Complaints Arise Over Air Force Training Flights

Air Force officials plan to meet with residents Tuesday to discuss complaints over airplane noise from the academy's cadet training programs.

Published reports say complaints from residents of the nearby Briargate neighborhood have become more frequent since January, when the academy changed its air traffic patterns due to Federal Aviation Administration concerns.

The FAA notified the academy in late 2012 of new mandates that changed the route of some planes headed to Denver International Airport. The new route put cadets on training flights below Denver-bound commercial jets. That triggered a wider review of academy traffic patterns and changes that put cadet planes out of the path of jets headed to Colorado Springs, too.

The new routes are safer but put more planes in a compact area east of the academy.
