Sullenberger will return to the cockpit

The pilot who guided a US Airways flight into New York's Hudson River will return to flying regular flights along with new duties as a management pilot.

The airline says Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger will be part of its flight operations safety management team. US Airways said it was still working out the details of his return to flight duties.

On Jan. 15 Sullenberger ditched the Airbus A320 in the Hudson after a collision with geese killed power in both engines minutes after takeoff from LaGuardia airport. All 155 people on the plane survived.

First Officer Jeffrey Skiles said in March that he would return to the cockpit.
