The Frederick L. Feinberg Award is presented to the pilot or crew of a vertical flight aircraft who demonstrated outstanding skills or achievement during the preceding 18 months. The 2018 award was given to Mr. Prospero "Paco" Uybarreta, the chief test pilot of Martin Aircraft Company Ltd. in Christchurch, New Zealand. Uybarreta flight tested (and helped develop) the unique experimental Series 1 Jetpack, exploring the unknowns of a twin ducted fan, fly-by-wire/control vane, rotary-engine-powered personal VTOL aircraft.
