Meridian Mourns the Loss of its Founder, J. Kenneth Forester, Sr.

Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company based at Teterboro Airport, regrets to announce the loss of its founder and aviation pioneer, J. Kenneth Forester, Sr. He died suddenly on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at the age of 94.

Known among his Meridian colleagues as ‘Ken Sr.’ to distinguish him from his son of the same name, Mr. Forester had an illustrious career in aviation. It all began in 1941, when he got his pilot’s license at the age of 18. The following year, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps, and from 1944 to 1948, was a test pilot, flying fighters, bombers and transport aircraft. He flew the nation’s first jet, the Bell Airacomet P-59, and the first operational jet fighter, the Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star.

He attained a mechanic’s license while in the military, and after discharge in 1946, founded Mallard Air Service at Teterboro Airport. Mallard was a distributor for the Republic Seabee and the North American Navion and was a maintenance base and charter operator. Mallard later converted C-47s from military to civilian aircraft. Ken Sr. left Mallard in 1951 to manage a wire machinery plant in Paterson, NJ and work part time selling and maintaining Navions at Teterboro Airport. In 1958, he was offered a location on the west side of the airport and started a new business that he called General Aviation Company.

His son, Ken, a graduate of the US Air Force Academy and former F-102 pilot, took over full time management of the company in 1974. In 1986, the company became a Million Air franchise. Today, the company is independently owned and operated by the Forester family.

In 2002, the Federal Aviation Administration presented Ken Sr. with the Charles Taylor Master Mechanic award. Named after Charles Taylor, a mechanic for the Wright Brothers airplane, the award recognizes aviation maintenance personnel who have at least 50 years of experience in the industry. In 2008, he was inducted into the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame during the organization’s 35th annual induction dinner.

Ken Forester, Sr. was a beloved husband for 67 years to the late Annabelle H. (nee Hewitt) and father of Ken and his wife Susan, Gary and his wife Lynne, Lynn and her husband Evelyn, David and his wife Mary, and grandfather to thirteen grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He will be missed by family, friends, and colleagues alike.
