Commercial and general aviation aircraft will be flying lower over Mesa and other East Valley communities if a federal proposal to modify airspace is adopted.

Today, the Federal Aviation Administration will hold an informal meeting about a proposal intended to create greater separation between small aircraft and commercial airliners, and to improve efficiency at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

The proposal, which could impact the entire Valley, is not expected to be approved for at least another year.

The Arizona Pilots Association, which represents general aviation pilots, is opposing the plan, concerned it would force them to fly too close to the ground and could lead to more noise complaints.
