PHOENIX (AP) - Monitoring results released by Phoenix officials bolster the city’s contention that revised flight paths for Sky Harbor International Airport significantly increased noise in several neighborhoods.

Spurred by residents’ complaints, city officials are pushing the Federal Aviation Administration to change flight paths that the FAA implemented last September.

The FAA has said it’s looking at the issue.

Rob Adams of Landrum and Brown Aviation Planning said the monitoring results contradict statements about current noise levels from overhead aircraft not exceeding background noise levels.

The new flight paths are part of a nationwide effort to streamline aircraft routing for safety and fuel efficiency.
