If you are looking for ways to burn some of your private jet card hours, officials in Wyoming are expecting a surge in private aviation arrivals this August for prime eclipse viewing.
According to local reports, operators from 19 countries, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and Argentina have enquired about flying their planes to Casper-Natrona County International Airport.
“They’ve called me and inquired about coming in and whether I’d be available,” Dan Leatham, the local customs and immigrations officer told the Casper Star-Tribune. “I’ve told them that I am.”
Leatham is the only immigration officer in Wyoming, according to the report, and he says, that allows international flights to land directly in Casper for the path of the total solar eclipse taking place August 21.
