NBAA, Las Vegas-Area Members Help Bring New Route to Western Region

Updated June 15, 2009

On July 2, 2009, the FAA will implement a new jet route from San Diego International Airport (SAN) to Henderson Executive Airport (HND) near Las Vegas, NV available to general aviation. NBAA and Las Vegas-based Members have worked for the past year with the Las Vegas and Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) facilities and Los Angeles Center to make this route available. This route will take Henderson-bound jet aircraft off of the Las Vegas McCarran International (LAS) arrival routes, saving operators time and distance; will reduce workload for air traffic controllers; and will increase capacity for the airport. NBAA anticipates that soon, aircraft departing from airports across the San Diego area and as far north as John Wayne Orange County (SNA) could be offered the new route.

The routing for jets will be: JLI.V514.ZELMA..USCUP..TILOE..HAKID..HND

Arrivals will be descended to cross Tiloe (approximately two miles south of the L30 boundary) at 11,000 with TRACON control.
