New lease awarded to Landmark at San Diego


Landmark Aviation has been awarded a new 37 year lease at San Diego International Airport

Landmark Aviation was
awarded a 37-year lease to operate a fixed base operation at San Diego International
Airport on February 9,
2012 at the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s February Board
Meeting. Landmark, which acquired Jimsair Aviation Services in July of 2008, is
the current FBO operator on the field.

“We have enjoyed working
with the San Diego Airport Authority over the past four years, and we are
excited to continue that relationship,” stated Dan Bucaro, president and chief
executive of Landmark. “We have also developed some great relationships within
the San Diego
community, and look forward to continuing our involvement there as well. San
Diego International is an important field for general aviation. Retaining it
within the Landmark network continues our focus on such high quality markets.”

Under the new agreement,
Landmark will design, build and operate a new FBO, with a terminal, apron and
five hangars on the airfield. The new FBO building is required to achieve LEED
Silver certification from the US Green Building Council. However, Landmark has
committed to achieve LEED Platinum certification, the highest possible rating.

“This award marks an
exciting moment for San Diego’s
aviation community,” said Thella F. Bowens, president and chief executive of
the Airport Authority. “The new FBO will be a beautiful addition to our
airport. We have had a wonderful experience working with Landmark, and look
forward to many more years of partnership.”

Last year Landmark Aviation
added eleven new FBOs to its network, including Miami,
Atlanta, Tampa and
