Statement by Craig Fuller on Brian Delauter's Departure as Head of TSA’s Office of GA

October 5, 2011

"The choice of Brian Delauter – a pilot with a strong general aviation background – to run the Transportation Security Administration’s Office of General Aviation was an excellent decision. His leadership will be missed now that he has decided to return to the private sector, but we wish him great success in his new endeavor.

"We are hopeful that Administrator Pistole will build on the relationships Brian developed with general aviation industry and pilots by finding a successor with a similarly strong GA background."
