Southern Nevada residents may notice increased noise from military aircraft as the Air Force conducts Weapons School Integration, also known as WSINT, from May 29 to June 14.
More than 80 aircraft are scheduled to depart Nellis twice a day and may remain in the air for up to five hours during WSINT. There may be night launches as well to allow air crews to train for nighttime combat operations.
WSINT is the culmination phase of the six-month United States Air Force Weapons School, graduate-level instructor courses that provide the world’s most advanced training in weapons and tactics employment. WSINT provides an opportunity for all Weapons School students to come together and integrate the skills they learned in a realistic environment.
