A city hearing examiner has approved a helicopter landing pad for a Federal Way church.

It would allow Pastors Casey and Wendy Treat to fly between the Christian Faith Center and its Everett campus. Unless neighbors appeal to the city council, Monday's decision will become final.

Some neighbors complained at a hearing of the possible noise. The hearing examiner said there would be no measurable increase. There are restrictions against frequent or nighttime flights.

A church spokesman told The Tacoma News Tribune a helicopter would be used only on major religious holidays or for special guest speakers.

The church moved about a year ago from SeaTac to Federal Way.
