshow® 3D moving maps, individual viewing monitors, a multi-function printer/copier/fax machine, and a multimedia entertainment center that features a DVD/CD player.

Mike Moore, VP of Aviation Sales, says, “We are truly excited to be able to offer this beautiful Falcon 7X to our clients. While this is not our first ultra-long range jet in our managed fleet, it is our first 7X. This Dassault model now gives us the opportunity to cater to our transatlantic customers who want to choose from a range of options. With plenty of room to stretch out on long haul trips, and with all the modern amenities onboard, we expect demand to be high for this charter aircraft.”

Meridian currently manages a wide range of aircraft types that are available for private charter: Global 5000, Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream GIV-SP, Falcon 7X, Falcon 900EX EASy, Falcon 2000EX EASy, Falcon 2000, Challenger 605, Challenger 604, Challenger 601, Gulfstream G200, Hawker 900XP, Hawker 800XP, Citation XLS, and Citation VII. Other aircraft types can also be obtained through Meridian’s extensive network of qualified operators.
