David P. Cooley Biography

David P. Cooley is a famous Pilot, who was born on February 15, 1960 in United Kingdom. The son of a USAF airman, David Cooley was born February 15, 1960 at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk, England. He grew up in Fairview Heights, Illinois and graduated from Belleville East High School. Cooley was an exceptional soccer player and captain of his high school team. His enjoyment of soccer continued throughout his life, and he was a dedicated bicyclist. He attended the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado and graduated in 1982 with a degree in aeronautical engineering. George H.W. Bush, then Vice President of the United States, was the graduation speaker and presented Cooley with his diploma, a moment of special pride for the young officer. While at the academy, he met his future wife, Sheyla, who was also a cadet. According to Astrologers, David P. Cooley's zodiac sign is Aquarius.

The Air Force convened an investigation board to determine the cause of the accident. On July 31, 2009, the Air Force released the board’s accident report that identified human factors associated with high gravitational forces as the cause of the crash. Due to the high g-forces required by the flight profile, Cooley was likely incapacitated by “almost g-induced loss of consciousness” (A-LOC).

In 1998, he was selected as the operations officer for the 410th Flight Test Squadron and performed developmental flight testing of the F-117 Nighthawk. From 2000 to 2003, he served as the vice commandant for the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School. He was responsible for the day-to-day operations of all aspects of the school and also mentored students as a full-time flight instructor. After retiring from the Air Force in 2003, he was hired by Lockheed Martin as the F-117 chief test pilot. In September 2007, he transitioned to the F-22 Combined Test Force (CTF) at Edwards Air Force Base. During this time, Cooley and his family lived in Lancaster, California.

At approximately 10 a.m. on the morning of March 25, 2009, an F-22A piloted by Cooley crashed at Harper Dry Lake, near Lockhart, California about 35 miles northeast of Edwards Air Force Base. Paramedics transported Cooley from the crash scene to Victor Valley Community Hospital in Victorville, California, where he was pronounced dead. The wreckage of Cooley’s F-22A crash extended ten miles east from the site of the accident in Hoffman Road from the Fremont Peak Road, in San Bernardino County and the debris field covered a wide area including three washes. A security team was deployed to cordon off the area due to aircraft materials that may pose health risks.
