Alaska Air Group today announced the election of Thomas Nunn as vice president of safety. Nunn will oversee all aspects of the safety programs at Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air.

For all of you at Alaska, your new VP of safety came from Frontier first and then was the COO of Lynx Aviation a wholly owned susidiary of Frontier. All I can say is GOOD RIDANCE for us and how unfortunate for you. He would sell your mothers soul to the devil if he had the chance. Not pilot friendly at all!
Good luck!

Director of Safety's do NOT have to be pilots.

Not saying I agree with the rule...but that's the rule.

That's OK. If he really tries to implement safety programs, he'll get fired.

No he is not a pilot, he dislikes them and thinks that they are all overpaid Prima Donnas.
Vice President of Safety. What a joke!

He was our vice prez of aviation SECURITY when he got the nod to go run Lynx, I dont even know if he knows how to read a balance sheet. Extremely disliked at Frontier by the pilot group, and I think it's safe to say by the Lynxs cats as well. I think he got asked to look for another job.

Seems to me that this was the exact response when
the latest and greatest was hired as vp of safety from NWA and now he's "left" the company.

This place is all about the dog and pony show, nothing more. I'll let the banners and slogans that say "to be #1 in safety and compliance" and "flight safety, job one" speak for itself. BARF.................

See the problem here is you guys misread the quote because you misplace the emphasis. You thought it was "We want to be #1 in SAFETY and compliance." What they meant was, "We want to be #1 in safety and COMPLIANCE." Sort of like "If the minimum wasn't good enough, it wouldn't be the minimum."

But its happened before. You thought Bill Ayer said, "Nothing is too good for Alaska pilots." What he meant was "Nothing IS too good for Alaska pilots."

See the difference?
