A Hidden Secret Unveiled to General Aviation Enthusiasts in SoCal…
The Civil Airport Authority at March Air Reserve Base has its Grand Opening of a New GA Terminal at March Inland Port (RIV)
The March Joint Powers Authority held a ribbon cutting and grand opening on May 6, 2015 for the recently completed general aviation terminal and apron at March Inland Port Airport. San-Diego-based C&S Companies was the airport authority’s consultant who prepared environmental, planning, and design for the $9 million development. Arcadis-US provided construction management and supervised Granite Construction’s work on behalf of the airport authority. The project includes a new 5,000-square-foot general aviation terminal and a 150,000-square-foot ramp that can accommodate almost any aircraft size or type. Because the airport is “OPEN TO THE PUBLIC”, general aviation pilots may use March Air Reserve Base (RIV) and its 13,301-foot runway and extensive ramp space without Prior Permission Requests (PPR) or landing permits. The general aviation terminal includes a generous passenger lounge, state-of-the-art theater room, flight-planning room, multi-media conference room, multi-media training room, and the Jet-A-Way Café. Million Air, one of the largest fixed-based operators for private aviation in the world. They occupy portions of the facility and will host a full serve fixed base operation (FBO) including a new café’ for the community and public aviation users. The airport authority has also made it its home. March Inland Port Airport Authority will conduct its operational and administrative functions from the new terminal.
Gary Gosliga, Airport Director stated, “C&S designed a phenomenal facility for the local general aviation community in Riverside County, California. Equally important, the new facility supports domestic and international corporate enterprises that frequent the area primarily because March Inland Port is centered in one of the fasted growing warehouse and logistics development areas in the nation. The amenities offered to pilots is unmatched in the area and has become a source of pride at our airport”. Mr. Gosliga further stated, “The relationship with Million Air, and the investments they have made to the new terminal, have complemented the original design in true “Million Air Fashion”. We have an enthusiastic outlook in the continued development of our civil aviation airport at RIV. It has been a “hidden secret” for years… until now.”
“Where in the LA basin can you find an airport with a 13,301-foot runway, massive amounts of ramp space, a new Million Air FBO, easy arrival and departure procedures to the airport with no congestion and direct access to the major interstates that feed the LA basin?” said Scott Freeman, CEO of Freeman Holdings Group. It is unheard of in the southern California area!”
Million Air Riverside (KRIV) has easy access to Interstate 215 and is only minutes away from multiple industrial and business complexes such as Amazon, Ross, and O’Reilly Auto parts. This location will afford clients ease of travel, un-congested ground movement and the care and service that is the hallmark of Million Air.
Adjacent to the FBO, the March Inland Port Airport Authority has more than 20,000 square feet of ground available for hangar development. Tenants have immediate access to more than 1,000,000 square feet of cargo ramp space for aircraft requiring that type of capability.
