Aviation History of Wyoming


From the day the first airplane took off from Riverton in 1911, Wyoming has had a brave and pioneering history of aviation. "Barnstormers," airmail pilots, flying physicians, and even aviation celebrities like Amelia Earhart have all shaped the history of air flight in Wyoming.

Today, Wyoming's ten commercial airports service several international airports via a dozen domestic carriers with over a hundred flights. These ten airports offer a wide variety of modern services and amenities, including wireless internet, home-cooked dining, conference facilities, rental cars, art museums, and gift shops.
