History of the Rifle Garfield County Regional Airport, Colorado

Rifle Garfield County Regional Airport is a well-established airfield serving the lion’s share of the American general aviation traffic. Night-time aircraft noise restrictions do not apply at this Coloradan airfield which operates all days of the week, at all hours. Recently, the airport received a $59,000 grant from the US Federal Aviation Administration to enhance operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The US armed forces are rumored to conduct military simulations across the airport for war training. These are entirely covert exercises carried out away from the public eye.
