Source Of 'Draft Sully' Petition Revealed

FAA Whistleblowers Alliance Was Not A Babbitt Fan

The FAA Whistleblowers Alliance (FWA) has come forward to take credit for the White House petition to draft retired US Airways Captain Chesley Sullenburger (pictured) for the position of FAA Administrator. An official FWA statement on the group's blog says, in part, "the FAA, we are sad to say, is a broken agency.

"The FAA has consistently ranked at the bottom of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) annual survey of federal agencies that asks government employees about their job environment and satisfaction. This is the largest safety agency in the DOT and the message coming from its own employees is that things aren’t going well.

"The FWA has long been bringing the FAA’s internal cultural problems to light with little to show for its efforts, other than bureaucratic lip service which quickly becomes yesterday’s forgotten news.

"Sully...by all accounts is not controlled by the Washington, DC lobbyists and has spent his professional career relying on and promoting the safety of the air transportation system. His pre-Hudson River landing resume speaks volumes about his professionalism and his efforts to contribute his knowledge to others. The FWA believes he would deal honestly and effectively with the uncomfortable cultural truths hiding behind the FAA logo."
