The Cheyenne Regional Airport is home to the Wyoming Air National Guard's 153d Airlift Wing and The Wyoming Army National Guard's C Company, 5-195 General Aviation Support Battalion.
153 AW C-130 aircraft routinely conduct formation low altitude navigation and airdrop training in the tri-state area around KCYS. Under VFR, the C-130 may fly as low as 300' AGL at speeds averaging 210 KIAS. In instrument conditions, airdrop training routes are flown at 9,000' MSL. Airdrops in IMC are made from 1,000 to 3,000' AGL (times by NOTAM). These drops are made at either the CYS 270 degree radial at 11 DME or the IIP 120 degree radial at 24 DME. During hours of darkness, crews train on Night Vision Goggle (NVG) procedures. Aircraft may be flying with reduced lighting.
Army National Guard units operate the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, conducting training in the traffic pattern as well as low level operations from the surface to 500' AGL. UH-60 crews also train on NVG procedures. Highest concentrations of UH-60 traffic can be expected in the KCYS traffic pattern and in the vicinity of Camp Guernsey airfield (7V6).
Additionally, UH-1N Helicopters of the 90 MW at F.E. Warren AFB frequent the KCYS traffic pattern.
Never assume any of these crews see you and always remember that these aircraft may be in extended formations. If you see one, look for the wingman!
