U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary E. Peters released a statement in support of the nomination. "As a former fighter pilot with over three decades of aviation experience, Bobby Sturgell has worked tirelessly as Deputy FAA Administrator to fight congestion and modernize our aviation system while preserving the safest period in aviation on record," she said. I urge the Senate to swiftly consider Bobby's nomination and confirm him to a full five-year term."

Prior to joining the NTSB, Sturgell was a flight operations supervisor and line pilot for United Airlines, flying the B-757 and B-767 in both domestic and international operations. He was also an attorney and has practiced aviation law at the Washington, D.C. law firm Shaw Pittman.

Sturgell is also a former naval aviator and an instructor at the Navy Fighter Weapons School Topgun. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Virginia School of Law.
