Nellis Air Force Base, a part of the United States Air Force's Air Combat Command, is located approximately eight miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. The base itself covers more than 14,000 acres, while the total land area occupied by Nellis and its restricted ranges is about 5,000 square miles. An additional 7,700 miles of airspace north and east of the restricted ranges are also available for military flight operations.
Nellis is a major focal point for advanced combat aviation training. Its mission is accomplished through an array of aircraft, including fighters, bombers, refuelers, and aircraft used for transport, close-air-support, command-and-control and combat search-and-rescue. The Nellis work force of about 14,914 military, civilians and contractors makes it one of the largest single employers in Southern Nevada. The total military population numbers more than 46,500, including family members and military retirees in the area.
Everyone at Nellis plays a vital role in molding its aerial forces into the "toughest kid on the block." The work is hard, the hours are sometimes long and the temperatures soar during summer months. In spite of that, Nellis AFB and the Las Vegas Valley are great places to live and work. Las Vegas has some of the best entertainment and recreation in the world including fishing, water sports, canyons and mountains which are only a short drive away. And nothing can beat the pride of being a member of the busiest air combat base in the world.
