Dale Feddersen, an experienced pilot who has been a KBR employee for over 30 years, has been named 2018 U.S. Marine Corps Contractor Tester of the Year by the National Defense Industrial Association for leading a test pilot squadron for USMC aircraft.

Feddersen served as the lead pilot for the Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Two One (HX-21), which includes aircrew, engineers and other KBR pilots who assessed the Sikorsky VH-92A helicopter, the next helicopter model to be utilized to transport leading U.S. officials, including the president and vice president, KBR said Tuesday.

“Moments like these are a reflection on all of us and the hard work that we do to protect those who serve,“ said Byron Bright, president of KBR’s U.S. government services business.

Feddersen, who spent over 50 years in government flight test programs, also handles the testing of modifications to the VH-60N and VH-3D helicopters as well as related simulators and trainers operated by the HMX-1 squadron.

His award marks the seventh time a KBR employee won NDIA Tester of the Year since 2004.
