managerial selection factors
(1) achieving results:
successful managers apply a variety of techniques to deliver results. they establish clear, measurable performance objectives for their unit and the people they manage. they adjust the way work is performed to meet changing conditions and demands. they make tough decisions to solve complex problems. they track costs of doing business; and, they make appropriate people & budget adjustments to achieve objectives. they understand their customers' requirements and focus on delivering high quality products and service to satisfy those requirements.
i have proven myself to be a results-oriented leader throughout my career with the faa as i ve progressed through numerous positions of increasing responsibilities culminating in my recent appointment to acting supervisory aviation safety inspector, an achievement in itself attained through my ability to clearly define, strategically facilitate and proactively steer operations and initiatives to generate optimal outcomes. over the past year, i took the personal initiative to go beyond my defined responsibilities to actively facilitate and collaborate in diverse projects leading to measurable improvements in diverse areas of aviation safety and resulting in recognition with a superior accomplishment cash award in july of this year, while concurrently managing all responsibilities of my position.
as an example, working closely with the federal bureau of investigations and the salt lake city police, i lent my expertise toward investigating and confirming pilot misconduct, resulting in revocation of both his medical and pilot certificates. i also recently played a key role in improving the accuracy and user-friendliness of faa order 8900.1 as an appointed member of a working group out of washington dc; recruited based on my experience level and detailed approach to tackle inefficiencies related to the this document s complexity. i invested numerous hours in conducting critical analysis of the document and we were collaboratively able to clearly identify issues including inconsistencies, redundancies and incomplete guidance as well as corrective measures to reduce time required in using the document while boosting data quality and effectiveness in supporting crucial safety objectives.
i have built a solid track record of generating results throughout my career. as a qualified expert witness and accident reconstruction expert, i have been instrumental in the outcomes of over 50 successful federal aviation accident trials by providing dynamic testimony. i have also contributed to the successful investigation of several major incidents including national airlines-pensacola, fl, pan american-kenner, la and air florida-washington d.c., and have effectively transcribed voice and aircraft flight data in support of major cases.

richard p. coxey aso-afs-08-b053-109047 msfs page 2 of 3
successful managers recognize that talented people working together accomplishes the work of the faa. they use teamwork effectively to achieve business results. they ensure equal employment opportunities in the workplace; and, they capitalize on available talent to enhance team performance. they recognize and reward high performance; and, they provide constructive feedback to employees to facilitate their development. they create an environment in which people thrive and accomplish their best.
in recognition of my dynamic leadership qualities, i was recently appointed acting supervisory aviation safety inspector, assuming increasing responsibility for providing decisive, results-oriented leadership in building and leading top performing teams. in addition to coordinating staff and overseeing performance, i effectively evaluate individual performance, capitalizing on opportunities not only to correct inefficiencies but to provide employees with opportunities for professional growth through ongoing development as well as supportive mentorship and feedback. since 2006, i have held similar responsibilities as an faa aviation safety inspector, delta cmo in atlanta, ga, where a major role has been to build top-performing teams by developing, customizing and delivering quality training programs to meet individual and group training and development needs. soon after joining the faa in the early 1970s, i was actively involved in developing personnel as an instructor pilot for faa headquarter pilots.
going back to my early years in the industry as a chief pilot with georgia airlines, my leadership abilities were recognized, and i was selected to spearhead far 121 commercial airline training, and moved forward as a flight instructor to provide practical flight instruction for private commercial, instrument and multi-engine students, again demonstrating strong leadership qualities and a talent for teaching and developing aviation professionals.
successful managers skillfully communicate and work with others. they communicate openly and honestly. they foster open communication and exchange of ideas and knowledge. they establish networks inside and outside their organization to foster agency objectives. they collaborate with others to achieve results; and, they handle emotionally charged or controversial issues responsibly. they lead with consistency, dignity, compassion and integrity.
as far back as my early years in the aviation industry with faa washington headquarters in washington d.c., my ability to communicate and build productive relationships with key contacts within air carrier, large aircraft commercial operation and air travel club associates was critical to ensuring compliance with policies, standards and procedures impacting operations. similarly, as aviation safety inspector based in miami, continual interface with multiple representatives of eastern, national and pan american airlines was vital to ground and flight training/testing and standards compliance. progressing to principal operations safety inspector, i built and maintained strong relationships with key stakeholders representing u.s. scheduled, supplemental, foreign flag, and commercial air carriers in order to facilitate successful certification inspections.
i have continually applied my dynamic communication and interpersonal relationship skills toward successfully building strategic relationships and facilitating open discussion and exchange of ideas in order to facilitate collaborative achievement of critical goals within the faa and aviation industry as a whole. having recently assumed responsibilities as acting supervisory aviation safety inspector, it is crucial that i establish, promote and maintain ongoing communications with field and regional affiliates as well as representatives throughout the aviation community in support of aviation safety objectives.
richard p. coxey aso-afs-08-b053-109047 msfs page 3 of 3
successful managers build a shared vision with others across their organization. they plan for changing trends that can affect operations. they change viewpoints, behavior and work methods in response to new information. they recover quickly from setbacks; and, they help others build realistic expectations toward organizational change. they demonstrate a positive attitude toward achieving results.
during much of my career in the aviation industry i have played an integral role in leading change. as a recent example, i served as team lead and active participant in a lean application workshop, working with faa flight standards training division to introduce lean practices supporting employees in defining and addressing waste. the purpose of this initiative was to define and implement strategies to facilitate measurable improvements in customer satisfaction, ease of compliance and maintainability, allowing internal customers to focus on critical issues directly supporting aviation safety.
our initial target was on streamlining and improving designated pilot examiner certification processes by applying lean thinking and value-stream mapping toward developing a current state map and drafting a comprehensive plan outlining proposed changes and timelines for future execution. as one of several team leads, we were able to apply lean principles toward analyzing the designated pilot examiner (dpe), create and critique a current state map, targeting waste and inefficiencies, and then produce a new state map of inspection and renewal phase. as a result, we found that we could reduce redundancies and overlapping work by as much as 40% by integrating the inspection and renewal processes. we also determined that unsuccessful retraining performance warranted revising practices to move directly to termination. further, we were able to clarify inefficiencies with 8900.1 and 8710.3 largely relating to conflicting and incomplete guidance, and found that we could improve efficiency to substantially reduce average lookup time.

knowledge, skills, and abilities
1. knowledge of rules, regulations, directives, and guidelines necessary to direct work priorities.
as an employee of the faa for approximately many years, from 1971-1983 and, again, from 2006-present, i have acquired and applied extensive hands-on experience in applying applicable policies and procedures in positions ranging from air traffic controller and pilot-in-command to principal operations safety inspector, and my current position as an aviation safety inspector.
currently, i use my vast knowledge of faa policies and procedures to facilitate safety programs supporting training, recordkeeping system, base/station facility, and en-route operations in compliance with directives. in multiple positions, i have been highly effective in implementing and enforcing vital faa policies, standards, programs, and procedure in support of maximizing operational performance. this knowledge includes the ability to proficiently interpret fars so that i can put them into action and achieve faa goals. as an example, as an aviation safety inspector with the faa for numerous years, i have effectively interpreted varied fars and applied my interpretations toward justifying rules and amendments to fars 61/ 91/121/ 123/ 127/135. while chief pilot with georgia airlines, i successfully steered training and operations of an far 121 commercial airline as well as far 135 air taxi and commuter operations, again demonstrating advanced knowledge of fars as well as the ability to interpret and apply them.
this, through ongoing professional development, i have consistently maintained
current knowledge of applicable guidelines. additionally, studies, such
as a certified faa supervisory course, have provided me with valuable knowledge
in policies and procedures. as of october of 2006, i had earned 24,700 of total
far flight time, piloting dc-10, b-756, b-737, a-300, and b727 single engine,
multi-engine prop and multi-engine turbo prop aircraft.
2. ability to present complex sensitive, administrative, technical, and other factual data orally or in written format.
as an faa aviation safety inspector, i have applied my ability to deliver factual information in quality written format in successfully defining far infractions through comprehensive analysis of varied operational components and then applying findings toward assessing situations, determining optimal responses, implementing enforcement actions, and then compiling, drafting and producing detailed final reports. similarly, in the capacities of principal operations safety inspector and air safety consultant, i have effectively evaluated data and investigative findings in order to compile and produce proactive written reports used by varied agencies/organizations in the areas of far and faa standards compliance. i have actively participated in numerous investigations of major aircraft accidents/incidents that required solid reporting skills,
successfully transcribing complex cockpit voice and aircraft flight data recordings in order to support investigations through quality written presentations.

ksa 2 continued
my oral communication skills have been evidenced in numerous capacities. as a trainer and instructor throughout the course of my career, i have consistently developed and delivered highly effective programs through effective presentation of complex, technical and highly detailed information/data. in a leadership capacity, i am continually interfacing with staff, peers and key stakeholders throughout the faa and aviation industry.
because of my extensive knowledge and experience in aviation safety, i have been called on as an expert witness in over 50 federal aviation-related trials. this requires a talent for effectively translating and communicating what can be excessively complex and/or technical information in a manner that can be clearly assimilated and understood by broad populations outside of the immediate aviation community, ranging from judicial representatives and attorneys to key stakeholders and the general public. i have further employed my strong communication skills toward serving as an air safety consultant.
3. knowledge of faa certification requirements and knowledge of certificate holder's programs and procedures.
with approximately 40 years of experience in the aviation industry, in multiple capacities, a thorough knowledge of faa certification requirements and related programs/procedures has been imperative to continually progressing while building a reputable career. having been in this industry for such an extensive amount of time, i have had the opportunity to participate in ongoing education and professional development while working in an environment where practical application of these requirements, programs and procedures has been a part of my responsibilities.
i was recently appointed acting supervisory aviation safety inspector, where a key component of these expanded responsibilities includes both administrative and technical direction of operations certificate management. in the capacity of a principal operations safety inspector and aviation safety inspector, i have focused on the operations component of operating certificates, working with all types of carriers as they apply to all aspects of airworthiness. i maintain a current knowledge of new and emerging directives, and am able to ensure full compliance.
as a trainer/instructor within the industry as well as an adjunct professor with embry-riddle aeronautical university, i have further demonstrated expertise in providing education in faa certification requirements.
to complement these qualifications, my personal academic background, which includes a masters of aeronautical science in aeronautical management as well as a ba in aeronautical administration.
