President Joe Biden will nominate Denver International Airport CEO Philip Washington to be the next FAA administrator.

Washington would replace acting FAA administrator Billy Nolen, who has filled the position since March 31, when Steven Dickson retired. 

Prior to taking the CEO job at Denver's airport a year ago, Washington was the CEO of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan District. 

He would take over an FAA that is grappling with several issues, including air traffic control staffing shortages, how to safely allow telecom companies to fully implement 5G WiFi transmissions around airports, and shaken public confidence stemming from lax oversight of Boeing's 737 Max certification process.  

Washington must be confirmed by the Senate prior to taking the FAA's top post.
