Stellar Aviation, which operates FBOs in Florida, Illinois, and Nevada, has broken ground on a facility at Reno-Tahoe International. The $25M project on the northeast corner of the airfield, adjacent to the Dassault Aircraft Services facility, will include a 5,000-sq-ft terminal and a pair of 30,000-sq-ft heated hangars that can shelter ultra-long-range jets. It will also have 10,000 sq ft of combined attached office space, five acres of ramp area, covered car parking, and electric vehicle chargers.
When the first phase of construction is completed by mid-2024, it will replace the two terminals on either side of the field, which Stellar said are unable to meet its growing transient business aircraft demand at KRNO. Those structures will be retained and repurposed as GA and semi-private terminals. It currently has 25,000 sq ft of hangar space, which is nearing full capacity.
Epic Fuels-branded FBO is also about to complete the installation of a
40,000-gallon tank farm. By May, it plans to become the first location
in Nevada to introduce SAF, which it will stock on
an ongoing basis.
