Santa Plans Departure from North Pole in Cessna 172!

It’s that time of year again! We just received word that Santa is planning a flight for Saturday, December 13, for his 6th annual appearance at the Cheyenne Regional Airport! It’s a long trip to Cheyenne from the North Pole, but Mrs. Claus assured FAA safety inspectors that she’ll make sure Santa meets all rest requirements.

Santa will fly his trusty Cessna 172 instead of his sleigh this time because the reindeer are busy at the peak of their training. The reindeer’s strength and conditioning coach, Speedy Von Gallop stated, “I’ve seen a great amount of improvement this year on the physical shape of our sleigh team, but we’re just not quite up to par yet. A few more laps around the world and we should be good to go.”

As always, Santa is thrilled to have the opportunity to visit the children in Cheyenne, and hopes to see every boy and girl there at the airport! He also wanted to remind the children to bring their cameras, present requests, and appetites! After all, Santa loves sharing some hot chocolate and cookies with all the children.

The Airport will be holding the event from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Passenger Holding Area, which can be accessed from the Airport Terminal. Peaks Café will provide delicious refreshments and snacks for everyone. Hope to see you there!

Saturday, December 8 - Santa is making his 4th annual appearance at the Cheyenne Regional Airport!

It’s that time of year again! Santa’s Public Relations team has confirmed Santa will make an appearance at Cheyenne Regional Airport Saturday, December 8, 3 p.m.-5 p.m.

As always, Santa loves to visit well-behaved children all over the world, but his rep. said, “Santa is exceptionally excited to visit the wonderful boys and girls of the Cheyenne community.”

Santa is promoting courtesy and graciousness to all children, but his new reindeer handler, Elfonzo Antlers also wants to remind children not to forget the “milk and cookies on December 24th. It keeps Santa in a jolly mood and the reindeer respond well to his belly full of goodies.”

Because Santa’s reindeer need to conserve their energy for Christmas Eve, Rudolph and the gang will be resting up at the North Pole while Santa cruises into the airport in his Cessna 172. The children will be able to watch as Santa lands and taxis to the terminal. He will then be available for pictures, to share hot cocoa with the children, and most importantly, take present requests!  

Tune-in to KFBC radio; The Boss to hear live coverage of the event if you must miss it.
As with the previous years, the Airport will be holding the event in the passenger holding area, referred to as “Concourse A.” Peaks Café II will provide refreshments and snacks. Hope to see you there!
