The Wyoming Aviation System is a vital transportation link consisting of 40 publicly owned, public use airports varying in size and function from small general aviation airports to larger facilities with commercial air service. With limited resources available, there is a constant struggle to maintain the current airport system’s facilities while also fostering its evolution to accommodate the changing needs of the aviation industry and the citizens of Wyoming. The previous version of the Wyoming State Aviation System Plan (WYSASP), known as the Wyoming Statewide Airport Inventory and Implementation Plan, was completed in 2009. Changes to the aviation industry and economy have spurred the need to update the 2009 plan.
The 2016 WYSASP will consist of a detailed study of the 40 general aviation and commercial public use airports in the State of Wyoming. It will result in the identification of facilities needed to meet the current and future air transportation needs of the state.
Once complete, the study will provide WYDOT Aeronautics Division staff, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) staff, local government leaders, airport managers, and many other community stakeholders the data needed to make informed decisions to enhance the state’s aviation system.
The 2016 WYSASP will include:
• a complete inventory of facilities and services,
• updated activity forecasts for all system airports,
• an evaluation of historical system progress and anticipated future progress, and
• specific recommendations to meet system goals.
The WYSASP update was initiated in the fall of 2015 and is anticipated to be complete in the spring of 2017. Periodic updates on the project status will be posted here for reference, along with upcoming public meeting information and final documentation.
