ALEXANDRIA, Virginia — Flight Safety Foundation today announced that Danny C. Ho, chief executive vice president at EVA Air, has been elected to the Foundation’s Board of Governors. Ho, a longtime member and former chairman of the Foundation’s International Advisory Committee (IAC), is responsible for corporate safety, security and environment management, and oversees various functions in flight operations at EVA.
“I am extremely pleased that Danny has agreed to serve on the Board of Governors,” said Jon Beatty, FSF president and CEO. “Over the years, Danny has made significant contributions to aviation safety at EVA and in his role on the IAC, and it would be hard to find anyone more qualified to serve on our board.”
