JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) was recognized with two awards at the Wyoming Aeronautics Coalition (WAC) Conference held last week in Pinedale.
Michelle Anderson received the Aviation Professional of the Year award. This award recognizes airport staff’s accomplishments that have shown exceptional commitment to the industry.
The Airport also received the Project of the Year award in recognition of the runway project this spring.
Jim Elwood, Executive Director of Jackson Hole Airport, told Buckrail in June how the Airport planned for the project’s success.
“On the runway project we broke every stage down into four-hour blocks,” said Jackson Hole Airport Executive Director Jim Elwood. “So four hours, 24 hours a day, seven days a week to make sure we were hitting the objectives to make sure we could be here today with an open airport.”
Since 1976 the WAC has represented the interests of Wyoming’s airports and airport operators to commercial, state and federal agencies. They monitor and weigh in whenever necessary on proposed and pending legislation in both the state legislature and the U.S. Congress.
