    • Abstract:
      On January 20, 1977, Jimmy (James E.) Carter became President of the United States. Brock Adams became his first secretary of transportation. John McLucas resigned as FAA Administrator on April 1, 1977, and LANGHORNE BOND [TERM: 05/04/77 – 01/20/81] succeeded him, becoming the seventh FAA Administrator. The son of a vice president of Pan American Airways, Bond had a law degree from the University of Virginia. He had been a member of the task force that developed the legislation establishing the Department of Transportation (DOT) and then served one-year appointments as a special assistant to the first DOT secretary and then as assistant administrator for public affairs in DOT’s Urban Mass Transportation Administration. He left federal service in 1969 to become executive director of the National Transportation Center, a nonprofit research organization in Pittsburgh that managed bus technology projects for transit authorities. In March 1973 Bond became the Illinois Secretary of Transportation, the position he held when selected for the FAA position.
