The White House nominated a former Delta Air Lines executive as permanent head of the Federal Aviation Administration just a week after the agency grounded Boeing's 737 MAX fleet after a fatal Ethiopian Airlines crash. Steve Dickson was tapped to be the agency's next chief. The agency has been run by acting chief Daniel Elwell since January 2018. Dickson was responsible at Delta for helping to train the airline's 13,000 pilots and make sure the company was in compliance with regulations. He is a graduate of the Air Force and a former F-15 fighter pilot who has flown a variety of aircraft. (Updates to reflect the White House announcing the nomination.)
