Sky Harbor airport noise complaints head to federal court
The Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) - A federal appeals court is set to hear arguments in two cases 
over noise complaints at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
The court schedule reflects that the cases will be going before the court in 
Washington, D.C. on Friday. 
The city of Phoenix filed its lawsuit against the Federal Aviation 
Administration in 2015 after the agency changed flight paths at the airport as 
part of a national program for safety and efficiency. The city claimed the new 
routes significantly increased noise in several neighborhoods. 
Neighborhood associations filed their own complaint against the FAA months 
Both complaints ask the court to find the agency at fault for how it went about 
changing the flight paths. 
The FAA previously argued it consulted with a variety of Phoenix agencies 
before making the changes.
