Sundance Man Named to Wyoming Aviation Hall of Fame

Robert Gose (Wyoming Department of Transportation)

Robert Gose of Sundance has been named the 2010 inductee into the Wyoming Aviation Hall of Fame for his accomplishments in the Air Force and the aeronautical and aerospace industries in Wyoming and nationally. Wyoming Aviation Hall of Fame President John Waggener called Gose’s nomination one of the most compelling considered for induction since the hall of fame was created in 1995 under the auspices of the Wyoming Aeronautics Commission.

After studying for one year at the University of Wyoming, Gose joined the United States Army Air Force in the summer of 1942. He became a flight instructor at Randolph Field near San Antonio. Later he was assigned to a B-24 group as a bomber pilot, and flew combat missions over Germany. After the war, he served in the reserves as an instructor pilot in Cheyenne and at Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma. During the Korean War, he was stationed at the Wright Air Development Center in Ohio as an instructor and test pilot, and was responsible for managing Air Force advanced developments in rocketry. He had returned to UW after World War II, and helped the College of Engineering establish a flight training program at the Laramie Airport. The aeronautical engineering degree he earned from UW in 1947, along with a master’s in jet propulsion engineering from California Institute of Technology in 1955, served him well in the aeronautical and aerospace industries.
