MDAC logoThe Metro Denver Aviation Coalition (MDAC) is an industry affiliate of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation dedicated to the continued growth and development of Metro Denver's aviation industry. MDAC is an evolution of the former DIA Leadership Committee to reflect an expanded focus that targets three key areas:

  • Denver International Airport (DEN)
  • Metro Denver's three reliever airports (Centennial, Front Range, and Rocky Mountain Metropolitan), and the region’s five general aviation airports
  • Promoting public policy conducive to the continued growth and success of the region’s aviation industry

MDAC members provide public and private sector advocacy and support in such areas as job growth planning, route expansion and retention, infrastructure development, and airport on site and adjacent development.

MDAC also informs decision makers and the public about the importance of maximizing the economic potential of aviation and Colorado's many assets in this industry.
