WASHINGTON, D.C. — Christopher Hart was sworn in Thursday for a second two-year term as vice chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
Hart has been involved in transportation safety for more than 30 years. In addition to the NTSB, he has served at the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
"I am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue to work in this area in an agency made up of people who are so dedicated to improving transportation safety," he said.
Hart's term as NTSB vice chairman ends on Aug. 24, 2013. He is concurrently serving a five-year term as a board member, which runs through Dec. 31, 2012. He also served as an NTSB board member from 1990 to 1993.
Earlier this month, Deborah Hersman was sworn in for a second term as NTSB chairman.
