Sean Tucker, a native of Eagle Rock California, earned his pilot’s certificate at age 17. Tucker's father, William, was an aviation industry lawyer who had learned to fly as part of his job. Tucker started out as a cropduster, eventually starting a cropdusting business in Salinas, CaliforniaIn order to overcome his fear of crashing, Tucker took an aerobatics course, through which he "found out you could roll an airplane upside down and it wouldn't fall out of the sky."He has been flying airshows worldwide since the mid-1970s and is considered by many to be one of the world’s premier airshow performers. Tucker's favorite stunt is the "triple ribbon cut", where he uses his plane to cut three ribbons suspended between poles from three different angles.Despite once having afear of flying, Tucker has flown more than 1,000 performances at more than 425 airshows, in front of more than 80 million spectators.
