This current view is looking south on Runway 32 toward Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Located in the heart of the Rockies, the Glenwood Springs Municipal Airport is one of the oldest airports in the nation. With a runway length of 3300 feet, we are home to a variety of small General Aviation airplanes and helicopters. Operations are daylight hours only, but we are open 24 hours a day for self-service 100LL and Jet A fueling. Located between the Eagle/Vail, Rifle/Garfield County, and Aspen Airports – you’ll find our location the gateway to your next adventure. Plus, we are only three miles from downtown Glenwood Springs.
Although owned by the City of Glenwood Springs, the airport does not receive City or Federal funding – we operate solely off of fuel sales, tie-down and hangar fees, donations, and the passion of the pilots who call this place home.
The airfield hosts businesses such as a superior aircraft maintenance facility, a sky-diving operation, Emergency Medical Services, high altitude helicopter training, flight instruction, and scenic flights. We also support many services such as fire-fighting contracts, US Fish and Games, Search and Rescue, CDOT, tourism, and many more.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to our airport, please send your name and payment to Friends of the Glenwood Springs Airport, PO Box 1150, Glenwood Springs, CO 81602. Friends of the GWS Airport is a non-profit organization consisting of citizens and business owners who are concerned about the future of the Airport. Your support and input help continue aviation in the Roaring Fork Valley.
