Transportation

The Fort Leonard Wood region has one of the best locations in the state. We are centrally located with direct access to Interstate 44, which runs across (east to west) the state of Missouri. Not only are we able to get to large cities in one to two hours, but we can also fly there from the Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport located on Fort Leonard Wood. Commuter or charter air travel from Fort Leonard Wood can get you anywhere in the country without the hassle of a long drive, expensive parking, and busy airports.

The SOP is constantly working with military officials and local and state government officials to improve the Waynesville-St. Robert Airport. We provide regular briefings to community leaders and citizens, updates to our elected officials, and at our 2014 Annual Meeting we hosted a special breakout session that focused on the future of air transportation in our region.

Starting in February of 2017, the SOP has taken the lead on marketing the airport to potential passengers. Since the implementation of our strategic marketing plan, the airport has seen increases in enplanements each month. 

February: 17.2% increase
March: 2.3% increase
April: 1% increase
May: 7.1% increase
June: 8.9% increase
July: 10.3% increase
August: 16.4% increase
September: 18.8% increase
