“All of a sudden, I noticed planes every 90 seconds,” said Scottsdale resident Bud Kern. “It was a big change from no noise to a lot of noise.”

Kern, who lives in the DC Ranch community in northern Scottsdale, is not alone. Soon after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) made changes to arrival and departure flight paths in 2014, residents around the Valley began complaining that the new routes increased flight noise over their communities.

He and other Scottsdale residents attending an FAA workshop last week to offer their comments on what the agency should do about flight paths into and out of Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.
