Bishop International Airport Director Jim Rice is expected to announce his retirement during today’s Airport Authority Board Meeting. Rice has been with Bishop International Airport since 1990 and is the first, and only director, to serve under the Airport Authority which was formed in 1987.

In a news release, Rices says “it was a tough decision. I take a lot of pride in what we have been able to accomplish here, as well as in how our employees and community feel about the airport.” Rice noted that during his tenure, a state-of-the-art passenger facility was built and cargo and general aviation operations were expanded. Rice added “Bishop Airport is well respected in this region, and throughout the field of aviation. It has been humbling to be part of these achievements.”

It’s anticipated that the Airport Authority Board will institute a nationwide search to replace Rice. His last day will be October 8, 2014.
