Foxx appoints 10 members to FAA management group
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx has chosen 10 industry executives to serve three-year terms on the Federal Aviation Administration’s Management Advisory Council.
The new appointees will join three existing members in the group, which was formed out of 1996’s Federal Aviation Reauthorization Act. The council meets once every quarter to discuss safety and air travel efficiency.
The new members are:
- Steve Alterman, president, Cargo Airline Association
- Bill Ayer, former chairman, Alaska Air Group
- Montie Brewer, former president and chief executive officer, Air Canada
- Ray Conner, vice chairman, Boeing
- Craig Fuller, president, the Fuller Co.
- Jane Garvey, former FAA administrator
- Michael Hancock, mayor of Denver
- Lee Moak, president, Air Line Pilots Association
- John “Jack” Potter, president and CEO, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority
- Gwynne Shotwell, president and chief operating officer, Space X
“These established aviation leaders will help guide the FAA in its many critical air-transportation policy decisions, supporting our commitment to a first class aviation system,” Foxx said in a statement. “These proven aviation experts will be lending their knowledge to help advance the nation’s air travel system as the safest and most efficient in the world.”
