New Member's Specialty Is The Effects Of Fatigue
The National Business Aviation
Association (NBAA) Thursday welcomed the White House nomination of
Dr. Mark R. Rosekind to the National Transportation Safety Board
(NTSB). The White House announced the nomination on September
Rosekind, president and chief scientist of California-based
Alertness Solutions, is an expert on the effects of fatigue on
productivity, safety and flight operations. Throughout his career,
Rosekind has studied and made recommendations to improve operations
in the aviation industry, as well as the military and healthcare
and energy industries.
"We are pleased with Dr. Rosekind's
nomination to the NTSB," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen. "His
exhaustive research and acclaimed studies have provided proven
strategies that have helped many companies address challenges
related to pilot fatigue. Given the aviation community's renewed
focus on fatigue in recent months, we believe Dr. Rosekind is the
right addition to the Board at the right time."
Rosekind's experience also includes work for NASA's Fatigue
Countermeasures Program in the Human Factors Division, and chief of
the Aviation Operations Branch (human factors activities) in the
NASA Ames Flight Management and Human Factors Division.
"Dr. Rosekind has been a partner to the business aviation
community for many years," continued Bolen. "We've always been
honored to welcome him as a featured speaker at some of our
industry's most important safety-themed events, including our U.S.
and European safety standown events. We look forward to continuing
our productive efforts to promote business aviation safety when his
nomination to the Board is confirmed."
