Henderson Executive Airport ( IATA: HSH, ICAO: KHND, FAA LID: HND) is a public use government airport located in Henderson, Nevada, 13 miles south of Las Vegas, in Clark County, Nevada. The airport is owned by the Clark County Commission [1] and operated by the Clark County Department of Aviation. The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009-2013 categorized it as a reliever airport. [2] It was originally Sky Harbor Airport, but was renamed in 1996 when the Clark County Commission bought it to be a reliever airport for McCarran International Airport.

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but Henderson Executive Airport is HND to the FAA [1] and HSH to the IATA [3] (which assigned HND to Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan [4]). The airport's ICAO identifier is KHND. [3] [5]


The airport covers 760 acres (310 ha) at an elevation of 2,492 feet (760 m). It has two asphalt runways: 17R/35L is 6,501 by 100 feet (1,982 m × 30 m) and 17L/35R is 5,001 by 75 feet (1,524 m × 23 m). [1]

In the year ending September 30, 2015 the airport had 71,323 aircraft operations, average 195 per day: 86% general aviation, 14% air taxi and <1% military. 252 aircraft were then based at the airport: 81% single-engine, 12% multi-engine, 7% jet and 3% helicopter. [1]

The terminal has car rental, flight school, line service facilities and the Landings Restaurant.
