Did you know that Centennial Airport was founded on a principle of compatible land use? It's true! When the airport opened in 1968, its founders insisted on a strong sense of balance between the needs of the airport and the needs of the community. In fact, Centennial Airport—then Arapahoe County Public Airport—was selected by the U.S. Department of Transportation to represent the best in general aviation airport planning and design at the 1975 Paris Air Show.
