Kingman Airport lease explored

KINGMAN – The City of Kingman is soliciting Requests For Proposals (RFP) for a vendor to lease and develop acreage for aviation business activity at the municipal airport.
The RFP was posted to the city website on May 29, the week after the City Council approved a staff request to invite an RFP from Davcon Aviation, the only company to respond to Kingman’s previous Request For Qualifications for the initiative.
Five different Kingman Airport parcels totaling 339 acres are earmarked for aviation commerce activity to stimulate development and generate revenue. Airport Manager Doug Breckenridge has advised a potential investment between $200-million and $250-million is anticipated if a lease development contract is awarded.
“It’s not just targeting to store aircraft, it’s actually targeting aviation business and aviation business growth,” Breckenridge said.
Council member Jamie Stehly expressed enthusiastic support.
“This is a very exciting time to see that kind of interest made on the air side,” Stehly said. “We’ve seen so much happening lately in the Industrial Park, but this complements.”
Councilor Cengiz Arik called it “an amazing project” with tremendous potential.
Breckenridge said the endeavor is highly unique because such arrangements usually occur at larger airports. He noted there’s lots of work remaining and no certainty that a deal gets done.
“I keep saying `possible’, because nothing’s guaranteed until we have ink on the paper.”
Davcon has until July 8 to submit a proposal that will be scored by a panel before next steps might occur, including contract negotiation.
