GateOne will take over as the operator of the lone FBO at Northeast Wyoming Regional from July 1. The location, which will mark the company’s fourth facility and its first in Wyoming, was awarded to GateOne after it was selected over five other competitors in an RFP process. It will set up shop as the inaugural FBO in KGCC’s newly-built $3.3M GA terminal.
The 5,500-sq-ft contemporary building features a stacked stone exterior with natural wood, oversized windows, and vaulted ceilings. Among the amenities at the Avfuel-branded FBO are a passenger lounge, pilot lounge, snooze room, 12-seat conference room, and flight-planning area. The facility also has nearly 30,000 sq ft of hangar space capable of sheltering ultra-long-range jets.
“We plan to offer maintenance for aircraft from single engines to turboprops and possibly jets,” said GateOne CEO Thomas Mathew. “We’ll also look at the needs of the local and transient communities and see if we need to build more hangars to attract both customer segments.” Mathew further expects to add a flight school and a small aircraft charter division at the location.
GateOne operates additional facilities at Stinson Municipal Airport (KSSF) in San Antonio, Texas; Utah’s Cedar City Regional Airport (KCDC); and as Chandler Air Service at Chandler Municipal Airport (KCHD) in Arizona.
