The Federal Aviation Administration is holding three workshops to discuss concerns about flight path noise around Sky Harbor International Airport.

The workshops are a requirement from a 2017 lawsuit settlement over noise in the area. Neighborhoods near the airport filed suit after the FAA changed routes in 2014. Since then, the administration agreed to revert back to the pre-2014 routes.

Questions and concerns about flight paths can be voiced Monday evening at Desert Vista High School, Tuesday evening at Pinnacle High School or Wednesday evening at Cesar Chavez High School.

The FAA will launch an online public comment period Wednesday as well.
