Dulles reliever to gain bizav FBO
New York City-based Arcadia Aviation announced plans late last month to create a $20 million, 200,000-sq-ft corporate hangar and office complex at Eastern West Virginia Regional Airport (MRB) in Martinsburg, W.Va. Groundbreaking for the first phase–a 20,000-sq-ft hangar with 3,600 sq ft of attached offices–is anticipated early next year. Future hangar expansion will be capable of storing BBJ, 757 and MD-80 size aircraft. MRB’s main runway is being lengthened to accommodate Air National Guard C-5 Galaxy operations. Arcadia Aviation has signed a long-term ground lease with the airport and has acquired Aero-Smith, the former longtime full-service FBO at MRB.
