I have 35 years of experience and specialize in the field of aviation with specific knowledge in the areas of operations, technology and policy. I have published on such topics as technology policy, air traffic control, privatization and safety management. I have testified on DC-10 landing gear systems, avionics systems configuration and value. As the head of aviation programs at three major universities I created on-site extension programs at major airlines and advanced the programs into research based activities. As a consultant to the government of Abu Dhabi, I wrote operating regulations for the newly established Department of Transportation.
