Hasard Lee is a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot who began his career flying the F-16, where he was selected as the “Top Instructor Pilot of the Year” for the Air Force’s largest Combat Wing. As a flight commander, he led his pilots into combat during one of the most intense periods during the War in Afghanistan. There he flew over eighty combat missions and became the only fighter pilot to ever fly two different types of jets into combat on the same day while supporting troops under fire. Hasard was then hand-picked to fly the F-35, the most advanced and expensive weapons system in history, which was still in development at the time. During his last role on active duty, he became the Chief of Training Systems for the largest training base in the world, leading the development of new technology and teaching methods to train future fighter pilots.
Hasard’s first book, The Art of Clear Thinking, was a #2 Wall Street Journal Bestseller. In the book, he distills what he’s learned during his career flying some of the Air Force’s most advanced aircraft. With gripping firsthand accounts from his time as a fighter pilot and fascinating turning
points throughout history, Hasard reveals powerful decision-making principles that can be used in business and in life.
