Front Range Airport

Front Range Airport - History

The Front Range Airport is an incredible example of an airport that continued to grow, built in 1984 with the vision of driving the economy in eastern Adams County by supplying an increase in air cargo and general aviation business. The vision was supplemented by the addition of two 8,000 foot runways, three full precision instrument landing systems(ILS) and ramps on the east side and west side of the airport. Front Range Airport was proud to establish controlled airspace after the opening of the tallest general aviation air traffic control tower in North America in 2005.

Always looking to expand on its 3100 acres of land, Front Range Airport supports local and state governments with the building of a Colorado National Guard armory, as well as the Colorado Department of Transportation Aeronautical Division and Colorado State Patrol office. Front Range Airport stands at the fore front of the future; by maintaining a foothold in the technological development of sub-orbital flight and aerospace research and development.
