We'd like to congratulate Michael G. Whitaker, past advisory board member and long-time friend of the International Aviation Law Institute, who will be appointed by President Obama to become Deputy Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration. Mr. Whitaker was with Trans World Airlines from 1991 to 1994, before spending 15 years with United Airlines, rising to the level of Senior Vice President for Alliances, International, and Regulatory Affairs. Prior to this appointment, he had been working with InterGlobe Enterprises. He should prove to be an excellent appointment.
