Airport authority votes for curfew study By Tom Risen
BURBANK — The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Commission voted unanimously Monday in favor of a study it will use to support Bob Hope Airport’s application for a curfew on nighttime flights. After eight years and $6 million spent on the Part 161 study, the approval by the nine-member commission was the final step in completing the first study of its kind since the process was legalized by Congress in 1991. The Federal Aviation Administration will now have one month to accept the study and six months to make a ruling on it, said Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill. (Editor's Note: It is outrageous in a time when the state and the cities in our state are suffering from chronic budget issues that this waste of money would be forced on the public.)

The curfew would provide a one-hour grace period after 10 p.m. for mechanical or weather delays.

Subj: BURBANK CURFEW PROPOSAL
Dear Commissioners: I am writing you on behalf of the board and the statewide membership of the California Pilots Association. The California Pilots Association (CalPilots) is one that is dedicated to preserving the state?s airports and the rights of the users of those airports. As the regional vice president (Region IV) for that association, I?d like to go on record that our association disagrees with the Airport Authority?s proposal for a nighttime curfew at Bob Hope Airport (BUR). In your Part 161 study, the basic justification is benefits versus costs and the benefits appear to be all for the government and homeowners and the costs are all at the expense of the aviation operators and their employees, plus some travelers that will lose the convenience of a community airport. Somehow that doesn?t seem fair.
