The NTSB has selected Jeff Rich and Hector Casanova as the Regional Directors of Aviation Safety for the Southwest Regional Office (Gardena, California), and the South Central Regional Office (Arlington, Texas), respectively. In these positions, they will oversee all aviation accident and incident investigations handled by these offices.

"Mr. Rich and Mr. Casanova each bring a vast amount of experience as investigators and a commitment to aggressively pursue aviation safety." said Ellen Engleman, Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.
