NBAA Welcomes Rosekind Nomination To NTSB

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 30.
 
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."
