Perkins Field Reopens After Rehabilitation Project

May 9, 2024 | Aviation, General

Perkins Field, the general aviation airport located in Overton operated by the Clark County Department of Aviation, reopened earlier this month after a seven-month closure for a rehabilitation of the runway, taxiways and ramps.

This work was needed to address the wear that happens with usage and also ensures the highest levels of safety and efficiency for users of the airport for years to come. Completing this project means Perkins Field remains compliant with FAA design standards, keeping it eligible for future federal funding.

Due to its location, Perkins Field is a great spot to support sports activities such as the skydiving business that use the field for landings and takeoffs as well as flight schools. These operations can thrive while not taking away from the precious airspace around LAS, Henderson Executive and North Las Vegas.

The total construction cost of the project was $15.9 million with $8.9 million covered through federal funding. 

The Clark County Aviation System is comprised of five airports: Harry Reid International Airport, Henderson Executive Airport, North Las Vegas Airport, Overton-Perkins Field and Jean Sport Aviation System.
