Hersman is stepping down during her third term as NTSB chairman to lead the National Safety Council. The safety board is helping probe the disappearance of a Malaysian Air plane. As chairman, Hersman has focused on distraction in drivers, pilots and other transportation operators and presided over the longest period without a crash in the history of U.S. commercial aviation.
