Centennial Airport is located in Dove Valley, an unincorporated portion of Arapahoe County near Denver, Colorado. The airport’s runways also extend into neighboring Douglas County. The airport opened on May 12, 1967 as Arapahoe County Airport, and was renamed on July 13, 1984. The name reflects Colorado’s admission to the Union as the 38th state in 1876, the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence.

In 1985, a new control tower was built. It is an international airport with continuous U.S. Customs services and ranks as one of the busiest general aviation airports in the United States in terms of take offs and landings, with average of 874 operations per day. It is continuously served by a Federal Aviation Administration control tower and associated air traffic control services, as well as U.S. Customs. It has three runways — 17/35 Left and Right, and 10/28. Runway 35R has a Category I Instrument Approach.
