An instant may have transformed Captain Sullenberger into an American hero, but the pilot has devoted a lifetime to keeping airline passengers safe and secure

Since Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger performed the astonishing feat now known as the “Miracle on the Hudson,” he’s been speaking out about safety within the aviation industry as well as how to best improve health practices. Now that he has more of a platform, he uses it to increase awareness about certain procedures and act as a mouthpiece for the industry.

Sully says, “I learned to fly 50 years ago, and the Wright Brothers first flew 114 years ago this December. So I’ve been involved in aviation for 44 percent of its entire history, and I know what works and what doesn’t. Now I just have a greater voice about things I’ve cared about my entire life.”
