Lindbergh Field Noise: Complaints go up, as neighbors air frustrations

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Complaints are once again on the rise over noise from planes using San Diego's Lindbergh Field, but they are complaints that Point Loma residents say are falling on deaf ears.

The Airport Authority reported more flights are on track to break curfew than last year - flights that until the past year or so rarely flew over Point Loma family homes.

Despite the FAA holding off on changing flight paths over south Point Loma, one after another Point Loma resident denounced the FAA's stance that it is not happening and said flight traffic is increasing.

The Airport Authority reported 99-percent of noise complaints come from the Point Loma neighborhood and they are on the increase. Further, the agency said noise monitoring sites cost a million dollars and the current locations are working.

Residents said they will continue to fight and prove that increased flights over their homes is a quality of life and health issue.

The FAA responded saying it occasionally vectors aircraft off departure procedures for safety and efficiency purposes.

You can learn more about increased curfew violations via the San Diego Airport Authority noise report.
