Airport Wildlife Management

Pursuant to 14 CFR 139.337(e), the Cheyenne Regional Airport developed a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP) to mitigate and prevent aircraft damage caused from striking wildlife present in the vicinity of the airport.  The WHMP was implemented in conjunction with the Wyoming Air National Guard’s 153rd Airlift Wing’s Bird Aircraft Strike Hazard (BASH) plan.

Local pilots are encouraged to report observing wildlife strikes on the airport or observing wildlife on or in the vicinity of the airport which could present a hazard to aircraft operations to the Airport at info@cheyenneairport.com, or by calling our 24-hour operations duty phone at 307-638-3872.

Pilots involved in a wildlife strike must report the strike as soon as possible to the airport Wildlife Coordinator in order to identify and collect remains.  To help with the reporting process, the pilot may want to either provide the airport with the following information in the provided link or complete the form and provide the Wildlife Coordinator with the reference number: http://wildlife-mitigation.tc.faa.gov/wildlife/strikenew.aspx

Wildlife Coordinator:  Jim Schell, Deputy Director of Aviation. jschell@cheyenneairport.com

The Federal Aviation Administration uses all data provided to trend bird population movements and habitat changes.  All reported data regarding bird strikes may be found by accessing the following link:

Safety Management Systems (SMS)

In 2010 Cheyenne Regional Airport was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to participate in a study regarding the implementation of SMS at U.S. Airports. 

Safety Management Systems (SMS) is a term used to refer to a comprehensive, systematic,  business-like approach to identify hazards and control risks while maintaining assurance that these risk controls are effective.  The end results should be to reduce risk to a level that is As Low As Reasonably Possible (ALARP).

SMS is not a new concept in the world – many other industry sectors have implemented effective SMS programs.  The International Civil Aviation Organization (IACO) has recommended, and required, all civil aviation authorities to implement SMS programs for airports, air traffic control, air carriers, air taxi operators, repair stations, and manufacturers.  Only recently has the FAA considered implementation of SMS programs at US airports.

Ground Transportation Rules and Regulations

In an effort to provide the most safe and efficient operation for our travelers, the Cheyenne Regional Airport implemented a Ground Transportation program which requires all ground transportation providers picking up and dropping off at the Airport Terminal to agree to adhere to a set of rules and regulations which outlines basic safety requirements and conduct. 

Ground operators must provide proof they are a permitted taxicab operator maintaining the basic insurance minimums and provide the most basic requirements for driver and vehicle qualifications as outlined in the City of Cheyenne’s Municipal Codes.  Additionally, operators must provide proof of insurance and agree to adhere to the rules listed in the Airport’s Ground Transportation Rules and Regulations.  Operators failing or refusing to agree to these requirements will not be allowed to operate at the airport, and may be ticketed for trespassing.

For more information please refer to the Ground Transportation Rules and Regulations document, or contact Airport Administration at info@cheyenneairport.com.

Law Enforcement

The Cheyenne Police Department has a sub-station located at the airport and posts an officer in the terminal during most airline operations.  In addition to the Cheyenne Police Department the Wyoming Air National Guard’s Security Forces Squadron provides airport security services inside the perimeter fence of the airport.  Both entities are responsible for providing first-class law enforcement and security services to our users.

If you need police assistance please call 9-1-1.

The Wyoming Air National Guard has a full-time staffed Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) crew on duty 24-hours a day, 7-days a week to provide fire and medical assistance to the airport’s users.  ARFF firefighters are specially trained and equipped to perform fire and rescue operations specific to aircraft incidents and accidents, aircraft fuel spills, and Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) operations.  Cheyenne Fire Rescue, Laramie County Fire Districts 1 & 2, and F.E. Warren Fire Rescue provide assistance to ARFF under local mutual aid agency agreements.

For all fire, rescue, and medical emergencies on the airport you can reach the ARFF Station at 772-6338 or 9-1-1.
