Westchester County Unveils Draft Plan For New Hangar, FBO Terminal Space
WHITE PLAINS—Earlier this month, Westchester County announced the availability for review of and comment on a Draft Environmental Assessment for the Million Air Redevelopment/Development project at the Westchester County Airport. The purpose of the project is to provide general aviation hangar and FBO terminal space for existing airport users and Million Air customers while also accommodating existing light general aviation needs.
The DEA evaluates the environmental, social, and economic consequences of the proposed Million Air project. The DEA covers two projects referred to as Phase one and Phase two in the DEA. Phase one included the construction of a 50,400-square-foot hangar and a 17,150-square-foot Fixed Based Operator terminal building with associated parking, sidewalk and landscaped areas. Phase one was an improvement approved in the 2016 lease entered into by the Astorino administration between the County of Westchester and White Plains Aviation Partners, LLC doing business as Million Air White Plains, an FBO
at the airport. Phase one was not complete until 2021 when Million Air was required to construct the stormwater management improvements for Phase one by the Latimer administration.
Phase two would involve the proposed future construction of a 78,344-square-foot hangar that was not approved in the 2016 lease between the county and Million Air. Additional stormwater improvements are required if Phase two were to proceed. The DEA does not constitute county approval of Phase II, the county stated.
