Dear Mr. President,
We, the undersigned, wish to see a revitalized and strengthened Federal Aviation Administration.
In the wake of the Colgan Air Flight 3407 crash, delayed pilot fatigue rulemakings, the furlough of 4,000+ FAA safety inspectors and other employees in Summer 2011, and the continued stalemate in Congress over long-term funding, the FAA has been through a lot.
FAA needs a steady hand who can guide it through uncertain times. We can think of no better person than Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, who guided U.S. Air Flight 1549 to a safe landing on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009.
In addition to being a world-class pilot, Capt. Sullenberg is an internationally-renowned safety expert.
Mr. President, we respectfully request you nominate Capt. Sullenberger for FAA Administrator.
