United States: FAA administrator resigns in March

Dickson: "I want to devote my full time and attention to my family"

The current administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Steve Dickson, has resigned. His decision will not take immediate effect, but will leave the position at the end of March 2022. This was announced by the same executive in an email sent to employees. The missive also contained the reasons for the decision: "To devote all my time and attention" to his family. 

"As I wrote in my letter to President Joe Biden, it is time to go home. Although my heart is heavy, I am tremendously proud of everything we have accomplished together over the past several years. The agency is in a better place than it was two years ago, and we are positioned for great success. It has been the privilege of a lifetime to serve alongside you", he said in the letter. 

Dickson has been with the aviation industry for 43 years. He was appointed in 2019 to lead FAA by then-US President Donald Trump. Since the start of the pandemic, the authority has faced many obstacles: from a sharp drop in air travel to thousands of reports for unruly passengers, to the most recent rollout of the 5G networks' connectivity service.
