Footage has emerged of an official with the Federal Aviation Administration complaining that the Flight Program Operations division was "white male dominated," and asking what could be done to make it "representative of the whole country."
While FAA Acting Deputy Chief Operating Officer Angela McCullough made those comments in April 2022, recent developments in the airline industry have revealed that equity-focused policies are becoming more and more common, perhaps at the risk of passenger safety.
The footage, obtained by Matt Walsh, begins with McCullough saying she wants to see more employees go from "ramp to cockpit," a pathway typical at many airlines where people work their way up through the various positions associated with air travel.
McCullough then tells the managers with her on the call they need to tackle "internal bias ... in Flight Ops," and "talk about what the future could look like." She comments on the overwhelming number of white males in the Flight Program Operations division, saying it should be "representative of the whole country."
She acknowledged that it was an "uncomfortable" topic but said everyone should be "uncomfortable together and do the right things."
In response, Vice President of Flight Program Operations David Riggins calls McCullough's comments "great," and says her ideas are something people at the agency "really need to spend some time digging through and thinking about."
The issue of pilot qualification has made it back into the news as of late, and according to Walsh, several members of the industry have told him that "[Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion] is endangering the public and distracting them from their work."
Among the examples cited is that of a trans-identifying pilot at Delta Airlines who has been promoted despite having "repeatedly received bad reviews from captains."
"Had this not been a transgender pilot," the source said, "the individual would likely not have successfully completed their probationary period."
Walsh also drew attention to the FAA's "eFast" program, which "prioritizes 'Indian Tribal Owned corporations' and 'Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Businesses' for billions of dollars in critical grant funding."
"It's only a matter of time until this combination of incompetence and anti-white discrimination leads to a major air disaster," he warned. "The aviation industry needs a completely new mandate — one that's focused solely on safety — before a lot of people die."
