About this Event

The Wyoming Airport Operators Association is excited to be hosting a memorable Fall 2019 Conference in Casper, Wyoming at the Ramkota Hotel. The WAOA Board of Directors Meeting will be held on September 10th at the Casper/Natrona County International Airport’s new Airport Maintenance Facility and the Board of Directors welcomes anyone who may want to attend.

Our annual golf tournament is scheduled for September 11th at the premier Three Crowns Golf Club. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and is 110 acres of manicured turf and 45 acres of native grasses. If you’re not a golfer, we invite you to join us in the first annual WAOA Fun Run/Walk. The run/walk event starts at the Tate Pumphouse with its scenic view of the rapids on the Platte River Trail and circles the Three Crowns Golf Course.

The welcome reception will be held at the Gaslight Social, located in the heart of the Old Yellowstone District. Transportation from the hotel will be provided to and from Gaslight. Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, classic arcade games, and outdoor games. While at the Gaslight, we encourage you to take an opportunity to walk around David Street Station. David Street Station was inspired by Rapid City’s Main Street Square and is the vision of the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Board. The DDA wanted to bring businesses, jobs, and economic stimulus to the entire city via downtown growth by providing free activities for families in Casper. David Street Station is a short stroll from the Gaslight.

Finally, we will cap off the evening by observing a night burn that will light up the sky at the Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting Regional Training Facility at Casper/Natrona County International Airport. You will be able to see and feel what it’s like for firefighters to put out an aircraft fire.

Thursday the 12th kicks off with a hearty breakfast before the start of our business sessions. Learn about what is new with the FAA, WYDOT Aeronautics, and TSA; new construction methods for vertical construction; opportunities and hurdles for airports looking at solar power use; legal and risk management best practices; connecting Wyoming airports with the Wyoming Legislature; learn about the remote air traffic control tower program; and finally join in on discussion during the General Aviation or Commercial Airport roundtables.

We will end the evening with the much anticipated WAOA annual reception and banquet and hear from Craig Johnson, New York Times bestselling author of the 14 Longmire mysteries based in Wyoming. Of course, we will have plenty of time during breakfast, breaks, and lunch to visit with all our conference exhibitors!

Friday will start with breakfast and then the WAOA general membership meeting. Immediately following the general membership meeting will be the WYDOT Aeronautics Commission Business Meeting, and before heading home, participate in BlackCat training.

Of course, you are welcome to stick around for a day (or two, or three) and enjoy all that Casper and Natrona County has to offer! Hike some of our amazing mountain trails, go fly fishing or kayak the North Platte River, or visit the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center. Enjoy the local food and breweries, live music, and don’t forget some of our best food in Casper is on wheels, so keep an eye out for the many food trucks in Casper.
