Then – The original grass field runway presented “Barnstormers,” opportunities to sell plane rides and entertain area residents with their aerial acrobatics while en-route, traveling across the country.
In the 1930s, airmail was sporadic which lead to the development of a Municipal Air Field for this type of mail delivery. In the years that followed, the airport changed quickly and dramatically. Later, air service offered two and four passenger flights to Casper, Wyoming and Great Falls, Montana.
Now – Surrounded by the stunning Bighorn Mountains and from the Malcolm Wallop Terminal, Sheridan County Airport provides direct and daily jet air service to and from Denver, Colorado. Named for former Sheridan County resident and US Senator Malcolm Wallop, the terminal is the entry point to commercial passenger air service provided by United Express, operated by SkyWest Airlines. With daily air service to Denver International Airport, local passengers have global access. Those traveling to Sheridan are offered the same quality and safe air service.
Aircraft repair, full-service fueling, avionics installation and repair and charter airline service provide additional options for many private aircraft and jets based out of Sheridan and those that utilize SCA. Today, Sheridan County Airport is heralded as the busiest airport in the State of Wyoming.
