In 2017, the Town approached WASCO to assist in identifying solutions for airport management and technical services to support the ongoing governance, administration, and continuous development of airport operations.
WASCO appointed a qualified airport manager based primarily in Winnipeg who travels on-site as required to support the operation. The airport ownership, operation, and staffing, with the exception of the airport manager, remains under The Town of The Pas.
This hybrid solution provides experienced airport management services through a long-term services contract that supplments local resources while maintaining local control of the airport throught the Town and Council.
