Helicopter Association International (HAI) is pleased to congratulate the Honorable Robert L. Sumwalt, who the U.S. Senate confirmed as the chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) on Thursday.

“We could not be happier with Mr. Sumwalt’s confirmation,” says Matt Zuccaro, president and CEO of HAI. “We have been pleased with the leadership the U.S. Senate has shown on aviation issues this summer, and this confirmation is another strong indication that the Senate takes transportation safety issues very seriously.”

“We look forward to continuing our strong, productive relationship with the NTSB under Mr. Sumwalt’s leadership,” continues Zuccaro. “His vast range of experience includes working with airlines and general aviation. He has also been one of the staunchest supporters of safe helicopter operations, for which we are grateful.”

With Senate confirmation, Sumwalt becomes the 14th chairman of NTSB, where he will serve for a period of two years.
