Deputy U.S. Transportation Secretary Polly Trottenberg is expected to be named Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) next interim leader, two sources told Reuters on Sunday.

The source cautioned that appointment wasn’t final and could change, the sources said. The Wall Street Journal first reported the news.

Acting FAA administrator Billy Nolen is expected to leave the agency on Friday, officials told Reuters last week.

Trottenberg did not respond to a May 31 email from Reuters last Wednesday asking about a rumor that she could be tapped to take the interim job running the FAA.
