Comments Submitted on Bob Hope Airport Curfew

On July 22, 2009, the deadline expired for public comments on an application filed with the FAA by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority to impose a mandatory curfew on all aircraft operations at the Bob Hope Airport.  This is the first such application submitted for formal FAA review under the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990.  The City of Burbank, along with numerous residents living in neighborhoods surrounding the Airport, submitted comments in favor of the curfew.  Several aviation industry groups submitted comments opposing the curfew.  The FAA has until November 1, 2009, to render its decision the application.  Comments submitted by our client, the City of Burbank, are available here.  To access all comments, visit and search for Docket FAA-2009-0546.
