Speaker Bio

Dave Moore is a Navy and Air Force decorated aviator and officer. He survived three plane crashes, flew through three hurricanes while performing search and rescue with the Coast Guard, and has logged 39 combat missions in the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.


Dave Moore is a former Coast Guard Search & Rescue Pilot and Air Force combat pilot.


As a teenager, all Dave wanted to do was become a professional pilot. He drove hard for his passion and engulfed his life in everything aviation. After experiencing his first plane crash that nearly took his life at 23, he became incredibly afraid to fly an aircraft or even board a commercial airliner without becoming intoxicated. Stifled by fear, Dave decided his aviation career was over…


Years after Dave took a job and successfully accomplished his first Outside Sales position and again revisited his passion for aviation. He knew it was time to face his fear and began to develop a personal system that allowed him to overcome this obstacle.


Had he not overcome the challenges he faced and allowed fear to dictate his life, Dave would not have achieved the following:


  • Navy & Air Force Wings
  • Military Officer – Coast Guard and Air Force
  • Graduated highest Navy Standard Score (NSS) of all Navy Squadrons
  • Held high-level leadership positions – Managing large teams and large budgets
  • Chief Pilot on the HU-25 Falcon Jet – Search & Rescue Missions
  • Flew 39 Combat Missions in the Middle East in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom
  • Numerous Corporate Pilot Positions


A huge part of my story, my passion, and the constant theme in my life is aviation. We all need a passion that drives us beyond mediocrity toward fulfillment of our destiny.


We tend to go through the motions in life, not really setting out to accomplish anything specific. It’s like we’re on autopilot, not really taking the controls and steering ourselves in a particular direction. Many people get to a point in life where they have accepted mediocrity too many times and wandered off course so far that they can never correct their course.


But if you are aware of who you are, what you stand for, and what you want to accomplish, your life will be a lot more meaningful and happier. At any point in your life, you can change your mind-set and become the person you want to be.


But first, you have to wake up. When you do that, you can become the person you want to be, and you can achieve anything.


You must wake up to win.  – Dave

    Working with Dave was very pleasurable, from the one on one interview I did with Dave, to experiencing his stories of life that taught everyone in the room so much. The main take away from Dave’s speech, his experiences were authentic and everyone in the audience could relate to the experience. Since HR is managing and interacting with different individuals on a daily basis, Dave’s experiences provided the frame work of how to interact with different individuals and speak to their needs.

    Dave’s stories really energized the crowd and his low-key personal style was just right for our Staff Appreciation event. He interacted well with the group and presented challenging situations in a light-hearted, yet instructional way. We have already recommended him for other events.
