FAQ's

How do I open my own airport?

When opening an airport in Colorado there are some steps that must be followed. First you must contact the FAA and fill out and submit a 7480-1 form. The following link will provide some more information on that process. http://www.faa.gov/airports/engineering/open_close_airport/

After the FAA has been contacted, the next step is to contact your local zoning authority. In most cases this will be the county, they will provide any local land use restrictions that might exist.

Although the Colorado Division of Aeronautics is a non regulatory agency and has no regulations to follow, it is important that all FAA regulations and local rules are followed. Please contact the Division of Aeronautics at 303-261-4418 with any additional questions.
