Supersonic planes could change Las Vegas tourism, expert says

August 20, 2018 – 12:01 pm

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado — Aviation industry leaders attending the 23rd annual Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit got a glimpse of the future Saturday: Boom Supersonic presented a model of a test aircraft expected to lead to the return of speedy intercontinental travel.

And the head of the Colorado-based Boyd Group, aviation expert Mike Boyd, believes the plane could be game-changing for Las Vegas.

“A big chunk of them (Las Vegas visitors) are coming in to spend a lot of money,” Boyd said. “Do you think MGM Grand or Wynn wouldn’t want to charter an airplane like this for their high-rollers? In a New York second.”

Blake Scholl, who designed the aircraft and founded Boom in September 2014, said his airliner would be able to fly from Washington D.C. to London in 3½ hours instead of the more than seven hours it currently takes. San Francisco to Hawaii would take 2½ hours instead of five. Sydney, Australia, to Los Angeles could be completed in just under seven hours instead of just under 15.

Scholl’s whole premise for the 55-passenger airliner he hopes to get off the ground by 2025 is “removing the barriers to experiencing the planet” by transporting people in half the time it currently takes.

Baby boom

At a hangar at Centennial Airport in suburban Denver, early arrivals for the two-day Boyd conference saw a model of the XB-1, the first independently developed supersonic jet — and history’s fastest civil aircraft.

The XB-1 and Boom’s airliner will be flown at Mach 2.2 — 1,451 mph. With an all-business-class cabin and every seat with a large window and next to the center aisle

Scholl said the XB-1, known by company employees as “Baby Boom,” is a two-seat test vehicle that will enable the company to refine its airliner design, ensuring a passenger aircraft which is efficient, reliable and safe.

Parts of the aircraft are being manufactured with lightweight carbon composites in San Diego and transported to Denver for assembly in Boom’s hangar at Centennial Airport.

Raiders Las Vegas stadium is on time and budget, officials say

Updated July 20, 2018 – 12:20 am

Las Vegas stadium work crews are putting the equivalent of about $4 million a day into work at the site, and the project is on time and on budget, Las Vegas Stadium Authority officials said Thursday.

Precast steel is arriving at the site at Interstate 15 and Russell Road this week, and the last grade-level concrete slabs are scheduled to be poured later this month.

More than 500 workers are on the $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat indoor football stadium project due to be completed in time for the 2020 NFL season.

Stadium authority officials and Raiders executives also reported that sales of personal seat licenses — contracts with fans that give them access to purchasing season tickets for Raiders games for 30 years — are going better than expected.

Raiders President Marc Badain said after the meeting that the team is in the second of three phases of PSL sales, with Oakland season ticket holders getting the first crack at mid-level PSLs through mid-August. Las Vegas fans who have placed deposits will be invited to participate next.

PSL costs

PSLs for those seats range from $3,900 to $15,000 per seat.

Club-level and VIP seat PSLs — the most expensive at between $20,000 and $75,000 per seat — were sold between March and May. About 73 percent of those sales went to fans with Nevada addresses. Badain wouldn’t predict what percentage of buyers would be from Nevada in the current sale.

A third tier of sales will occur later in the year for the last PSLs and season tickets.

Stadium Authority Chairman Steve Hill said the successful sales are reflective of the popularity of the team and Las Vegas.

“The combination of the Raiders and Las Vegas is pretty hard to beat,” Hill said after the meeting. “The (Vegas) Golden Knights are giving us a run for our money, and that’s a great thing, too. The Raiders have one of the world’s greatest football brands, and Las Vegas obviously is a brand in and of itself and when you combine those two things, we’re seeing that in the interest in the stadium and sales.”

Hill said he expected PSL sales to be strong.

“I think prices that are out there is what we expected them to be,” Hill said. “We had some conversations both at the (Southern Nevada) Tourism Infrastructure Committee and throughout the Stadium Authority board process where those prices were in alignment of what they are at other stadiums, and the demand is there.”

Golden Knights cap ‘crazy year’ with four wins at NHL Awards

Expansion team honored after reaching Final, uniting city following shooting

by Nicholas J. Cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist
June 20th, 2018

LAS VEGAS — It was the epilogue to the fairy tale of the 2017-18 Vegas Golden Knights.

Three hundred sixty-four days after assembling their first roster at the 2017 NHL Awards and NHL Expansion Draft at T-Mobile Arena, they took center stage at the 2018 NHL Awards presented by Hulu at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Four first responders and four survivors of the mass shooting on the Strip on Oct. 1 stood at one point with four members of the Golden Knights who won awards: general manager George McPhee, coach Gerard Gallant, center William Karlsson and defenseman Deryk Engelland.

The Golden Knights became Las Vegas’ first major league sports team, united the city in the aftermath of Oct. 1, shattered records for first-year teams in the regular season and made the Stanley Cup Final, losing to the Washington Capitals in five games.

“It was a dream season right till Game 5,” Gallant said. “It was an unbelievable year. Obviously nobody expected us to come out of the gate like we did. Nobody expected us to be in the playoffs. We had a great team. We had a great season. Fell a little bit short, but I’ll go home this summer very proud of our group and the organization.”

McPhee won the NHL General Manager of the Year Award a little more than four years after the Capitals fired him as their GM. Though the Golden Knights had more favorable rules than previous expansion teams did, McPhee and his staff took advantage of them and exceeded expectations. They did a masterful job of collecting assets for the long term while building a team for the short term, finding players with upside, speed and character.

“It was really hard for me to believe, to be honest with you,” McPhee said. “Every month, I was like, ‘Boy, is this really happening?’ As I’ve said a number of times, I had my fingers crossed all year hoping it wouldn’t turn to dust. And each week, we kept winning. And then we won a round, and then won another round, and then won another round. And I was like, ‘This is too good to be true. We might win the Stanley Cup.’ And then we didn’t. And then you come back down to earth. But it was just an extraordinary year in all of our lives.”

Gallant won the Jack Adams Award as coach of the year after getting fired as coach of the Florida Panthers in 2016-17, after being a finalist for the award with Florida in 2015-16. He brought together players discarded by other teams by keeping an open mind, putting them in positions to succeed and boosting their confidence. Nick Robone, the UNLV assistant who was shot Oct. 1, was visited by Vegas players in the hospital and got to break down video with Gallant and his staff as he recovered, made the announcement.

Watch NASCAR at Las Vegas: Odds, start time, TV schedule, live stream, standings

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads out west to Las Vegas on Sunday for the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube, the third race of the 2018 season. Austin Dillon and Kevin Harvick have already clinched their playoff spots, but who’s going to hit it big in Vegas?

One driver with high hopes of clinching a spot Sunday is 2017 Cup champ and defending track winner Martin Truex Jr. Not only did Truex win the race last year, but he swept all three stages as well. He’s the only driver ever to do it, and a repeat performance would help build on his current position of seventh in the standings.

“No question we had some special moments in Las Vegas last year,” Truex said, via a NASCAR press release. “The victory was a confidence booster to our team. It not only took the pressure off for making the playoffs, but it also showed that we had some strength at the mile-and-a-half tracks.”

Another champion looking to bolster his playoff hopes on Sunday is seven-time title winner Jimmie Johnson. The No. 48 driver is the last to win consecutive races at Las Vegas, taking the checkered flag three straight times from 2005 to 2007. He also won the race in 2010. However, 2018 has not been a hot start for Johnson, who has been plagued by crashes to start the season. Johnson enters the race 35th in the standings.

It wouldn’t be a Las Vegas trip without talking about the hometown drivers either. Kyle and Kurt Busch always show up to compete at the 1.5-mile track. Both own a pair of pole positions, and Kyle has two top-five finishes in his last four starts. As for Kurt, his best finish in the race is third and he has only had two top-10s in his last 11 races there.

This season is all about the next generation of NASCAR and one of those next-gen drivers to look out for on Sunday is Cole Custer. The 20-year-old will be making his Cup Series debut for Rick Ware Racing, driving the No. 51 Ford Fusion that Justin Marks earned 12th-place in at Daytona. Custer won the 2017 Xfinity Series closer at Homestead-Miami Speedway last season and has won twice in the Truck Series.

“This is a dream come true,” Custer said of his Monster Energy Series opportunity, via a NASCAR press release. “It’s going to be a new experience for me, but I feel that we can have a productive day by completing all the laps and seeing the checkered flag.”

Seat selection process for Las Vegas NHL season ticket-holders starts Monday

Owner Bill Foley has been spending millions since he officially got his NHL expansion team for Las Vegas on June 22.

Monday, he finally starts to get some of those dollars back when the team launches its long-awaited seating phase for its 16,000 season ticket-holders.

For the next few weeks, those who put down deposits may go online, select seats in T-Mobile Arena and begin to pay off their bill. All buyers will have to put down 20 percent, with the balance spread interest-free over the next nine months. Season subscribers will have the option to pay in full.

“We want to make it as fair as possible for everyone,” said Todd Pollock, the team’s vice president for ticketing and suites. “We wanted to devise a system that was easy for the user and it had to be done in such a way that they could understand it.”

Fans have been mailed a brochure and video on the process. Each season ticket-holder will be assigned an access code and a specific time to select seats. Those with the longest commitment for the most expensive seats get to select first. Those who chose the least expensive option for the shortest time period (one year) will pick last.

“There’s always the challenge of making everyone happy,” Pollock said. “We’ve said all along that the people who committed the longest went to the front of the line.”

Many fans scouted seating locations at the team’s open house this summer.

Having also attended the open house, this reporter test-drove the seat selection system Friday. Trying to keep things as realistic as possible (that is, not selecting center-ice seats six rows from the glass), I initially opted for the upper bowl behind the net in Section 206, Row Q, at $25 per seat per game. But after talking myself into believing the RJ will give me a raise, I decided on Loge seating behind the goal. Those seats are $75 per seat per game.

I had 10 minutes to make my decision. I logged onto the system, and it asked me where I wanted to sit. A 3-dimensional virtual model of T-Mobile Arena popped up and I clicked on Section 120, directly behind the goal. At first, I looked at Row P, then Row B, which was more expensive ($90). So I moved up to Row J, the lowest row in my price range.

I clicked on seats 1 and 2, but then noticed a railing obstructing my view. I canceled my order and moved over one section to 119. I stayed in Row J, looked at the image and it gave me a clear view of the entire ice.

In a matter of seconds, I had checked out, the owner of seats 8 and 9 in Section 119, Row J. I was also out $6,600 plus a $15 handling fee. The entire process had taken less than four minutes.
