Advisory committee approves new MSP flight plan proposal


A new FAA-proposed flight pattern for airplanes coming into and out of Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport that claims to be safer and more efficient was approved by a Metropolitan Airports Commission committee Wednesday, MPR says.

Hundreds of concerned residents attended informational open houses and provided feedback. Eagan resident Gary Torfin says the new flight plan would put a constant flow of planes directly over his house, creating much more noise.

The noise oversight committee was created to make a recommendation to the Metropolitan Airports Commission. MAC will take up the issue Monday.

MPR provides a map of the proposed flight plan:
