Established and incorporated within the Nevada Department of Transportation Planning Division, the Aviation Planning Section is responsible for helping ensure that Nevada's general aviation public-use and private-use airports meet applicable safety requirements and provide maximum utility to their communities and the flying public. Through annual safety inspections and education programs, the NDOT Aviation Section facilitates the establishment of a viable, balanced and integrated system of aviation facilities. NDOT Aviation also prepares and administers the State Airport Systems Plan. This plan identifies the aeronautical role of existing and recommended airports. It provides a comprehensive planning framework, consistent with state goals and objectives for economic development, transportation, land use, and the environment. It incorporates metropolitan regional airport system planning and provides direction for airport master planning. The State Airport Systems Plan also serves as the Nevada component of the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). NDOT Aviation administers the Nevada State Fund for Aviation, a matching grant program designed to assist rural airports with their FAA projects.

The health and safety of our team and fellow Nevadans is top priority. In accordance with Gov. Steve Sisolak’s order for state offices to transition to online and over-the-phone service, NDOT has temporarily suspended in-person services and transitioned them on-line to help reduce potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We look forward to serving you here!
