Initial information indicated the helicopter was flying under visual flight rules from Jhon Wayne airport in Orange County. By the time the helicopter reached Burbank, the pilot requested to fly under visual flight rules. 

During the pilot’s conversation with air traffic control, they advised the pilot there was a delay due to traffic. The helicopter circled for 12 minutes until air traffic control approved the special visual flight rules.
