The Federal Aviation Administration and Los Angeles officials joined a number of industry leaders expressing opposition to a proposal to impose a mandatory nighttime curfew at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif. (BUR). The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority has undertaken a Part 161 study to impose a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6:59 a.m. for all operations except in cases of medical, emergency or military flights. The curfew would provide a one-hour grace period after 10 p.m. for mechanical or weather delays.
