experience, the North Las Vegas Airport is
situated at the north end of Las Vegas (opposite the
southern-sitting McCarran International Airport).
This airport is much smaller, and also open to the
public. It is a great place for smaller aircraft,
especially for those who fly their own planes.
North Las Vegas Airport features
an outdoor observation deck. It is a fun place to
watch the airplanes. However, shade is in short supply.
During the hot summer months the observation deck
may not be particularly comfortable. But it is a pleasant
experience the rest of the year. North Las Vegas Airport

features a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu,
with traditional German dishes served after 5 p.m.
