Nomination of Phillip Washington as Next FAA Administrator
- 07 Jul
PASS's statement on the nomination of Phillip A. Washington to be the next FAA administrator:
PASS welcomes the news that the Biden Administration has put forth a nominee to lead the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as the next administrator. Acting Administrator Billy Nolen has been serving admirably in that role since the retirement of Steve Dickson at the end of March.
PASS looks forward to working with Mr. Washington on the many challenges facing the FAA. We are encouraged by Mr. Washington’s management skills as demonstrated while serving as the CEO at Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Denver International Airport. This experience will be instrumental in implementing provisions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) within the FAA, work he has begun with the BIL funds received by Denver’s airport.
PASS looks forward to the nomination process, which will allow Mr. Washington to present his goals and initiatives for the FAA and how those will impact the employees we represent.
