Nominee for F.A.A. Post Withdraws From Consideration
In a statement Saturday night, Cruz said Washington's lack of necessary experience was obvious. "Given the significant challenges facing the FAA, this wasn't the time for an administrator who needed on-the-job training," he said. "The Biden administration must now quickly name someone to head the FAA who has an extensive aviation background, can earn widespread bipartisan support in the Senate, and will keep the flying public safe."

P
resident Biden’s nominee to lead the Federal Aviation Administration, Phillip A. Washington, has withdrawn from consideration for the job, according to the White House.

Mr. Washington’s Republican critics in the Senate had argued that he lacked sufficient aviation experience, and they raised questions about his connection to a corruption investigation in Los Angeles.

His withdrawal came shortly after the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation said it would delay its vote on Mr. Washington’s nomination, which had been scheduled for Wednesday.

Abdullah Hasan, a spokesman for the White House, said that Mr. Washington had the right qualifications and experience to run the F.A.A.

“Unfortunately, an onslaught of unfounded Republican attacks on Mr. Washington’s service and experience irresponsibly delayed this process, threatened unnecessary procedural hurdles on the Senate floor, and ultimately have led him to withdraw his nomination today,” Mr. Hasan said in a statement to The New York Times.

Something as important to the safety of the American people requires competence. Sadly Mr. Washington had to be embarrassed into withdrawing his nomination. 


For those who question why it is important:

Seems he had the right qualifications for the Biden Check The Block Administration not for the F.A.A.

Thank God that a few independents in the Senate put a stop to it.

"Abdullah Hasan, a spokesman for the White House, said that Mr. Washington had the right qualifications and experience to run the F.A.A."

What are the right qualifications?  Checked a box or two and served as the head of Brandon's transportation transition team?

What are the right qualifications? 

It's only 8:42 AM EST and that might just be the question of the day.

Anyone?

Also know as "the beaver."

Let us not forget Biden's last three judicial nominees. One couldn't explain what a woman was. The other two hadn't read the Constitution.

Not only are hiring guidelines are being reduced, the but the whole training processes need to be revised and updated. Not so much in commercial aviation, but in general aviation where supposedly qualified pilots continue to crash with regularity. One only has to look at the NTSB's monthly aviation accident reports.
