1,455: Use of Private Aircraft

Last Revised: July 2007

Employees are to limit the use of private aircraft on state business to trips that are completely within the borders of the State of Nevada, unless prior approval is obtained from the appropriate dean or vice president. Passengers are to be limited to employees only. In these cases, the employee-owner of a private aircraft must show evidence of public liability insurance in an amount not less than $2 million single limit.

In cases where employees are requesting permission to use private aircraft for trips outside the state, approval must be obtained from the appropriate vice president prior to the trip being taken. Justification should include factors such as total travel time and cost of alternate transportation. In such cases, only employees are allowed as passengers, unless approved by the appropriate dean or vice president. The employee-owner of private aircraft to be used for trips outside the state must show evidence of public liability insurance in an amount not less than $5 million single limit.

The approved reimbursement rate for the use of private aircraft is in accordance with federal GSA rates per air mile traveled.
