About the Wyoming Airports Coalition
Few things are as important to freedom and the American way of life as aviation. It’s impossible to imagine our lives without flying.
Since 1976 we’ve represented the interests of Wyoming’s airports and airport operators to commercial, state and federal agencies. We monitor and weigh in whenever necessary on proposed and pending legislation in both the state legislature and the U.S. Congress.
WAC gives members and visitors a place to exchange ideas and best practices. We promote and encourage public understanding of aviation throughout Wyoming—and ensure safety in the development of airport facilities and in the implementation of operating procedures. We’ve played a key role in influencing positive outcomes on a number of issues affecting airports throughout the state.
Secured state funding for the maintenance of locally owned navigational aids, significantly reducing operating expenses at several airports.
Worked with the Wyoming Division of Aeronautics to adequately fund the Aeronautics grant and loan programs, providing all airports with alternate sources of capital improvement funds.
Lobbied to secure an increase in the legal debt limit for all sizes of airports.
Secured reliable air service at all of Wyoming’s commercial airports.
Air Service funding for ASEP/CPA
Protected tax exemptions for certain aircraft maintenance services
Protected property tax exemptions for airports
