Million Air Taking Corporate Aviation to New Heights

County and local officials gathered with more than 60 business leaders to celebrate the grand opening of Million Air’s new hangar at its corporate aviation complex at Westchester County Airport. The two-story, 52,000-square-foot hangar features 28-foot height doors capable of housing a Gulfstream 650, which is Gulfstream’s largest business jet. Floors are heated with a high-tech radiant heat system that allows temperatures to be maintained for aircraft and pilots.

“The growth and development of our Million Air network and brand has come as a result of strong dedication from all levels within the organization,” said Roger Woolsey, CEO of Million Air. “As our employees continue to create powerful first impressions at the Westchester County Airport, we are reinvesting in our facilities to create more jobs and better service our customers. This is a win-win for our team and the Westchester County community.”

Among those attending the event were BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon, Westchester County Director of Operations Joan McDonald, Westchester County Board of Legislators Chairman Ben Boykin, Westchester County Legislator MaryJane Shimsky and Harrison Town Supervisor/Mayor Ron Belmont.

Construction is currently under way on a new 18,000-square-foot terminal. Located adjacent to Million Air’s new hangar, the two-story Adirondack-styled terminal will feature conference rooms, pilot lounge with sleep rooms, barista staffed grand coffee bar, climate-controlled indoor valet area and additional parking. The new terminal is expected be completed by the end of this year.
