It seems every few years a debate arises about the McCarran airport flight patterns. Recently that debate was sparked once again when the flight patterns were altered to pass over many communities across the valley. News channels covered the story posing the question as to whether or not the changes in the patterns affected real estate in Las Vegas. Several home owners and real estate agents were interviewed. Some claimed there would be a direct impact on home values while other suggested that there would be little if any impact.
Mayor Goodman among others oppose the change in flight patterns considerably. Some have created web sites to combat the changes.
Time will tell if any real affects will occur due to the changes. If history is any indicator changes are likely to occur in the future.
