Status of Engagement: Design

The Las Vegas Metroplex effort is in the early stage of the Design Phase. The FAA is assessing the best ways to optimize the airspace and improve procedural efficiencies, while taking into account how these changes will affect you. Using data collected in the Study Phase, the Metroplex Program Team will re-design flight paths and update current procedures to increase efficiency and improve operations in your area.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) held three public information workshops in April 2017 in the Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas communities. These workshops were intended to increase your awareness about the ongoing efforts and allow an opportunity to provide feedback. If you were unable to attend in person, please review the information on this website and use the online submission method by clicking on the "Submit Your Comments" link. The comment period will be open through May 27, 2017. The FAA will consider all feedback received as they initiate the design process. This represents the first of three formal opportunities that you have to share your input. Once the team has procedure designs developed there will be another series of public information workshops to be held in the spring of 2018. During these events you will be able to see the paths and intended altitudes aircraft will fly in these preliminary designs. They are considered preliminary for several reasons, the most important is to allow the community to provide feedback and add a level of transparency for the community earlier in the process. We recommend you visit this website for the most up-to-date information and status of the engagement.

As development progresses on this effort, we will update this page with details from past and upcoming meetings, and provide status information of this Metroplex effort in your community. For more information on the Las Vegas Metroplex, visit the links below.
