'Sully' Sullenberger keynotes HFES 54th Annual Meeting
Date:9/9/2010

SANTA MONICA, CARetired US Airways Captain Chesley B. "Sully" Sullenberger III will be the keynote speaker during the Opening Plenary Session of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society's 54th Annual Meeting in San Francisco. Sullenberger, who masterfully landed Flight 1549 on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, will address how preparation, training, and leadership make all the difference when confronting a challenge. "Preparing for Excellence: Leading Your Team to Success" will be presented the morning of Tuesday, September 28, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, Embarcadero Center.

"As a lifelong safety advocate, I clearly understand the critical importance of designing systems to assign to people what they do best, and to machines, what is appropriate for them to do," Sullenberger said. "I know from long personal experience how vital a task this is in aviation, particularly as newer aircraft incorporate increasing levels of automation. I look forward to speaking to the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society on this and other topics in our ongoing efforts to achieve the highest level of safety, performance, and compatibility in every area in which people and machines interact."

Although many know about Sullenberger's heroic actions on January 15, 2009, few have an understanding of the depth of his preparation, and how lives depended on his training every day. From his early career as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force, to his ongoing work in commercial aviation as a pilot and safety trainer, Sullenberger's life-long pursuit of learning and investing in himself shows the importance of education and preparedness, and illustrates that true leaders must always lead by example. He also will address the importance of organizational culture and how best to allow for human factors when promoting safety.

Prior to Sullenberger's address, HFES President Kathleen L. Mosier will present "Human Factors in Aviation: A Brief (and Selecti
