Ed Pozzi of United Airlines has agreed to accept the position of Chair of the MARPA Air Carrier Committee.
Ed began his aviation career with United Airlines as a Customer Service Representative at Long Island MacArthur Airport in 1984 handling all aspects of airport operations. In 1990 he was promoted to engineering as an engineer in the 757/767 Fleet Technical Service group providing technical support for aircraft systems and interiors.
Ed has nearly 30 years of experience in the industry, all with United Airlines, holding a variety of managerial positions within engineering as well as representing United Airlines as the first airline employee to accept an internship with a Presidential-appointed Member of the NTSB in Washington, DC
Ed has demonstrated exemplary leadership as a change agent reinventing the PMA process by applying LEAN principles to many aspects of PMA development and approvals. This has resulted in PMA cost savings for United’s Technical Operations. He has also developed and implemented data mining methods to identify problematic, high cost, high usage parts for new PMA opportunities.
Please join me in welcoming Ed as the new Chair!!
Ed has some exciting plans for the Committee. I hope all of our air carrier members will all be able to join him at the Air Carrier Committee Meeting on October 23 (part of the MARPA Annual Conference) as well as the brainstorming session he is planning to examine a lobbying effort aimed at producing an air carrier PMA-approval-checklist that would be published as an FAA Advisory Circular. Information on these events can be found at the MARPA Conference Agenda, and the details will be updated as more information becomes known.
