Approval of curfew for Bob Hope Airport could be delayed for more than a year, according to the aviation agency.

“We’ve got to reduce noise at both Valley airports. . . .  We shouldn’t have to choose whether to get a substantial noise decrease at one and not the other,” Sherman said. “The goal is to let people in the Valley sleep.”

Sherman said he will send a letter to the FAA that will detail his support for curfews at Bob Hope and Van Nuys airports, adding that approving the Part 161 Study might move more quickly if a Democratic administration he hopes will be “more pro-neighborhood, more pro-environmental than the Bush administration” assumes control of the White House in January.

Airport officials said they will continue to press for the curfew’s passage, despite opposition and delays as a result of future studies.

“The commitment to the curfew is unwavering here,” airport interim Executive Director Dan Feger said. “It’s the mechanism to achieve it that is complex.”
