Camarillo Airport (KCMA) gets last funds for hangar project



The Camarillo Airport has been awarded a $3.76 million federal grant, completing the funding for a $10.7 million hangar project.

County Airports Director Todd McNamee said the award from the Federal Aviation Administration plus a matching state grant of $100,000 will pay for infrastructure for 41 hangars.

The structures are expected to be finished by late next year, shortening the waiting list of 130 people. 

The federal money will be spent on taxi lanes, drainage systems, water and power connections plus planning, design and environmental costs, McNamee said Friday. 

The county will pay for the hangars with $6.75 million in airport revenues, he said.

McNamee said he hopes to break ground within 90 days.

Rep. Julia Brownley, D-Westlake Village, a member of a House panel on aviation, announced the award earlier this month. The funds are generated by fuel excise taxes and airfares.
