FAA Flight Path Changes

Sky Harbor at Night

June 6, 2018: On June 6, the US Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington DC closed the lawsuit that the City of Phoenix and historic neighborhoods filed against the FAA. This, after the flight paths affecting neighborhoods northwest and southwest of downtown Phoenix were moved back to the pre-Sept 2014 routes. The City and the FAA will continue with Step 2 of the agreement, which includes discussions with neighborhoods in other areas throughout the Phoenix airspace. See the Mandate and the Order

On Sept. 18, 2014 the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented changes in flight paths to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as part of its effort to streamline departures and arrivals using NextGen satellite-based navigation. Since then, Sky Harbor has received thousands of noise complaints and questions from the community.
