'87 Deadline Set for Quieter Jets

July 04, 1985

Burbank Airport commissioners have voted to ban noisy jetliners from the airfield as of April, 1987, almost two years earlier than required by previous noise-abatement rules.

The unanimous decision on Monday to adopt new noise rules represented a compromise between the airlines and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. The agency in December considered forcing air carriers to convert their fleets to federally certified Stage 3 aircraft, the quietest commercial jetliners available, by January, 1986.

The authority's previous noise rules, adopted in 1982, required the airlines to stop using the noisier jets by January, 1989.
