On behalf of the 11,000 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) employees represented by PASS, the union congratulates Steve Dickson on his confirmation by the U.S. Senate to become the next FAA administrator.
PASS National President Mike Perrone, who served with Dickson on the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) Advisory Committee, said today, “The FAA has been without a permanent administrator for more than a year and I welcome the steady hand that Dickson will bring to the helm during a time when the agency is facing intense scrutiny. I look forward to meeting with him very soon and sharing the thoughts and experience of our members.”
At a hearing in May in front of the Senate Commerce Committee, Dickson expressed support for the safety-critical work performed by FAA employees and the vital role the government plays in maintaining the largest, safest and most complex air traffic control system in the world.
