Meet Randy Babbitt, the President’s Pick to Head the FAA

March 30, 2009 | Posted in: Airline News,DOT,Travel Safety

Randy Babbitt was an airline pilot for 20 years, who then morphed into a union activist (two terms as head of the Air Line Pilots Association in the 90′s), and lately worked as an aviation consultant.

Now President Obama wants him to head the Federal Aviation Administration – and be responsible for the air traffic control network which coordinates air space for more than 30,000 commercial flights per day.

Both labor and management have praises Babbitt – who’s said he has three major goals in the FAA:

1.) Get moving on modernizing our air-traffic control system; 2.) Fix strained relations with the nation’s controllers; and 3.) Bring “science” to determining work-hour limits for those who fly and control the planes.

He has – as they say – got his work cut out for him.
