Air Service in Sheridan
The Critical Air Service Team (CAST) – a task force from Sheridan and Johnson Counties, along with officials in each county – has been working for well over a year now on meeting the need for greatly improved commercial air service for the Sheridan County Airport.
Great Lakes Airlines, already with greatly reduced service in Sheridan, has just announced that its last day of service here will be March 31.
Sheridan County has received a grant from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) that can be used toward an incentive for another airline. WYDOT Aeronautics has state enhancement dollars for air service in the state, subject to certain obligations and demands (including private sector donations) that Sheridan and Johnson County are hoping to meet.
CAST members are meeting again with SkyWest Airlines later this month in continued discussions about SkyWest’s possible service to Sheridan.
The process is slow but persistent in moving toward having the air service needed for Sheridan/Johnson Counties.
In the meantime, take a look at the 3-minute video (produced by the Chamber’s Ryan Koltiska, also a CAST member) being included in the presentation to SkyWest – a great way to underscore the community support! CAST video for SkyWest
The Critical Air Service Team (CAST), chaired by Bruce Garber, includes the Chamber, Sheridan Travel & Tourism, Forward Sheridan, and additional partners, working with city and county officials.
