NEW YORK (AP) — The pilot who safely brought down that plane in the Hudson River has landed at CBS News.

The network announced Thursday that Captain Chesley Sullenberger III, also known as Sully, has been named as Aviation and Safety Expert.

In his new role, Sullenberger will provide analysis of aviation safety, contributing to all CBS News broadcasts and platforms.

CBS News president David Rhodes said, "Sully is a genuine hero."

It was on Jan. 15, 2009, that Sullenberger and his crew safely guided US Airways Flight 1549 to an emergency water landing in New York's frigid Hudson River. His quick response to the loss of two of the plane's engines saved the lives of all 155 people aboard.

Logging 20,000 hours of flight service, Sullenberger retired from US Airways in March 2010.
