Phoenix homeowners who say flight paths are plaguing neighborhoods with noise and don't appear to be going away want a federal appeals court to step in.

A coalition of residents said Monday that they have filed a petition for review with the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C.

The petition was filed Friday.

It wants the court to examine the Federal Aviation Administration's final decisions on implementing certain paths at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

According to court documents, residents also want the court to get the agency to reopen discussions about possible alternative solutions.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the agency doesn't comment on pending litigation.

The FAA has carried out new satellite-based arrival and departure paths out of Phoenix since September 2014.
