Let us assume an ATP, one with decades of experience in a variety of aircraft for a single company. Does this person have the management experience and background to deal with a bureaucracy the size of the FAA? We're talking working contractors such as Boeing, Lockmart, Northrop, etc as well as civil service (roughly 48,000) and Congress? Plus working with the current and/or next Secretary of Transportation and the DOD? Next question - what qualifications do you want in the next FAA administrator?
