Peter K. Underwood , RFT's founder and chairman, is an active commercial pilot. Since 1998 he has flown for American Airlines out of Washington D.C. and for about 10 years before that flew for Eastern Airlines out of both Washington and New York. He has lived in suburban Washington D.C. with his wife since 1980; they have two grown children.
Underwood is an Air Force veteran who received his B.S. from the USAF Academy in 1973 and graduated first (a "Distinguished Graduate") in pilot training class 75-01/02 at Vance AFB in 1974. He served active duty as an F-4 pilot in the 78th Tactical Fighter Squadron at RAF Bentwaters, UK from 1975 to 1978, and at Fort Ord, California from 1978 to 1979. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in the Reserve in 1993. In 1998 he completed the USAF Air War College. He retired from the active Reserves in 2000 to concentrate on the Reach for Tomorrow program.
Underwood served as the elected Washington Vice Chairman of the Allied Pilots Association, the union serving over 10,000 pilots for American Airlines, from 1993-1995. He helped establish a federal credit union for the pilots of American Airlines and their families (which grew to over $60 million in assets in its first four years) and served on the credit union Board of Directors from 1994 to 1996. As a board member of the Allied Pilots Association he developed and implemented a disaster relief effort for south Florida following Hurricane Andrew which airlifted over 35 tons of food, water, and supplies within three days to the disaster victims.
From 1981 until 2000 Underwood served as an Air Force Academy Liaison Officer, giving him the opportunity to interview hundreds of students throughout the Washington, D.C. area. During this time he also developed an exercise program for applicants which was published by the USAF Academy for its 1900 Liaison Officers worldwide and which is currently in use at the Marion Military Academy. He was named Outstanding Liaison Officer for the Northeast Region by the USAF Academy in 1992 and Air Liaison Officer of the Nation in 1998. For his work with youth and the USAF he was awarded a second Meritorious Service Medal in 1998.
The experiences and insights gained from this involvement led Underwood to undertake a comprehensive review of why most youth wait until nearly the end of their high school experience to properly prepare for college. It became clear to him that many if not most of the qualities that make a good Air Force candidate are also applicable for general academic, professional, and personal success. He founded Reach for Tomorrow in 1993 and continues to guide the program today.
