Is Another FAA Employee Heading For An Airline Gig?
The FAA's Gerald E. Lavey, Deputy
Assistant Administrator for Internal Communications, has confirmed
that the FAA's COO, Russ Chew, is heading for the exit.
In a brief statement issued to the FAA employee site, the FAA
reported that "At her weekly staff meeting on the morning of
February 5, the Administrator announced with regret that Chief
Operating Officer Russ Chew would be leaving at the end of
February. She said “we were hoping to keep hold on him
longer, but this was an opportunity he just couldn’t pass
up.” Just what that opportunity will be is unclear at the
moment because, as Chew himself said, he has a number of options
under consideration and has not made a final decision. But, he said
he will stay in aviation in some capacity. The Administrator will
be sending a broadcast message to all employees later on Monday.
No successor has yet been named but the guessing games are
already well underway. ANN will keep you informed... especially as
to where the highly regarded Chew may next hang his hat.
This has the potential to be VERY interesting...
