The Denver South region boasts many crown jewels. One of the brightest is Centennial Airport.

Even many people on Colorado’s front range don’t realize that the 2nd busiest general aviation airport in the country—may be even closer than DEN. But the Centennial Airport is more than just runways and hangars, it is also an economic driver, a hub of cutting-edge innovation and R&D, and a partner in regional healthcare and public safety response.

To better tell the story of this unique regional asset, we are launching a new video series featuring airport Executive Director, Robert Olislagers, to explore the many roles Centennial Airport plays in Denver South.

In part one, we dive into the economic role of the airport. Being located in the heart of Denver South with easy access to 1-25, C-470, and 225, the ease and speed of travel throughout the country and internationally is unparalleled. Saving time is key in business and especially in Colorado, where extra time means opportunity do more of what you love in the great outdoors. In fact, multiple corporations in the region maintain hangars at the airport for expedient travel.

In part two, Robert shares his perspective on the importance of regional collaboration and what makes the region successful. Partnerships are key to running smoothly and plays a large role in the infrastructure of the area.

With companies like Boom Supersonic, Bye Aerospace, and Sierra Nevada Corporation reinventing air—and space—travel, the sky literally is no longer the limit. The healthcare industry is also highlighted and shows the importance of a central location to organizations like Flight for Life and Sky Ridge Medical Center, where saving time means saving lives.
