David Hook

Originally from LaGrande, Oregon, “Dave” Hook grew up in the Seattle, Washington area on Bainbridge Island. After graduating high school he won an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy. There he served as a cadet soaring instructor and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Astronautical Engineering. Upon commissioning as a 2nd Lieutenant, Dave went to pilot training and earned his first choice of aircraft, the C-130 Hercules. During his career Dave flew over 4,000 hours in many different aircraft and earned his Master of Arts Degree in Acquisition and Procurement Management from Webster University. As the U.S. Air Attaché in West Sub-Saharan Africa he not only flew special air missions throughout Africa, but also worked airport security for President Clinton’s visit to Accra, Ghana in 1998. Finally, he served nearly 6 years as an Air Commando and Chief Pilot for Air Force Special Operations. While there he flew numerous aircraft including the Russian-built An-2 “Colt” biplane and a highly modified C-47T “Turbo Dakota.” He retired from active duty with over 20 years of military service. Dave is President and Managing Member of Planehook Aviation Services, LLC in San Antonio, Texas. Now in its 4th year, Planehook specializes in security consulting for general aviation airports with clients throughout the United States. However, he and his company have been working quietly behind the scenes for over 2 years to ensure security regulations for the NewSpace industry are fair and reasonable. Dave has recently made his company’s expertise publicly available to the space tourism industry.
