 - February 23, 2012, 2:20 PM

Landmark Aviation was recently awarded a 37-year lease to operate an FBO at San Diego International Airport. It currently operates the former Jimsair Aviation Services on the field, which it acquired in July 2008. Under the new agreement, Landmark will design and build a new FBO with a 20,000-sq-ft terminal, a 250,000-sq-ft ramp and five hangars on a 12.4-acre leasehold. The new FBO building is required to achieve LEED Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, but Landmark said it will meet LEED Platinum certification, the highest rating available.
