GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Luke Air Force Base officials say it’ll be noisier than usual around the Glendale base during some nights the remainder of March.

Officials say Luke pilots assigned to fly F-16 jets are scheduled to conduct training flights Monday through Thursday evenings.

No operations are planned on weekends.

Base officials say they try to minimize night flights to reduce the noise impact on neighboring communities on the west side of the Phoenix metro area.

However, they say it’s critical for pilots’ safety and performance that they learn to fly at night.
