ONTARIO – When Erik Hartley came from South Carolina to consider a job as Ontario’s new airport manager, he “just fell in love with the town.”

According to Hartley, most people who rise to become airport managers at general aviation airports – that’s the category of airport that Ontario Municipal Airport falls into – would probably see the role as a stepping stone toward eventually serving at a big commercial airport . . .
