‘Extreme discomfort’ from airplane noise, Phoenix sues Federal Aviation Administration

Published on : Tuesday, June 2, 2015

faaThe airplane noise over Phoenix is that bad that many residents can’t communicate to each other and they can’t even sleep peacefully. So the city is now suing the Federal Aviation Administration.

 

Last September, the FAA changed flight paths in the Phoenix area, after that the cacophony started. According to the FAA and airlines both the changes would increase safety and decrease fuel costs.

 

The city claims that the FAA caused “a negative impact on the Phoenix community without proper due process, notification and consideration.”

 

On Monday the FAA said that it has not seen the lawsuit and can’t comment on pending legislation.

 

But in a letter to the city manager Monday, FAA regional administrator Glen Martin said the agency supports certain changes, such as adjusting westbound departures and restricting some turns for early flights.

 

According resident serious changes can’t come soon enough. The noise isn’t just obnoxious for residents — it could threaten home values and affect air quality closer to homes. It is super frustrating, and we’ve had no hope. He hopes the city’s lawsuit will make the FAA think again about changing flight plans over other cities.

 

He said, “All we want is just the old flight patterns to be put back, we feel that the FAA screwed up.”
