Biography

As one of less than a hundred people who have actually commanded a human space mission, Colonel Rick Searfoss speaks on leadership, teamwork, and personal performance with authority born of in-depth personal experience. He has piloted two Space Shuttle missions and commanded a third, with over 939 hours in space and 5400 hours flying time in 61 different types of aircraft. His first space flight in 1993 set the record for the longest duration Space Shuttle mission. In 1996, he piloted Atlantis to the Russian space station Mir.

With the STS-90 "Neurolab" mission on Columbia in 1998, Colonel Searfoss commanded the most complex scientific research space mission ever flown, with unparalleled mission success. He has over twenty-five years experience as a leader in some of the most demanding team endeavors possible--human space flight, test flying, and tactical military aviation. Unsurpassed credibility and experience coupled with out-of-this-world speaking skills!

Colonel Searfoss was the number one graduate in his United States Air Force Academy class overall, academically, in engineering, and in the Aeronautical Engineering major. He later earned a graduate degree from the California Institute of Technology on a National Science Foundation Fellowship. He was Outstanding Young Men of America, distinguished graduate of the U.S. Air Force Fighter Weapons (Topgun) School, and U.S. Naval Test Pilot School. His many awards include F-111 Instructor Pilot of the Year, Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory Excellence in Turbine Engine Design Award, Distinguished Flying Cross, Defense Superior Service Medal, and NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal all top results through dedicated effort and commitment. He brings that same dedication to enthusiastically sharing the principles of success with every group he meets.

Beyond the unique professional experiences he has enjoyed, Colonel Searfoss' incredibly supportive wife and three daughters keep him focused on what is truly important: faith, family, and service beyond self. His varied outside interests include running, backpacking, model airplanes, soccer, science fiction, and classical music. With compelling firsthand examples from richly rewarding professional and personal experiences, he speaks from the heart to teach, motivate, enlighten, and uplift audiences and fulfill his personal mission: "Sharing the achievement, teamwork, and leadership lessons of human space flight while bringing the wonder of Space to Earth for all to enjoy."
