FAAʼs Safety Plan for Super Bowl LVIII
Dates & Location
February 7-12, 2024
Las Vegas, NV
Pilots should anticipate a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in the Las Vegas area on Sunday, February 11, 2024. Typical TFRs limit the availability of certain operations, including glider operations, flight training, and unmanned aerial system (UAS) operations. Specific procedures described on this website and/or contained in an associated Notices To Air Missions (NOTAMs) may be revised or unavailable at the time of the event, and access to some airports may be restricted. Pilots are encouraged to check NOTAMs frequently to confirm they have the most current information.
TFR information is published by FDC NOTAMs, normally 3 to 5 days prior to the event. TFR NOTAMs and graphics are available at the FAA TFR website.
Prepare for your flight. Some of the airports listed below include videos from FAA’s “From the Flight Deck” series. These videos provide pilots with actual runway approach and airport taxiway footage, captured with cockpit mounted cameras, combined with diagrams and visual graphics to clearly identify hot spots and other safety-sensitive items.

During periods of heavy demand, pilots should anticipate Traffic Management Initiatives including, but not limited to, reroute, miles-in-trail, altitude restriction, ground stop, and Ground Delay Programs.
When a Ground Delay Program (GDP) is in effect, aircraft must depart within 5 minutes of their assigned Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT). If unable, pilots must advise ATC and request a new EDCT assignment.
Traffic Management Initiatives are designed to provide equitable access to airports and airspace. To maintain program integrity and minimize delays, airborne changes of destination to area airports will not be accepted, except for genuine emergencies.
VFR arrivals may expect lengthy delays and potential holding during peak traffic periods. VFR advisory service within the airspace of Las Vegas TRACON (L30), Las Vegas Tower (LAS), Henderson Tower (HND), North Las Vegas Tower (VGT) and Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZLT) will be on a workload-permitting basis.
File flight plans at least 6 hours, but not more than 24 hours, prior to the proposed time of departure. This is required to ensure Traffic Management Initiatives (TMI) reflect authentic demand. If a TMI is necessary, filing early may minimize your assigned delay. Duplicate flight plans (same time/call sign) to the same airport or multiple airport destinations are subject to removal from the system and may result in increased delays.
Air files and IFR pick-ups will not be accepted from airborne flights to/from airports listed on this website and/or in the associated NOTAMs, except for genuine emergencies.
Training flights and student solo cross-country flights are highly discouraged in the Las Vegas metro area. Practice approaches, touch-and-go landings, and other training operations may be limited or suspended.
A reservation program to facilitate ATC handling and ground services will be in effect at participating Nevada airports. Reservations are administered by local Fixed Base Operators (FBOs). Contact the FBO at your Las Vegas destination for reservations and additional information.
All pilots/operators are strongly encouraged to contact their servicing FBO prior to departure, to ensure availability for both overnight parking and passenger pickup/drop-off.
Real time flight delay, airport status, and program information is available at nasstatus.faa.gov/.
