DSC_0313 (3)President Trump announced the appointment of Stephen Dickson to the position of Federal Aviation Administration administrator late Tuesday.

Mr. Dickson is a former Delta Air Lines executive. He retired as senior vice president of flight operations after 27 years at the airline. He is an Air Force Academy graduate, a former Air Force officer, and F-15 fighter pilot.

The FAA has been run by Daniel Elwell, who was named the agency’s deputy administrator in June 2017.

Once confirmed by the Senate, Mr. Dickson will serve a five-year term at the FAA, an agency which faces multiple questions over its safety certification process for the Boeing 737 Max as well as its response to the two Boeing 737 Max crashes.
