Captain Sullenberger Talks to HWA About “SULLY” Movie, Directed by Clint Eastwood & Starring Tom Hanks  

Secure your event now to capture the excitement leading up to the September 9, 2016 movie release of Sully, Captain Sullenberger's personal story about landing Flight 1549 in the Hudson — a major motion picture directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks as Captain Sullenberger. 

Were you one of the millions of people who listened to this recording of Captain Sullenberger’s death-defying landing of Flight 1549 on the Hudson? His calm and measured answers to the air traffic controller were almost eerie. Was this a man who had come to terms that there was no way out? Or was this a leader, who was so well prepared for a harrowing crisis such as this, that even though his blood pressure and pulse shot to explosive levels, he was focused on working with his crew to land his plane safely on the less than 208 seconds?

I can assure you that listening to Captain Sullenberger in person, and hearing the unedited version of the recording will leave you holding your breath, as you hang on every word. 

Captain Sullenberger shared with us that Flight 1549 is not just an experience that defined him as a leader; it is proof positive that flawless execution comes through years of focus and preparation for such an event. 

When it comes to being prepared for the ultimate challenge, there is no better speaker than Captain Sullenberger, and you will be in sheer awe to meet the man who exemplifies the kind of leadership and character that we would hope every leader could possess in a time of crisis.

"I can see why he became such an iconic figure. He’s the kind of guy that can walk into a room and instill confidence that everything’s under control."  

Clint Eastwood

"Rave reviews from audience members included: So timely, so powerful, so authentic...Great work. This will leave a mark! ... We more than loved him. He speaks our language."
