A spokesperson for the FAA says the Phoenix area has seen a significant increase in aviation in general, especially at the Deer Valley and.

The FAA is continuing these efforts with airports and aircraft and engine manufacturers to further reduce aircraft noise. The FAA is actively researching new operational procedure concepts that could reduce the noise exposure to communities by changing where aircraft fly through precision navigation and how aircraft are flown to reduce noise.

To accomplish this, Airport Planning and Programming (APP) collaborates with other offices within the FAA, such as the Office of Environment and Energy (AEE). The Airport Noise and Environmental R&D program develops guidance and tools for planning and environmental issues related to airport development and operation and helps to inform policy.

Aircraft noise is noise pollution produced by an aircraft or its components, whether on the ground while parked such as auxiliary power units, while taxiing, on run-up from propeller and jet exhaust, during take off, underneath and lateral to departure and arrival paths, over-flying while en route, or during landing.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) established DNL as the primary metric for aircraft noise analysis and expressing aircraft noise exposure in the United States.

The calculation of DNL (expressed in decibels) considers the time of day an aircraft operated and applies a decibel correction to nighttime (10 p.m.

to 7 a.m.) sound levels.
