  • Abstract:
    On March 3, 1961, NAJEEB HALABY [TERM: 03/03/61 – 07/01/65] became the second FAA Administrator. A lawyer with significant experience as a military and civilian pilot, and a Kennedy family friend, Halaby took over an agency reputed, after just two years in existence, to be one of the strongest in the U.S. Government. During the new administrator’s swearing in ceremony, President Kennedy asked Halaby to define the technical, economic, and military aviation objectives of the federal government, for the next decade and for a broad spectrum of aviation interests. Five days later, Kennedy requested the administrator to also conduct a scientific, engineering review of aviation facilities and related research and development (R&D) and to prepare a long-range plan to ensure efficient and safe control of all air traffic within the United States. To undertake the resulting studies (called Project Horizon and Project Beacon, respectively), Administrator Halaby quickly created two separate task forces comprised of recognized experts in aeronautic and related technologies.
