Video: Peninsula residents near SFO complain about airplane noise


SAN MATEO COUNTY (KRON) — There has been rising complaints from neighbors on the Peninsula over new flight paths at San Francisco International Airport.

Residents said the paths are causing planes to fly lower and more frequently over their homes.

KRON’s Scott Rates talked to residents and an airport spokesman about the issue.

The FAA implemented a flight-control project called NextGen. The program uses newer satellite technology to guide planes more effetely. However, since the program started in March in the Bay Area, complaints have soared.

An SFO spokesman acknowledged the spike in complaints and said the airport has shared those concerns with the FAA.

The FAA said it will be looking into the matter.
