Representing the interests of all public use airports in Iowa

About IPAA

The Iowa Public Airports Association (IPAA) was founded in 1984, as an outgrowth of the Iowa Airport Executives Association. Our membership is open to all public use airports, as well as associates in the state with an interest in aviation in Iowa.

IPAA supports airport professionals as they advocate for Iowa's public use airports. Activities include legislative advocacy, education, and collaboration within the aviation community. IPAA works closley with the Iowa DOT's Office of Aviation, as well as other aviation stakeholders.
