SAN BERNARDINO – It doesn’t take an aviation expert to see that San Bernardino International Airport is replete with potential. The commercial jet-ready runway. The cavernous hangars sheltering 727s, 737s and larger aircraft as technicians work on their bodies and engines. The towering terminal. Officials say at least some of that potential will be realized by the end of the year, when they expect the airport to have passenger service.

STOCKTON – San Joaquin County has operated Stockton Metropolitan Airport since 1956, but the Board of Supervisors will consider whether to reorganize how the airport is governed in an effort to give the greatest public representation and efficiency. The board is taking advantage of being without an airport director to consider a reorganization of the airport’s staff and governance. The airport’s future was discussed at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting and supervisors were hesitant to take the airport out of their control. “I would never support giving up governance of the airport,” Supervisor Leroy Ornellas said.
