Stellar Aviation Group has won the RFP to establish a new FBO at Reno Tahoe International Airport.February 14, 2020, 12:35 PMStellar Aviation Group has won an RFP tender to operate the second FBO at Reno Tahoe International Airport (RNO) in Nevada. The company had a soft opening late last month at the former Million Air facility, which had remained largely unused for the past several years, as it prepares for construction on its permanent new location. The current 4,000 sq ft terminal includes multiple guest lounge areas, conference room, flight planning area, pilot's lounge with snooze room, canteen, and hangar space large enough to accommodate aircraft up to a Falcon 2000. Stellar received a 50-year lease from the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority to develop 40 acres on the northeast corner of the field, near the Dassault maintenance center. It expects to break ground by the end of the year on the first phase of the more than $20 million project, which will include a 5,000-sq-ft terminal, four acres of ramp, and a 30,000-sq-ft hangar able to shelter the latest big business jets, with 6,250 sq ft of office and shop space. The new facility is expected to be operational in 18 to 24 months. Subsequent phases will add two additional large hangars, as well as the development of a second parcel of land which will offer 50,000 sq ft of T and box hangars, a 2,500 sq ft GA community assembly building, and an additional 2.5 acres of apron. Stellar also operates facilities at Palm Beach County Park Airport in Florida and at Springfield Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport in Illinois, as well as managing the Dassault FBO at Delaware’s New Castle County Airport.  “This new location is another strategic cornerstone for our growing FBO network as we look to expand beyond the East Coast and Midwest by garnering an important foothold in the West,” said company president Jonathan Miller. “We intend to provide services and facilities to not only the myriad of users that call, or want to call RNO their home base, but also the significant transient operators that require such services at this bustling airport.” Business Aviation
