In September 2014, new "Nextgen" flight paths were implemented in Phoenix generating thousands of complaints exploded and a subsequent lawsuit.
Last August, a federal court ruled the FAA to be "arbitrary and capricious" largely due to the lack of meaningful local engagement of taxpayers, and overturned the Nextgen routing of the flight paths.
Now the FAA is working cooperatively with the City of Phoenix to get the public's input about the flight paths changes. In the meantime, the FAA says it now has a new plan, routing flights near the airport to pre-September 2014 routes "as best it can."
