BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - The Federal Aviation Administration says
the Bob Hope Airport needs to submit an environmental analysis
before the agency can consider its proposal to ban late-night
flights in Burbank.
The FAA sent a letter Thursday informing the airport that the
analysis document was needed to complete its application. The
Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, which voted last month
to seek the ban, has 30 days to submit the final document.
The airport has said a ban on most late-night flights would
reduce noise in surrounding Burbank neighborhoods. Airlines observe
a voluntary ban from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m.
Other airports in the region - including nearby Van Nuys Airport
- have complained that the move would just shift the noise burden
