FAA gains administrator, promotes Huerta

WASHINGTON, 10 Jan. 2013. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood has administered the oath of office to Michael Huerta, the 17th Federal Aviation Administrator.

“Administrator Huerta's swearing-in was a momentous occasion for the Federal Aviation Administration, for Michael and his family, for the aviation industry, and for the nation,” LaHood describes. “As Deputy Administrator and as Acting Administrator, Michael has managed a number of challenges over the past couple of years—with tenacity, skill, and diplomacy. And as its new leader, I know he will ensure an even stronger future for the FAA and everyone who flies in our nation’s skies.”

“I want to see us eliminate every vestige of risk in our aviation system and raise the bar even higher as the safest aviation system in the world,” Huerta said during the ceremony.

Huerta will be integral to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implementing NextGen, the Next Generation Air Transportation System. “NextGen is our cutting-edge program that will enable more on-time, fuel-efficient flights—a win-win situation for airlines and travelers alike. And he recently established a new organization within the agency to focus on implementing future major technology programs,” LaHood continues.
