Agency contends that it’s already adjusted the procedures twice in response to residents’ concerns.

Federal Aviation Administration officials told a group of Newport Beach city leaders and residents Wednesday that the FAA would not make any additional adjustments to a contentious John Wayne Airport departure path.
Residents upset about the year-old satellite-navigated route asked the administration to change the paths of some planes in an attempt to decrease noise, and to send some planes farther offshore before turning down the coast.
The FAA, however, has already adjusted the procedures twice in response to residents’ concerns. While the aviation officials said they would take suggestions for a new route on the drawing board, which will apply to different flights, they said the existing path was set for now.
