AIRPORT DISTRICT — Dozens of residents filtered in and out of the airport Sky Room Monday afternoon, as a brief video laid out the Burbank- Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority’s case for banning all late-night and early-morning flights. The four-hour workshop was the first public input session meant to gain support for the proposed curfew laid out in the Part 161 Study that would ban all flights, save for emergency, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. Informational packets were also made available and airport officials were on hand to answer questions from residents.

BOB HOPE AIRPORT — The Federal Aviation Administration on Friday informed the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority that its application for a proposed nighttime curfew at Bob Hope Airport was complete, setting off a nearly six-month review period. The announcement, made late Friday in an announcement signed by Catherine Lang, the FAA’s acting associate administrator for airports, establishes that the authority’s roughly 800-page request to restrict all landings and departures at Bob Hope Airport between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. is complete.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) wants residents living near Bob Hope Airport to be able to get a good night's sleep, so he has reintroduced legislation to let the airport impose a formal, legally binding curfew on all flight operations. Schiff, along with Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), reintroduced the Valley-Wide Noise Relief Act this week, which would give Bob Hope and Van Nuys airports the authority to prohibit flights after 10 p.m. and before 7 a.m. Schiff said Thursday that the legislation, which was first introduced in 2011 but failed to pass, was born out of a desire to rectify what he and Sherman saw as a mistake made by the Federal Aviation Administration in rejecting Bob Hope's application for a curfew in 2009.

BURBANK — The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority unanimously voted Monday to start the clock on approving a mandatory ban on all flights at Bob Hope Airport from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. as recommended in the Part 161 Study. The authority formally presented the proposed curfew to the public in a conference room at the Burbank Airport Marriott Hotel & Convention Center and will hold a 45-day open public comment period, starting March 31. Officials will also hold a public workshop on April 14 and a public hearing on May 12. On June 16, the authority plans to add comments to the report and will submit it to the Federal Aviation Administration, which has the final say as to whether the curfew will be implemented, officials said.

CITY HALL ? The City Council agreed Tuesday to maintain Burbank?s 10 p.m. curfew in the wake of a challenge to lengthen it by one hour from Councilman Dave Golonski. The curfew currently prohibits minors from ?loitering, idling, wandering, strolling or playing? in certain public places between 10 p.m. and sunrise, according to the City Charter. The purpose of the ordinance is ?to protect our kids from potential victimization and enhances the safety of our residences during the late hours,?

These Burbank airport curfew people sure don?t know their heinie from their elbow about winning a political campaign. First of all, take the word curfew. What does that conjure up in your mind? Something the Nazis did in Poland, or worse, what your parents did to you when you were 16. Not very positive, is it? To win the issue they need to learn to play the game like the big boys do. They?ve got to use what Winston Churchill called a ?terminological inexactitude.? In other words ?

A bill moving through the U.S. Congress to allow Bob Hope Airport to change its voluntary curfew to a mandatory one is supported by the airfield and the city of Burbank, but it could present a tricky situation for UPS and FedEx, which rely on early-morning arrivals. Back in May, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), along with Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), reintroduced the Valley-Wide Noise Relief Act, which would give Bob Hope and Van Nuys airports the authority to prohibit flights after 10 p.m. and before 7 a.m. The measure had failed to pass during the last legislative session.

A new public relations campaign is beginning to make it appear that there is activity to obtain noise reduction (“Airport officials still eyeing light curfew,” March 17). It cannot be relied upon to have any substance leading to practical results. As in the past, all pretenses to make this happen will take place in private meetings. Those involved have no intention to speak publicly about their respective objectives. The strongest opposition in the Part 161 application for a mandatory curfew came from scheduled airlines and general aviation.

AIRPORT DISTRICT — Five months after federal officials rejected a nine-year, multimillion-dollar application for nighttime flight restrictions, Bob Hope Airport officials on Monday announced plans to possibly switch the current curfew from voluntary to mandatory. Joyce Streator, president of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, made the announcement, saying the authority has begun discussions with airlines on converting the existing voluntary nighttime curfew between 10 p.m. and 6:59 a.m. into a permanent mandatory restriction for all passenger air carriers.

It might be easy to dismiss the failed effort of Bob Hope Airport officials for nighttime restrictions as a waste of money and resources, but then, it was a battle of necessity. Regardless of the chances a curfew had with the Federal Aviation Administration, it was the job of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority to try, and try it did, like no other airport has. The closely watched application was denied, but it wasn’t all for naught. We now know that avenue has been exhausted, and that other paths to noise relief must be pursued.

John F. Cabrera (“Don’t like noise? Then move,” Nov. 13) is a prime example of an attitude the British call “I’m all right, Jack.” Living in Glendale, well out of the flight paths, he has the nerve to tell those of us stuck in the flight path to simply move. Twenty-one years ago when we bought our home adjacent to the WB Ranch, and several miles from the airport, we checked for sound. We were concerned about the proximity to the freeway.

BOB HOPE AIRPORT — In their first public comments since federal officials turned down a nine-year, multimillion-dollar application for nighttime flight restrictions, Bob Hope Airport officials on Monday said that they would keep pushing for noise relief. The Federal Aviation Administration on Nov. 2 denied a request from the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority for a ban on air traffic at the airport between 10 p.m. and 6:59 a.m., with exceptions for emergency flights and medical aircraft.
