Committee outlines potential plane-noise recommendations
How things were: Based on FAA data, this map shows the communities that were affected by noise when the Big Sur flight path was in service prior to the rollout of the FAA's NextGen program in 2015. Flights to San Francisco International Airport arrived via the Menlo waypoint. Orange represents the least amount of noise, 35-40 decibels; yellow is at 40-45 decibels and gray is more than 45 decibels. Courtesy of Sky Posse.
