Grand opening for C&S-designed terminal building at March Inland Port

March-Terminal-1 March-Terminal-2The March Joint Powers Authority held a ribbon cutting and grand opening on May 6 for the recently completed general aviation terminal and apron at March Inland Port Airport. San-Diego-based C&S Companies was the authority’s consultant for all environmental, planning, and design for the $9 million development. 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 joint use, pilots can use March Air Reserve Base and its 13,301-foot runway and extensive ramp space. 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. 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.

Million Air, one of the largest fixed-based operators for private aviation in the world, occupies the facility and will host a full serve fixed base operation (FBO) along with a new restaurant for the community and public aviation users. “Over six years in the making, C&S designed a facility that puts our airport on the map for general aviation users. The amenities offered to pilots is unmatched in the area and a source of pride for our airport.” said Gary Gosliga, Airport Director.

“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.
