Local Airspace Considerations

standard departure procedures

KVGT is a towered Class "D" airport (tower closed at 2300 hrs). We are tucked under KLAS Class "B" which must be avoided or request "Flight Following" from ground control upon departure (recommended).

best way to get flight following

Contact ground on 121.7 upon initial contact and request flight following. They will coordinate with proper authorities and provide heading, frequency, and squawk code.

local reporting points

Lone Mountain and Red Rock and Red Rock Casino to the west, Santa Fe Casino on final approach to rwy 12

typical TFR considerations

Please become familiar with several published KLAS Class "B" transitions. Easy way is to request "Flight Following" for approach control. They will hold your hand.
