FAA diagram of North Las Vegas Airport

North Las Vegas Airport (IATA: VGT, ICAO: KVGT, FAA LID: VGT) is an airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northwest of the central business district of Las Vegas, in North Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. It is owned by Clark County and operated by the Clark County Department of Aviation.

Known locally as Northtown, it is the second busiest airport in the Las Vegas metro area and the third busiest in Nevada. It is the primary airport in the Las Vegas area for general aviation and scenic tours, allowing McCarran International Airport to focus on commercial flights. North Las Vegas does offer limited regional airline service. Many helicopter operators including the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department use the airport.

The airport is certificated under 14CFR Part 139.

History

The airport opened on December 1, 1941, as Sky Haven Airport. Given the significance of the date, only one of the three founders, Florence Murphy, remained to run the airport.

In 1968, Hughes Tool Company purchased the airport, then called North Las Vegas Air Terminal.
