- St. Robert Area
The Waynesville - St. Robert - Fort Leonard Wood area
has many assets that make this a great place to live,
work and raise a family. The Maneuver Support Center and
Fort Leonard Wood makes this a destination of choice for
tens of thousands of visitors each year. The natural beauty
of the Ozarks makes this a wonderful place to call home.
Our schools are second to none, and our friendly and hard
working people pull it all together to make this a place
ripe for development.
Another asset that makes this a great area to develop
is the Waynesville - St. Robert Regional Airport on Fort
Leonard Wood. Fort Leonard Wood has always had an airport,
and has had commercial air service for decades, but the
airport has evolved to a whole new level over the past
Commercial service has been taken over by Great Lakes
Airlines, a commuter airline carrying tens of thousands
of passengers each month among dozens of cities in the
upper Midwest, central and northern plains, and the southwest.
Great Lakes provides three flights each direction each
weekday to and from St. Louis and Kansas City. Great Lakes
also provides one flights each way on Saturday and Sunday
to both Kansas City and St. Louis. This frequency makes
it a lot easier for people to fly commercial into or out
of Fort Leonard Wood, saving a long drive and dealing
with St. Louis or Kansa City traffic.
The biggest change has been the creation of the joint
use airport, known as the Waynesville - St. Robert Regional
Airport. With all of the military airports across the
country, only 22 are joint use airports, making ours a
very unique airport. Joint use status allows private aircraft
to land, park, and receive services at the airport. Hangars
have recently been built that offer storage and protection
for up to 16 aircraft. Because the Waynesville - St. Robert
Regional Airport is capable of instrument aided landing,
visitors can land during inclement weather - we are the
only airport in a 51 mile radius that offers this capability.
The cities are working to continually expand the capabilities
of the fixed base operations (FBO), making our airport
the airport of choice for recreational and business travelers
