    2013 Wyoming Airports Economic Impact Study:

    In late 2013, the Aeronautics Division of the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) completed an important research project to investigate the value to the state from airports and airport supported services. 

    To determine potential benefits associated with the 35 public-use commercial and general aviation airport in Wyoming, outreach to each airport was completed.  This outreach included:  

    • Surveys of 4,000 travelers using commercial and general aviation airports
    • Direct mailings to 400 businesses
    • Contact with 30 statewide agencies and organizations
    • Contact with 50 chambers of commerce and economic development groups
    • Distribution of an online survey link via 40 media/news outlets

    Results of the outreach clearly show that residents and businesses, and visitors do indeed benefit from Wyoming airports.  

    The summary of the benefits identified, the entire Economic Impact Executive Summary, and all of the different reports generated from this study can be found here.
