Huerta Finally Confirmed to Lead FAA
January 02, 2013
Buried among fiscal cliff legislation and other final wrap up items of the 112th Congress, the Senate finally confirmed Michael Huerta’s nomination to lead the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for a five year term.
Huerta’s confirmation was pending for more than nine months while serving as acting administrator following the resignation of Randy Babbitt. The five-year term provides much needed stability at the top of the FAA, which faces the challenges of looming budget cuts and a continually growing aviation sector.
ARSA and its members congratulate Administrator Huerta and look forward to working with him to build upon aviation industry’s stellar safety record.
