Pueblo Memorial Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located five miles (8 km) east of the central business district of Pueblo, a city in Pueblo County, Colorado, United States. It is mostly used for general aviation, but is also served by one commercial airline. The Pueblo Airport is a popular starting point for the growing population of cyclists in the city. Service is subsidized by the Essential Air Service program.

Pueblo Memorial Airport is also home to the United States Air Force's Initial Flight Screening (IFS) program of the Air Education and Training Command (AETC), which began operations on 1 October 2006. Doss Aviation, under contract with the USAF, will conduct flight screening for between 1300 and 1700 USAF 2nd Lieutenants annually. As the gateway to USAF Aviation, Doss will provide initial flying training allowing students to successfully transition to Undergraduate Flying Training (Pilot and Combat Systems Officer) at one of several Air Force bases throughout the United States. The 45 acre (182108.5 m2) IFS campus is located immediately adjacent to the Pueblo Memorial Airport, Pueblo, Colorado. See #4 on the bottom for reference.
