Acting FAA administrator Billy Nolen is expected to leave the agency on Friday. Nolen was appointed as acting administrator in March 2022, following the resignation of Steve Dickson, the former head of FAA. Trottenberg has a long public sector career and previously served as New York City’s Transportation Commissioner, as a senior USDOT policy official under President Barack Obama, and as an aide in the U.S. Senate to Senator Charles Schumer. 


In March, Denver International Airport CEO Phil Washington withdrew his nomination to serve as FAA administrator after Republican criticism. The White House has not yet named a new nominee.
