Christopher Hart Confirmed as NTSB Chairman

The International Air & Transportation Safety Bar Association congratulates Christopher Hart on his confirmation by the U.S. Senate as the 13th Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).

Chairman Hart is eminently qualified to lead the NTSB during this transformative period in aviation. He served as a member of the NTSB from 1990 to 1993 and from 2009 to the present. He also served as the deputy director for air traffic safety oversight and as assistant administrator for aviation safety with the Federal Aviation Administration. He holds a law degree from Harvard University and master’s and bachelor’s degrees in aerospace engineering from Princeton University. He is a commercially certificated multi-engine pilot and holds an instrument rating.

Chairman Hart was the key note speaker at IATSBA’s Joseph T. Nall Award Dinner in November and we are thankful for his support for our association over the years.

IATSBA is dedicated to aviation safety and to the fair administration of the federal aviation rules and regulations. Our members include leading government and private aviation attorneys and we are thrilled with the choice of Chairman Hart, who we believe has the right stuff to improve on the NTSB’s remarkable legacy.
