From what I have read, the average 737-800 (the most common plane in the US) has an average climb rate of about 1800 feet per minute fully loaded. So we're probably talking roughly about 30' of less height in that short of a distance for the Coyotes location...give or take.

The concern that PHX and airport officials tried bringing up was the noise being of concern for the residential component. But I don't think 30' is going to be much of a difference in jet noise.
