Boulder, CO Airport Shows Off!

The Boulder Municipal Airport will have an open house on Saturday, May 10th, hosted by Journeys Aviation and C.M.L. Air Limited.

While they may not have any SR-71 Blackbirds at the event (although I’m not certain) you will be able to view new, vintage, sport, antique, and military aircraft.

You can also get in on a professional parachute jump, fly a simulated Spitfire, and you can take rides in a Robinson 44 helicopter or the Pacific Prowler B-25.

If you want to ride in the Pacific Prowler it’ll cost you $325.00 and you need to set that up 72 hours in advance.

You can call Tracey Spence of Journeys Aviation: 303-449-4210; or you can call Chris Lucas of C.M.L. Air Limited: 303-449-1736. Either one of these guys can give you more information or help you with setting up a reservation to fly in the Prowler.

There are other things going on too, the day starts at 6:00 a.m. with a balloon lift east of the Boulder airport terminal building. There’s an Aviation Discovery Seminar given by Terry Barnhart and Flint Whitlock between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Barnhart and Whitlock are co-authors of “Captain Jepp and the Little Black Book”.

From 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. “Severe Weather Spotter” training is offered. This training is given by staff from the local National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). We’re very fortunate to live is such a science- and technology- rich community!

Many of you probably didn’t even know that Boulder had an airport. This is a great time to see what’s going on over there and get some close up looks at not only the local facility but at some really cool aircraft too.

The airport is at 3300 Airport Road. Here’s a Google map link for the airport. If you’re familiar with town, head east on Valmont and just past the Foothills Parkway turn north onto Airport Road right across from Valmont City Park.
