Welcome to the Iowa Public Airports Association (IPAA). IPAA works hard to earn and maintain support for Iowa’s aviation industry. We provide information to and represent the interests of all of the public-use airports in Iowa.
The more members we have, and the more involved they are, the stronger our voice becomes. I encourage all visitors to this website to support aviation and promote aviation's contributions in Iowa. You won’t regret the time you invest! Thank you for your support, and I look forward to hearing from you on how we can be the best airport association possible.
Save the Date! Don’t miss out - this year’s Iowa Public Airports Association conference is held April 11 – 13, 2017 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in downtown Cedar Rapids.
The conference will be held in the city’s premiere hotel and conference location with a full agenda – including two new features this year!
- Trap Shoot – This networking event has been added for the first day (Tues., April 11) of the conference. The trap shoot will be held at Otter Creek Sports Club in Cedar Rapids.
- Keynote speaker Dan Gable – Iowa’s wrestling legend Dan Gable is a renowned motivational speaker and he will bring his dynamic speaking style to the dinner on Wednesday night (April 12). The dinner will be held at the Signature Flight Support hangar at CID. This is sure to be an entertaining presentation where Gable relates his life experiences and formula for success. Gable compiled an unbelievable record of 182-1 during his prep and college careers. He was undefeated in 64 prep matches and was 118-1 at Iowa State. His only defeat came in the NCAA finals his senior year. Gable was a three-time all-American and three-time Big Eight champion and he set NCAA records in winning and pin streaks.
