2018 Airport Tour Schedule

Guided tours of Centennial Airport are offered, free of charge, as part of the airport’s public outreach program. Tours are focused on the airport's rich history in Arapahoe County, economic impact, aerospace and aviation education.  

Tours run March through October to avoid inclimate weather.

Tours are conducted in English.

Seating for each tour is limited to 14 persons. 

Groups specifically interested in viewing war birds and antique aircraft should consider an alternate venue, such as Wings Over the Rockies Museum.  

Airport tours do not include visits to the Air Traffic Control Tower, private hangars, nor do they include meals at the restaurant .

Public Tours

Public tours are offered two to three times per month, during regular business hours, unless specified.

Public tours are conducted on a "first come, first served basis." 

Visitors are asked to wear comfortable shoes, dress appropriately for the weather and be able to negotiate some stairs and board a small tour bus.

Individuals with special needs should contact the airport PRIOR to booking a seat, at 303-790-0598 for assistance.

Children must be 6 years old, no exceptions.

Tickets are required.

To ensure equal opportunities for all, we ask that returning groups and clubs, limit their group tours to once per year.

Should your schedule change, or the number of individuals in your group change, please follow the instructions on your ticket to cancel your reservation. Wait-listed individuals will appreciate the thoughtfulness.

Tours may be curtailed, postponed or cancelled if weather or operational conditions warrant such action.

Consideration is based upon volunteer availability.

Participants must be 6 years or older to participate, as well as able to board a small tour bus. Groups larger than 14 persons cannot be accommodated for the ramp-side tour. Groups smaller than 14 persons should select a date from the public tour schedule listed below.
