Mary Schapiro

Is this lady, the latest Obama Cabinet appointment, the same lady who once served in the FAA?

I seem to remember a lot of aviation people were criticizing a lady who led the organization several years ago but there is nothing in Schapiro’s resume stating FAA service nor is she listed as an administrator.

Who do I have her confused with?

I just looked up her bio and I didn’t find anything connecting her to the FAA.

Jane Garvey

Mary Schiavo. Was the IG for the DOT. Called the FAA the “Tombstone Agency.”

Never with Pan Am. I just think it was a great airline, especially prior to the 1970’s.

I remember looking at their timetables (still have some) and see flights 811 and 812. The routed between LA and Hong Kong the long way - via the South Pacific, Australia, and Indonesia!
