Mr. Lindsey is the Senior Director for Sierra Nevada Corporation's Space Explorations Systems where he is responsible for the design, development, testing, and operational employment of the Dream ChaserĀ® orbital crew and cargo transportation system. He is a former Air Force pilot and NASA astronaut with over 30 years of flight test experience.
Mr. Lindsey earned a B.S. in Engineering Sciences from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1982. Upon completion of his degree he was commissioned a second lieutenant and sent to Undergraduate Pilot Training. After receiving his pilot wings he qualified in the RF-4C Phantom II and served as a combat-ready pilot, instructor pilot, and academic instructor. In 1987, he was selected to attend graduate school at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, where he completed an M.S. in aeronautical engineering. In 1989, he completed the USAF Test Pilot School course at Edwards Air Force Base, California. In 1990, Lindsey was assigned to Eglin Air Force Base, Florida as an experimental test pilot, where he conducted weapons and systems tests in F-16 and F-4 aircraft. While a member of the 3247th Test Squadron, Lindsey served as the deputy director, Advanced Tactical Air Reconnaissance System Joint Test Force and as the squadron's F-16 Flight Commander. Additionally, he served as an Integrated Product Team leader in the USAF SEEK EAGLE Office where he was responsible for weapons certification for the F-16, F-111, A-10, and F-117 aircraft. In March of 1995 he was assigned to NASA as an astronaut candidate. Lindsey retired from the Air Force in September 2006 after logging over 7,000 hours of flying time in more than 50 different types of aircraft.
Mr. Lindsey became an astronaut in May 1996 and qualified for flight assignment as a pilot. During his over 15 year tenure at NASA, he completed five space flights and logged more than 1,510 hours in space. He served as pilot on STS-87 in 1997 and STS-95 in 1998, and was the mission commander on STS-104 in 2001, STS-121 in 2006, and STS-133 in 2011. He last served as Chief of the Astronaut Corps, responsible for spacecraft development, crew selection and training, and flight test/crew operations in support of the Space Shuttle, International Space Station, and Constellation Programs.
Upon joining the SNC team, Mr. Lindsey led Dream Chaser spacecraft flight operations. In August 2013, he was selected as Dream Chaser Senior Director tasked with managing the Dream Chaser Space Systems development through the design certification phase, including atmospheric flight tests of the Dream Chaser at Dryden Flight Research Center in Calif., and launch of the Dream Chaser into Low Earth Orbit with a crewed ISS docking mission.
Mr. Lindsey has received several industry and government recognition awards including: Distinguished Graduate USAF Undergraduate Pilot Training and Distinguished Graduate and recipient of the Liethen-Tittle Award as the outstanding test pilot of the USAF Test Pilot School Class 89A. He has also been awarded: Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Defense Superior Service Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, five NASA Space Flight Medals, NASA Outstanding Leadership Medal, NASA Distinguished Service Medal, NASA Exceptional Service Medal, Air Force Meritorious Service Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal and Aerial Achievement Medal.
