Yellowstone Airport General Aviation Winter Operations Survey

This airport inventory and data survey request is being made by the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT). The Yellowstone Airport (WYS) has historically operated May thru mid-October due to harsh winter weather conditions and lower aviation traffic demand in winter months. This information will be used by the Consulting Team to evaluate the potential benefits, requirements and costs of extending the operating season into the winter months. Please complete as much of the enclosed survey as possible to the best of your ability and return it as follows. Your attention and time is appreciated.

If you have questions about this form, please contact Travis Eickman of Morrison-Maierle or 406-922-6810.
