Plans to change Logan flight paths causing concern

Residents in some south suburbs are upset at an upcoming change in flight paths for aircraft leaving a major runway at Logan Airport that would send more planes over their neighborhoods come March.

The Federal Aviation Administration recently released a draft environmental assessment of a satellite-based air traffic management system for planes departing from Runway 33L, which it says will improve efficiency and safety. The system, which the FAA plans to use for the runway beginning in March, will channel air traffic through a much narrower corridor than in the past, resulting in fewer planes over some areas and heavier traffic over others, including sections of Milton, Randolph, Canton, and Dedham.
