In the fall of 2016, the FAA will kick-off a project to redesign airspace, introduce new Performance Based Navigation (PBN) procedures, and make use of Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) to make the Las Vegas Metroplex airspace more efficient with improved access to its airports. Some of the airports in the focus area include: Henderson Executive (HND), McCarran International (LAS), and North Las Vegas (VGT). The information below may also include data from nearby airports outside of the Las Vegas Metroplex (please see the Reference Guide for additional information).

All results are reported by Fiscal Year (FY), October 1 — September 30.

$7.5 Million

Value of Fuel Savings

2.6 Million Gallons

Fuel Savings

24.8 Thousand Metric Tons

Carbon Savings

These are annual benefits expected to accrue upon completion of the NextGen near-term procedural improvements implemented by the FAA's Metroplex program. They are based on the FAA's preliminary assessment of proposed airspace improvements compared to operations in a year before any improvements were made. The value of the projected fuel savings is based on a $2.85 per gallon rate. The data estimates are current as of March 2016.
