March Airfield May Land General Aviation Terminal

The March Joint Powers Authority soon will consider approving construction of a $1.6 million general aviation terminal at the joint use airfield at March Air Reserve Base in Southern California. A terminal would be the next step in opening up the airport at the former March Air Force Base to private aircraft and corporate jets since the authority and the Air Force agreed in 2008 to allow general aviation traffic. In 2004, the Federal Aviation Administration disqualified the authority from receiving grant funding because it did not allow general aviation.

The FAA’s Military Airport Program likely would cover 95 percent of the terminal’s cost, reported the Press-Enterprise.
