NTPS Instructor Andy Edgell has been selected to be appointed to the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Established on 4 June 1917 by King George V, The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry, rewarding those making distinguished or notable national contributions in civil and military fields. The British monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is Sovereign of the Order, and appoints all other members of the Order. The Order’s motto is For God and the Empire.

On 27 December 2019, the Queen's New Year honors list was published in the official newspaper of the Crown, The Gazette. Therein contained the announcement that Andy had been awarded the honor of Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his contribution and dedication to the F-35 flight test program while serving as a Test Pilot on the F-35 Integrated Test Force at Naval Air Station Patuxent River.

Andy and his family will attend an Investiture ceremony at a Royal residence in the coming months to collect awards from The Queen or another Member of the Royal Family.

Congratulations Andy and Family!!
