SAN BERNARDINO: Airport could become drone research hub

San Bernardino International Airport could become ground zero for commercial drone research and technology.

The airport is partnering with Tesla Foundation Group, not connected to Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors, but a leader in the field of drone use and technology.

“The (drone) industry is evolving and we are trying to evolve with it,” said Mark Gibbs, director of aviation at SBIA.

Airport officials and the Tesla Foundation Group have been working to find other partners, resources and systems to support the National Commercial Drone Research Center, the “think tank and research and development center,” Gibbs said, which could open next year.

San Bernardino airport gets first passenger airline

Fielding Buck | Press-Enterprise | 11 Apr 2017

Volaris airlines’ launch of nonstop flights to Guadalajara will give San Bernardino International Airport a full slate of services.

An airport needs “five lines of business,” according to Mark Gibbs, director of aviation, and when Volaris begins regular passenger service on June 29 it will give San Bernardino its fifth line.

The airport already offers business service; general aviation, including charter service; maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO); and cargo service.

In November, the airport entered into an agreement with United Parcel Service to add four 757 aircraft flights a week to Louisville, Ky., for package shipments during holiday season.

Gibbs said San Bernardino could become like Long Beach Airport, which was first known for those other services but is now familiar to passengers as well.
