Landsberg has had a long and distinguished career in aviation safety. He served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, and subsequently worked in safety-related positions with Cessna Aircraft Co., FlightSafety International, and AOPA’s Air Safety Institute.

The White House announcement of Landsberg’s nomination follows last month’s appointment of Robert Sumwalt to chair the NTSB.

“Bruce’s extensive knowledge and expertise in the safety arena are well-suited for this important position and I applaud President Trump for selecting him to serve on the board,” said AOPA President and CEO Mark Baker.
