Threshold Aviation Group Founder Named to Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee Designated Pilot
DiLullo to join industry experts to find a way to alleviate the pilot shortage in the U.S.
By: Threshold Aviation Group
Earlier this year the FAA assigned ARAC to review all regulations and policies related to designated pilot examiners appointed under section 183.23 of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations. The working group will focus on the processes and requirements by which the FAA selects, trains, and deploys individuals as designated pilot examiners, and provide recommendations with respect to the regulatory and policy changes necessary to ensure an adequate number of designated pilot examiners are deployed and available to perform their duties. The final recommendation report is due to the ARAC in 2020.
"I am extremely honored to have been chosen for this working group," said Mark DiLullo Founder and CEO of Threshold Aviation Group. "The aviation industry is growing exponentially and making sure that we have the best trained pilots to serve our industry is paramount. It's something I'm proud to be a part of."
DiLullo has been distinguished for 30 years in the aviation industry with several unique and prestigious assignments held by few. He served as the NASA Chief Pilot for the High Ice Water Content ("HIWC") Scientific Research Project where his responsibilities included the oversight of extensive modifications to a Gulfstream G-II Research Aircraft. Additionally, he was responsible for the crew's training and mission readiness exercises.
He holds an Airline Transport Pilot Certification with Type Ratings in thirty different model aircraft, including Boeing B747-4, B747-8, Gulfstream - G-650, G-550, G-V, G-IV, G-1159, G-100 and Bombardier - CL-600, Falcon 900 to name a few.
