FAA to Hold Workshops for Las Vegas Metroplex Project

This post was originally published on this site

Las VegasThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will hold three public workshops on April 9, 10 and 11 in and around Las Vegas about proposed airspace improvements over the metropolitan area.

The proposed improvements are part of the FAA’s Las Vegas Metroplex project, which would use cutting-edge satellite navigation to move air traffic more efficiently through the area. The project includes McCarran International Airport, North Las Vegas Airport, Henderson Executive Airport and Nellis Air Force Base. It is one of 11 Metroplex projects nationwide.

While the airspace around Las Vegas is very safe, its not as efficient as it could be. The FAA proposes to address the inefficiencies by implementing new routes that are more direct, automatically separated from each other, and have efficient climb and descent profiles. The potential benefits of these routes can include reductions in pilot-controller communications, miles flown, fuel burn and CO2 emissions.

The FAA has drafted preliminary designs for new satellite-based routes for the Las Vegas area. The upcoming workshops will feature informational videos and poster boards that show existing and proposed routes and explain the inefficiencies in the current system. FAA representatives will be available to answer questions, and people can submit written comments at the workshops and online for 30 days afterward.

The workshops will run from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. They will be an open-house format, where people can attend any time during the posted times to learn about the project. Free parking will be available at all locations.

The workshop dates and locations are as follows:

Tuesday, April 9
Henderson Executive Airport
3500 Executive Terminal Dr.
Henderson, NV 89052
North/South Meeting Rooms

Wednesday, April 10
North Las Vegas Airport
2730 Airport Dr.
North Las Vegas, NV 89032
Grand Canyon Conference Room

Thursday, April 11
Clark County Government Center
500 S Grand Central Pkwy
Las Vegas, NV 89115
Pueblo Room

The FAA will consider all applicable comments we receive at the workshops and during the comment period in developing the Draft Environmental Assessement (EA) for the Las Vegas Metroplex project. When the FAA completes the Draft EA, the agency will hold additional workshops so people can commment on that document.

The FAA will consider all applicable comments from the Draft EA workshops and associated public comment period in developing the final EA for the project. The FAA will conduct additional workshops to inform the public about any final routes.
