The B-17 Liberty Belle is coming to Metro Airport

Come visit the B-17 “Liberty Belle” and the newly restored Curtiss P-40E “Warhawk” this Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th. These war birds will be stationed at Denver Air Center, located at 11705 Airport Way, in Broomfield (call 303-466-2336 for directions). Flights on the B-17 are $430.00 and can be scheduled by calling 918-340-0243. The Liberty Belle usually flies between 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. each day with ground tours after the flights. For more information visit the Liberty Foundation website at

The B-17 was built by the Boeing Aircraft Company beginning in 1934. The first flight of the aircraft took place on July 28th, 1935. It became known as the “Flying Fortress” due to it extensive defensive firepower. The B-17 is the most famous bomber of World War II. Today, fewer than 100 B-17 airframes exist and less than 15 of Boeings famous bombers can still take to the sky.

The P-40 is one of the most recognized fighters of World War II. It was the primary aircraft used by the American Volunteer Group the “Flying Tigers”. The Liberty Foundation’s P-40 has been modified to allow individuals the unique opportunity of riding in this classic aircraft. Get a sense of what it was like for the “Flying Tigers”. Twenty minute rides are available for $950. Longer flights are available upon request.


Noise Update

In an effort to better serve the surrounding communities with noise issues, the Airport has updated the noise hotline system to receive all complaints (both audio and text) via e-mail. This new method for receiving complaints will provide a more effective and efficient way to share the information received from concerned neighbors.

As complaints are received they will be recorded into the noise complaint log, if applicable it will then be forwarded to the most appropriate organizations on the Airport. For example, a training helicopter complaint will be forwarded to the helicopter flight clubs. The Airport will continue to post the noise concerns quarterly on the webpage in a statistical format.

The Airport appreciates all efforts made to help with noise mitigation on and around the surrounding communities. Please contact Chris Nicholas (303) 271-4870 with any questions concerns or comments regarding this program.


Notice for RNAV Scoping Meetings

Federal Aviation Administration RNAV and RNP Procedures at Denver International Airport, Centennial Airport and Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport Public Scoping Meetings for Initiation of Environmental Assessment

As part of its effort to achieve national Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) goals, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is developing new flight routes and procedures in the Denver Metro Area. NextGen, the FAA’s plan to modernize the National Airspace System (NAS) through 2025, will use satellite-based navigation to allow aircraft to fly more direct routes and navigate around inclement weather with the intent to increase airspace capacity and reduce delays. Specifically, the FAA proposes to implement new Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) flight routes and procedures in the airspace surrounding Denver International Airport and two satellite airports, Centennial Airport and Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. The FAA is working with airport sponsors, airlines, Federal and state park agencies and other stakeholders on routes and procedures that will improve the safety, efficiency, and capacity of the airspace in the Denver area. The FAA is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) to assess the potential impacts of this action in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Public scoping meetings are being held to initiate the EA process. Although public scoping meetings are not a requirement when conducting an EA (40 CFR 1501.7), the FAA considers an open public process to be an important component of this project. Three public scoping meetings will be held from 5 until 8 PM at the following locations:

    • March 8, 2011: Denver Marriott South at Park Meadows (10345 Park Meadows Drive, Littleton, CO)

    • March 9, 2011: Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport, Mt. Evans Conference Room (11755 Airport Way Broomfield, CO)

    • March 10, 2011: Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport (15500 E. 40th Avenue, Denver, CO)

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION OR SPECIAL NEEDS CONTACT: Bob Twedt; telephone number (303) 342-1571; fax number (303) 342-1550; email:

Tenant Operation Advisory

Operations Summary for use during the 2010 Rocky Mountain Regional Fly-In and Colorado Sport International Air Show
Valid August 26-30, 2010

This advisory neither replaces nor supersedes the Airport Operations Plan, FAA operations guidance including the FAR’s, AIM, NOTAMS, or Advisory Circulars, etc.

As part of the agreement between Colorado Sport Aviation, Inc. (CSA) and Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (RMMA), operations during the event are to continue, as much as possible, on a normal basis for base customers, businesses, tenants and transient traffic. It is recognized that although every effort is made to keep the operations “Normal” there will be some major operational exceptions prior to, during and following the event. The goal for CSA is to promote RMMA and its’ stakeholders to the local community by hosting a Regional Fly-In and Air Show. RMMA’s goal, in return, is to accommodate CSA’s mission and allow modified operations for the same purpose. Below is a summary of these operational modifications.

Transient Aircraft Operations will not be affected aside from airspace restriction in place for the air show. Transient Pilots should review all NOTAMS and TFR’s and should receive a thorough preflight or in flight briefing from Flight Service. Priority handling will be provided to inbound Emergency Aircraft and inbound or outbound Medi-vac Flights ONLY!

All based customers operating at RMMA during the period should check the NOTAM’s for the latest updates and should receive a thorough preflight briefing from Flight Service. Operations will be allowed during the time periods between air space closures.

Normal Tenant Operations during the period may be restricted and/or prohibited. This document will detail some of these restrictions however you should work with Airport Operations personnel if there is any doubt to the procedures in place.

Aircraft Ground Operations:
Beginning Thursday August 26, 2010 Runway 2/20 will be closed to landing and departing aircraft. Taxiway’s Bravo and Charlie, connectors B-2, and B-3 and Runway 2/20 North of Alpha Taxiway will become Non-Movement Areas. On Friday August 27, 2010 Taxiway Alpha will become a Non-Movement area. The FAA Ground controller will provide advisories to all inbound and outbound aircraft in their designated areas. The Pilot will be advised to monitor Ramp Tower for Parking or FAA Tower for departure.

The PILOT-IN-COMMAND has full responsibility for the safe operation of his/her aircraft in designated Non-Movement areas. Ground control is still available to help resolve conflicts and provide taxi assistance.

Ramp Tower:
CSA and FAA will staff and operate a “Ramp Tower” at the intersection of Alpha and Runway 2/20 from Friday August 27, 2010 through Sunday August 29, 2010. The ramp tower will be staffed by competent and knowledgeable individuals who volunteer their time to help move fly-in traffic in a safe and efficient manner. The ramp tower is tasked with assisting arriving and departing aircraft to and from the designated event parking areas. Inbound aircraft will be advised to monitor ramp tower for movement in their designated area. Outbound aircraft, including those based in the designated event areas will contact ramp tower for taxi instructions to depart the parking areas north of Alpha. The ramp tower is in direct communications with the FAA control tower and will hand off outbound traffic to the FAA Ground Controller once the aircraft leaves their area.

Airborne Operations:
During the event all arriving and departing VFR aircraft are required to adhere to the published special arrival and departure procedures as outlined in the NOTAM. This NOTAM can be found on the event website at VFR arrivals are expected to see and avoid all other airborne traffic in the area. IFR arrivals and Departures should utilize normal procedures.

Tenant Operations:
Tenants operating aircraft during the event should be aware of the high number of non-base aircraft that will be operating both on the ground and in the air. Provide every courtesy to these aircraft and when in doubt yield the right of way to them. This is your airport and you are an ambassador. CSA has made every attempt to provide based customers with access to the runway so they can operate during the event. Normal operations will allow outbound traffic flow on Taxiway Bravo and inbound traffic flow on Taxiway Charlie.

Tenant Access:
RMMA and many based customers have given up space to accommodate this event. Much of this space is frequently used by tenants, pilots and students for their day to day needs. During the event however, much of this area has been restricted. Access is by paid admission only. If you are a tenant with a vendor booth at the event it is imperative that you utilize the designated entry and exit points for Vendors. This point is located on the North end of the Maintenance building and is staffed by CSA volunteers. Tenants have unrestricted access to their place of business or hangar. However, you should be advised that access to those areas may be rerouted or may be restricted and managed by volunteers tasked with keeping the general public out of YOUR areas. Please be courteous and patient with these volunteers. They are only doing their job. Should any conflicts arise please contact airport operations personnel.

Personal Vehicles and Pedestrian Access:
Personal vehicles such as Golf Carts, Motor Scooters, Gators, etc. are not allowed in the event area without the express written consent of both CSA and RMMA. If access is required for your business please contact Airport Operations for information.

Tenant Pedestrian access to the event is prohibited at all areas except at one of the two main gates. These gates are located on either side of Hangar B-4 (Journeys). Pedestrian traffic is specifically prohibited between the East Hangars and the terminal building on the ramp.
Denver Air Center will be operational during this event. Violation of any of these restrictions could result in a loss of your airport access privileges.
CSA volunteers and the Jefferson County Sheriff will be on site to monitor the event perimeter. Please be aware that these volunteers do not know who you are and will advise authorities of your presence.

Hangar Events:
Hangar events are not restricted or prohibited during the event. The tenant of record will be fully responsible for the behavior and conduct of their guests and will comply with all airport rules governing the use of their hangar.

This event is your opportunity to help support and promote RMMA and the future success and development of the airport. Please do your part to help make the 2010 Fly-In and Air Show a complete success by learning and adhering to the operational changes for the event. If you have any questions please contact Airport Operation for further information or explanation.
