Bruce Landsberg Named NTSB Vice Chairman

Former AOPA Air Safety Institute President Sworn In On Tuesday

Bruce Landsberg was appointed Tuesday Vice Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board and also starts his appointment as a member.

Landsberg, a well-known general aviation safety advocate for decades, is past president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Air Safety Institute and has held management positions with FlightSafety International and Cessna Aircraft Company.

“Throughout my career, I have had a great appreciation for the work the NTSB does,” Landsberg said. “It is an honor to join the NTSB in its pursuit of transportation safety in all modes of transportation.”

NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt added, “Vice Chairman Landsberg’s expertise and long-standing commitment to safety will be invaluable assets.  We welcome him to the NTSB.”

Landsberg, who has more than 6,000 hours piloting aircraft, holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate and multiple flight instructor certificates; he also served in the U.S. Air Force.  He is a graduate of the University of Maryland with both bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Landsberg’s appointment as Vice Chairman is for a two-year term and the term as member is for five years. A fifth member, Jennifer Homendy has been confirmed and is scheduled to join the board soon.
