ANN REALTIME REPORTING 03.27.09 1900 EDT: It's
official. Friday afternoon, President Barack Obama named Randolph
"Randy" Babbitt to be the next FAA administrator, subject to
confirmation by the US Senate.
"These two pilots have told their story to the world
since the remarkable events of January 15th, but at EAA AirVenture
they'll have the opportunity to talk in-person with fellow aviators
on how their training, planning and airmanship skills were tested.
There is perhaps no place better than Oshkosh where an audience
would understand the decision-making process that took place in the
cockpit that day and learn the lessons from these two pilots'
experiences. We eagerly look forward to welcoming them to
'aviation's family reunion' at Oshkosh this summer."
