FAA Metroplex Process - Public Invited to Comment
Phoenix is one of 21 areas in the United States where the FAA is implementing or planning to implement its Metroplex program. Metroplex looks at the entire airspace and all airports that use the airspace, and examines how technology can be implemented to improve safety, efficiency, capacity, and environmental impacts. The PHX Metroplex project will analyze aircraft arrival and departure procedures at a number of airports in a 200 mile radius of Phoenix. The project may involve changes in aircraft flight paths and/or altitudes in certain areas.
On May 1, 2015 FAA sent Glendale Municipal Airport the following letter regarding Notice of Intent to Prepare An Environmental Assessment Project For Phoenix Metroplex Project

Recent Changes to Sky Harbor Flight Paths
On Sept. 18, 2014 the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented changes in flight paths to and from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport as part of its effort to streamline departures and arrivals using satellite-based navigation. Since then, Phoenix Sky Harbor and the Federal Aviation Administration have received questions and complaints about the changes.
The city of Glendale Airport held a public meeting to discuss the recent changes to the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport flight paths. The meeting was held Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at the Glendale Adult Center, 5970 W. Brown St. at 6 p.m. Representatives from city of Glendale presented information and discussed how the changes may affect Glendale residents. Representatives from the cities of Glendale and Phoenix held a question and answer session following the presentation.
Additional information on the flight path changes and FAA regulations can be found online. Residents can also contact the Glendale Municipal Airport by calling 623-930-2188.

The city of Glendale has updated the Airport Master Plan to include inventory of facilities, forecasts of future aviation demand, and to plan for timely development to meet demand.
