Burbank Airport – Open Letter on Part 161 Study

Part 161 Comment Docket
Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority

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.
