Los Altos Jet Noise
With the implementation of NextGen, a flight path was moved over Los Altos (SERFR) and Los Altos saw a drastic increase in flight noise.
On November 17, 2016, a congressional select committee voted to restore the original ground track of the flight path which had been used for over 30 years (BSR). However Los Altos is at the risk of seeing a drastic increase in noise if the Palo Alto Plan goes into effect which is another recommendation of the Select Committee.
Los Altos is also getting traffic from vectored fligths from SERFR, and the BDEGA flight paths.
