MJOHN P. (JACK) REEDER is Chief of the Terminal Configured Vehicle Program at the NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia. A native of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, he is a graduate of the University of Michi~an in 1938 with a B,S. degree in Aeronautical Engineering.
Following 4-1/2 years of wind-tunnel research, he was trained by NACA/Langley as a research pilot and flew in that capacity with NACA/NASA for about 25 years, He was active in the early development of handling qualities requirements for military and civil airplanes and in the development of fixes and improvements to World War II aircraft.
He performed early exploration of transonic phenomena and their effects on aircraft characteristics, and he was a pioneer in the exploration of the effects of sweep-back on the low speed characteristics of aircraft, He is best known, probably, for his pioneering in rotary wing and V/STOL aircraft aerodynamics, performance and handling characteristics.
In his long association with flight research, he has served as Head of Flight Operations, as Assistant Chief of the Flight Mechanics and Technology Division and as Chief of the Flight Research Division. He most recently managed the increasingly important Terminal Configured Vehicle Program which he had initiated while Chief of the Flight Research Division. He retired on July 31, 1980 after 42 years with NACA/NASA.
Reeder's research pilot experience has been accumulated in some 232 different single and multiengine, civil and military, land and sea aircraft types, 37 of which have been jet airplane types, 40 have been fighter types, 60 have been rotary wing types including British, French, and German, and 8 have been VTOL airplane types including British and Canadian.
Research with P-47 types involved propeller efficiencies, landing qualities and high Mach dive and recovery.
Reeder is a Fellow of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, a Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautic's (AIAA), and Honorary Fellow of the American Helicopter Society (AHS), and a founder member of the Twirly Birds who soloed helicopters before V-J Day, 1945
He has been awarded the NASA outstanding Leadership Medal, the NASA Exceptional Service Medal, the Octave Chanute Award of the AIAA, the Burroughs Test Pilot Award presented by the Flight Safety Foundation, the Wright Brothers Medal of the Society of Automotive Engineers, and the Newbery Medal of Argentina.

Dr. John Reeder returns as the most powerful man at the festival - the balloonmeister! Reeder, a longtime local chiropractor and professional hot air balloon pilot, has the task of coordinating the launches and has to make the decision if weather conditions are suitable for a launch. Last year, five of six scheduled launches were able to get off the ground.
"When you're flying, you get the sense that you're floating," said Reeder, who has been flying for around 25 years.
