Ride-the-Ramp Tour Program

Want to learn more about the nation's second-busiest general aviation airport? Then join us for a chat and a tour of the airfield! There's always something exciting at Centennial Airport and we'd love to share our story with you. 


Airport Tours

Centennial's Ride-the-Ramp tour is a pre-scheduled historical presentation about Centennial Airport, its connection with the community, as well as the tremendous economic contributions the airport brings to the area. It gives participants a unique opportunity to better understand general aviation and explore career opportunities.

Tours typically last 90 minutes. 

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. 

Tour participants MUST BE 6 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER and be accompanied by a parent or chaperone, and able to sit quietly during the presentation.
For a more interactive experience, we suggest visiting the Wings Exploration of Flight Center, located on the south side of Centennial Airport. It is far better suited for young curious minds—and yes, you can still see the airplanes.

Seating is limited to 14 persons.

Tours run Wednesdays March 25 through October 7 to avoid inclimate weather. The airport reserves the right to cancel tours based on weather conditions, safety concerns, and airport operational needs.

  • Ride-the-Ramp tours do not include visits to warbirds or to private hangars.
  • Ride-the-Ramp tours do not include lunch at the restaurant.
  • Ride-the-Ramp tours do not include visits to the air traffic control tower.
  • Participants should be able to negotiate some steps and/or be able to board a small bus with minimal assistance. Those with special accommodations needs should contact the airport first so we may better serve you.
  • Ride-the-Ramp tour dates are published as volunteer tour guides are available.
