Bruce Landsberg, a past president of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Air Safety Institute, is the new vice chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. Landsberg was sworn in Aug. 7 by Chairman Robert Sumwalt.

Landsberg is "a well-known general aviation safety advocate for decades" who also has held management positions with FlightSafety International and Cessna Aircraft Company, according to NTSB.

"Throughout my career, I have had a great appreciation for the work the NTSB does," Landsberg said. "It is an honor to join the NTSB in its pursuit of transportation safety in all modes of transportation."

Sumwalt said Landsberg's expertise and longstanding commitment to safety "will be invaluable assets. We welcome him to the NTSB."

According to the NTSB announcement, Landsberg has more than 6,000 hours piloting aircraft, holds an Airline Transport Pilot certificate and multiple flight instructor certificates, and served in the U.S. Air Force. His appointment as vice chairman is for a two-year term, and his term as an NTSB board member is for five years.

The board will be up to full strength shortly: A fifth member, Jennifer Homendy, who has been a Democratic staffer on the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, was confirmed July 24 by the U.S. Senate and is scheduled to join the board soon.
