Sean D. Tucker is one of the best aerobatic pilots in the world and it’s really hard to understand why anyone is willing to risk his life in breathtaking maneuvers. Well, aerobatics is what Sean loves the most and his level of professionalism and discipline is unprecedented. Sean started his career in airshows worldwide in the mid-70s and he has won numerous aerobatic competitions. Achieving such a level of outstanding skills requires more than just a strong head. Sean practices his airshow routine three times a day and undergoes a rigorous physical training schedule that sounds like the worst nightmare for real couch potatoes: He works out more than 340 days per year! Sean explains why: “I like to think that I bring the fans’ dreams of flying into the plane with me and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in the cockpit. That’s why I train so hard to keep a finely tuned edge.” Apart from being an extraordinary aerobatic pilot, Sean is also an inspiration to many people all over the world. And to give him even more credit, more than half of Sean’s maneuvers have never been copied by another aerobatic pilot! For more please check out
