Vector Flying Training Services, a joint company founded by Bombardier, KBR and URS to compete for a UK military training contract, has named Sir Malcolm Pledger as its new chairman. Pledger has nearly 40 years experience with the Royal Air Force, starting as a university cadet and ascending to commander in chief of the RAF Logistics Command. Vector FTS is competing for the UK Military Flying Training System program, a £10 billion contract to train navy, army and air force pilots in jet trainers, transports and helicopters. Pledger joined Vector partner KBR, a subsidiary of military contractor Halliburton, earlier this year as senior defense advisor.
