Press Release November 6, 2017 »

Jackson, WY…. In May 2017 the Jackson Hole Airport Board (Board) found that a second FBO could be accommodated at the Jackson Hole Airport, once the Airport’s new fuel facility is operational in 2018. It directed staff to develop an RFP for a second FBO at the Airport. While this was being developed, the current FBO operator, Jackson Hole Aviation LLC (JHA), approached the Board about purchasing its assets to avoid probable inefficiencies associated with having two FBOs operating on the same ramp. At its November 1st Meeting, the Board considered both options, and selected the purchase of JHA’s assets – for $26 million

AIRPORT BOARD INVESTIGATES PURCHASE OF FIXED BASE OPERATION »

AIRPORT BOARD INVESTIGATES PURCHASE OF FIXED BASE OPERATION
August 16, 2017

In May of this year, the Jackson Hole Airport Board determined that under applicable FAA guidelines, when its new fuel facility became operational in mid-2018, it would be required to accommodate a second Fixed Base Operator (“FBO”) at the Airport. It therefore directed staff to develop a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) for that second FBO.

Thereafter, the Airport’s current FBO, Jackson Hole Aviation LLC (“JHA LLC”), approached the Airport’s Executive Director and suggested that the inefficiencies associated with two FBOs operating on the same ramp could be avoided, if the Board purchased and operated the single FBO on the Airport.

Though a second FBO must be accommodated under FAA’s general rule, the law provides an exception in situations where the airport operator itself chooses to exclusively own and operate the FBO. This has been done at several airports in the United States.

The Board’s Executive Director, attorney and General Aviation Committee have begun to investigate and study such a possible purchase. This review is ongoing, and the General Aviation Committee is not yet prepared to make a recommendation to the Board.

The Board believes a careful investigation regarding purchase of the FBO is in the public interest, because such a purchase might (a) allow for better efficiency and safety of operations on the general aviation ramp and at the fuel facility, (b) avoid the cost of constructing duplicate FBO facilities, © conserve scarce Airport land; and (d) permit the Board to achieve a good return on its investment – helping to assure the Airport can fund needed capital improvements and remain financially self-sufficient.

At its August 16, 2017 meeting, the Board therefore adopted a motion to (1) continue to hold in abeyance the application for a second FBO, and the request of JHA LLC to build additional FBO facilities, and (2) postpone until its September meeting, the issuance of an RFP for operation of a second FBO at the Airport. The Board anticipates that by its September meeting the General Aviation Committee will have completed its review and be in a position to make a recommendation to the full Board regarding a possible purchase.

Issuance of an RFP for a second FBO in September, or even October, would still be nine or 10 months in advance of when the new fuel facility is expected to begin operations, and thus when a second FBO could first be accommodated on the Airport. Because the Board proposes to construct necessary capital improvement – the fuel facility, hangars and parking – this time frame should be adequate.

In the meantime, preparation and refinement of an RFP for a second FBO will continue. This will ensure that when the Board is presented with a recommendation regarding purchase of the FBO, it will be in a position to either immediately issue the RFP for a second FBO, or pursue the purchase of single FBO on the Airport.

For further information contact Jim Elwood, A.A.E., Executive Director, at jim.elwood@jhairport.org, or 307-733-7695.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR 2017 BUSINESS READY APPLICATION FOR COMMUNITY GRANT AND LOAN PROGRAM PROJECT »

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
FOR 2017 BUSINESS READY APPLICATION FOR COMMUNITY GRANT AND LOAN PROGRAM PROJECT

The Wyoming Business Council (WBC) is seeking grant and loan applications from counties, municipalities, joint powers boards, and tribes for the Business Ready Community (BRC) Grant and Loan Program. The program helps to ready communities for new business development through economic or educational development projects which may include, among other things, airport projects. The rules governing the BRC Grant and Loan Program are available through the WBC or http://www.wyomingbusiness.org.

The Jackson Hole Airport Board (Board) intends to submit an application for a BRC loan and grant for construction of a consolidated above ground fuel facility (the “Project”). The current capacity of the fuel facility at the Airport is not sufficient to meet the needs of airline and other aircraft during times of peak demand. To address this problem the proposed facility will provide 3 days fuel storage, compared with one day in the current facility.

The Project will be a common use facility with a smaller footprint that would provide the Airport with sufficient fuel capacity to handle existing and anticipated future passenger volumes and peaks. This will enhance air transport to the community, which in turn is expected to retain and promote businesses which use the Airport and rely on adequate community air service, and thus will support the economy of Teton County.

The Project is estimated to cost $10.3 million. The Board is exploring a variety of funding sources for the Project, including the BRC Grant and Loan Program administered by the WBC. The Board proposes to apply for a $1.5 million loan and a $1.5 million grant under this Program. Matching and additional moneys for this Project would come from Board reserve funds.

Comments: The Board is soliciting comments on its proposed application. Written comments and opinions should be submitted no later than August 11, 2017. They should be addressed to:

Jim Elwood, A.A.E., Airport Director
P.O. Box 159. Jackson, Wyoming 83001
Fax (307) 733-9270 Email: jim.elwood@jhairport.org

Public Hearing: Rules of the WBC require the Board to solicit citizen input through a public hearing before submission of an application. The Board will hold such a public hearing as part of its regular meeting on August 16, 2017, commencing at 8:30 a.m. in the Board Room at the Jackson Hole Airport. Immediately after the public hearing, the Airport Board will consider all comments and the adoption of a Resolution approving the filing of an application.

Further Information: Further information about the proposed application may be obtained upon request at the above address or by calling (307) 733-7682.

Ground Transportation Rule »

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULEMAKING

PROPOSED AMENDED AND RESTATED GROUND TRANSPORTATION RULE
JACKSON HOLE AIRPORT BOARD
March 3, 2017

BACKGROUND:

A variety of commercial ground transportation services are available to and from the Jackson Hole Airport (the “Airport”), including taxis, executive service providers, shuttles, courtesy vehicles and bus services. The Jackson Hole Airport Board (the “Board”) regulates ground transportation businesses on the Airport through a “Ground Transportation Rule,” seasonal “ground transportation plans” adopted pursuant to the Rule, and agreements with individual ground transportation providers.

The Wyoming Legislature has recently adopted Enrolled Act No. 84 (the “Act”), which creates Chapter 20 of Title 31, Wyoming Statutes, authorizing “transportation network companies” (TNCs”) such as Uber and Lyft to operate in Wyoming.

PROPOSED RULE:

Before it can enter into agreements with TNCs authorizing them to do business on the Airport, the Board must amend its existing Ground Transportation Rule. The Board therefore proposes to amend and restate its Rule to, among other things, (1) provide that TNC’s are a separate class of ground transportation provider at the Airport, (2) require TNCs operating at the Airport to comply in all respects with the Act, and (3) authorize TNCs to enter into an operating agreement with the Airport Board, so TNC’s drivers and/or vehicles may pick-up or drop-off passengers or property at the Airport.

Copies of the proposed amended and restated Ground Transportation Rule are on file at the Airport’s administrative office and copies may be obtained from the Executive Director.

COMMENTS:

The Airport Board solicits comments on the proposed amended and restated Ground Transportation Rule. Written comments and opinions should be submitted no later than April 12, 2017. They should be addressed to:

Jim Elwood, A.A.E., Executive Director
Jackson Hole Airport
P.O. Box 159
Jackson, Wyoming 83001

PUBLIC HEARING:

The Airport Board will hold a public hearing on the proposed Ground Transportation Rule on April 19, 2017, commencing at 8:00 a.m. in the Board Room at the Jackson Hole Airport.

FURTHER INFORMATION:
