Denver, 13 August 2018 – Ross Aviation has expanded its footprint and hangar capacity at Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport in Thermal, California by purchasing a modern 26,000ft storage hangar that is immediately adjacent to Ross Aviation’s executive terminal.

Ross Aviation also leased a 2.2 acre parcel of completed ‘heavy ramp’ from Riverside County EDA, which is the airport authority. The additional 2.2 acre of completed ramp is located immediately in front of the hangar and is contiguous to the existing Ross Aviation leasehold and ramp. The hangar was constructed in 2014 and was owned by local businessman and aviation enthusiast, Richard Oliphant.

“Given the growth of the airport, it made absolute sense for us to purchase the hangar and the additional ramp. The additional ramp and available hangar space will greatly improve our ability to service our customers and provide space in the busy winter season when the Coachella Valley is host numerous events and influx of seasonal residents, which attract dozens of business and general aircraft,” said Cy Farmer, Chief Operating Officer of Ross Aviation.

Ross Aviation currently operates nine FBO’s at seven airports – Thermal, CA; White Plains, NY; Scottsdale, AZ; Long Beach, CA: Fresno, CA: Anchorage, AK and Fairbanks, AK.
