He started his aviation career with Douglas Aircraft in Santa Monica, Calif.

In World War Il, he joined the Army's air cadet program and won his wings as a fighter pilot. With the 81st Fighter Group, stationed in Hawaii, he flew P-51s and P-47s. After the war, he remained in the service three more years, just for the opportunity to fly the new jets. He became an engineering test pilot for the Air Force, testing new systems as they became available for jet aircraft. In the early 1950s, he returned to the United States from England to become chief test pilot and manager of flight test operations for GE.

He operated out of Edwards Air Force Base in California. He joined the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, and was elected a fellow in the society for his many contributions to the science of flight. He tested GE's powerful J-79 jet fighter engine. "It was incredibly dangerous work," Mr. Kennedy said.

"The F-4 became a dominant aircraft, and Roy Pryor was prominent in helping us develop its engine. He had the technical ability to understand planes and engines. "That was a unique era. All the new (supersonic) developments were coming out of Edwards. Mr.
