Davenport Municipal Airport (IATA: DVNICAO: KDVNFAA LID: DVN) is a general aviation airport located about 7 miles (11 km) north of downtown Davenport, a city in Scott County, Iowa, United States. The airport, which dates back from 1948, has also been home to the Quad City Air Show since 1987. The air show occurs the last weekend of June every year.

The fixed base operation is run by Carver Aero Inc. The airport has two runways (3-21 and 15-33) and a 12,000-square-foot (1,100 m2) hangar. Most of the air traffic in and out of Davenport Municipal is regional, consisting mainly of single-prop and twin-prop aircraft. However, some smaller private jets also utilize the airport for longer trips to other destinations around the United States. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration operates the Quad Cities National Weather Service office from Davenport Municipal Airport. Also the U.S. Army Iowa National Guard 1/109th Aviation Battalion Maintains an Armory with 3-4 CH-47 Chinook Helicopters.
