Three months after one year of the renunciation by Stephen Dicksonnominated by donald trump to be in front of Federal Aviation Administration, the agency faced the flight chaos alone after a failure at the national level due to the lack of a permanent leader.
The lack of a face is due to the fact that the candidate that President Joe Biden nominated to head the FAA, Phillip Washingtonhas not received a confirmation hearing, even though Democrats are in charge of the Senate, leading the President of the United States to the election, this month, again of his name for consideration or to identify a new candidate, but it is not clear when he will receive a hearing.
In addition to the lack of an audience, Biden’s candidate is joined by the “limited aviation experience” as well as the name in a search warrant issued as part of a political corruption investigation in Los Angeles, California.
“I enjoy this job, managing Denver International Airport, and I will do the best I can. I am honored by the nomination. And if that happens, If confirmation happens, I will also do the best job I can.”Washington told CNN weeks ago.
Washington is currently the CEO of Denver International Airporthis first major leadership role focused solely on aviation, while Bill Nolen serves as the agency’s chief security officer under the title of acting director.
