Air Force Base (IATA:
KLSV) is a United
States Air Force base, in Clark
on the northeast side of Las
Vegas. It is also treated as a census-designated
place by the United
States Census for statistical purposes, and so specific demographic
information about residents of the base is compiled. As of 2000,
the base had a population of 8,896. Nellis is the location of the USAF's
Warfare Center of the Air
Combat Command, a major training location for both US and foreign fighter
aircraft pilots. The base is named for William
Harrell Nellis, a Las Vegas resident and P-47
pilot who died in action during the Battle
of the Bulge.
The main base covers approximately 11,300 acres (46 kmē). 62 percent of it is undeveloped, while the remaining area is either paved or contains structures.
The base consists of three
major functional areas.
