Fighter Pilot Hasard Lee: How to Think Clearly

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 F-16 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 fly two 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―still in development. During his last role on active duty, Hasard became the Chief of Training Systems for the most extensive 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 life. 

Hasard is also a content creator with one of YouTube's most viewed military aviation channels. Since the start of 2021, he has had over 100 million views on YouTube and has reached over 290 million people across social media.

Hasard regularly speaks to organizations and businesses on improving their decision-making, increasing innovation, and cultivating mental toughness.
