Las Vegas, Nevada
Miracle on the Hudson
Captain Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger has flown thousands of routine flights over the course of his accomplished career. One flight, in January 2009, catapulted this extraordinarily well-trained, prepared and modest professional into one of the most admired people of our time.
A special event for Power Systems Technical University attendees
On Wednesday, October 31, following an evening dinner, enjoy being up-close-and-personal as Captain Sullenberger speaks and takes questions from the audience on what happened during the "Miracle on the Hudson," the lessons learned from his life that prepared him to handle this unprecedented crisis, and his reflections on the current state of the American airline industry. His story has inspired audiences to find their passion in life, prepare for anything, and learn to rely on their teams as he did on January 15, 2009.
