The City of Phoenix Aviation Department operates the Phoenix Airport System, which consists of Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX), Deer Valley Airport (DVT), and Goodyear Airport (GYR). The Department serves as the primary liaison between the community, airlines, and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regarding aircraft overflight activity and noise concerns. While the authority to control aircraft in flight and on the ground lies exclusively with the FAA, the airlines control the number of flights and flight schedules.
The Department collects aircraft noise and flight operations data to analyze, advise and assist the community with up-to-date information. Additionally, the Department manages noise concerns received from residents through a variety of services, including the noise hotline, PlaneNoise smartphone app, Casper flight tracker, and the Department’s website complaint form.
