Sully Sullenberger

Sullenberger in 2022 Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger III (born January 23, 1951) is an American retired fighter pilot, diplomat, and airline pilot. He is best known for his actions as captain of US Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009, when he ditched the plane, landing on the Hudson River after both engines were disabled by a bird strike. All 155 people aboard survived. After the Hudson landing, Sullenberger became an outspoken advocate for aviation safety and helped develop new protocols for flight safety. He served as the co-chairman, along with his co-pilot on Flight 1549, Jeffrey Skiles, of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA)'s Young Eagles youth introduction-to-aviation program from 2009 to 2013.

Sullenberger retired from US Airways in 2010, after 30 years as a commercial pilot. In 2011, he was hired by CBS News as an aviation and safety expert.

Sullenberger is the co-author, with Jeffrey Zaslow, of the ''New York Times'' bestseller ''Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters'', a memoir of his life and of the events surrounding Flight 1549. His second book, ''Making a Difference: Stories of Vision and Courage from America's Leaders'', was published in 2012. He was ranked second in ''Time''s ''Top 100 Most Influential Heroes and Icons of 2009'', after Michelle Obama.

In 2021, President Joe Biden announced he would nominate Sullenberger as U.S. representative to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) with the rank of ambassador. He was confirmed by unanimous consent in the Senate and served in that role from February 3 to July 1, 2022. Provided by Wikipedia
