About the Author

Randy Lippincott was born and raised on a farm in Nebraska. He attended a one-room country schoolhouse until the ninth grade. Lippincott was trained as a Special Forces medic in the Army during the Vietnam War era. He started skydiving in 1969 and made one thousand free falls (both demonstration and competition) in Europe while serving with the Seventh Army Parachute Team, 1971–72. Lippincott began flying airplanes when he was sixteen years old and has been at it for forty-seven years. He took a four-year hiatus from orthopedic surgery in Alaska and flew five thousand hours as a bush pilot. His initial operating experience was flying with Ryan Air out of Kotzebue, Alaska, on the Bering Sea the winter of 1989. Ultimately, he earned his multiengine airline transport pilot certificate. After moving to Salt Lake City, Utah, Randy started downhill skiing in 1974. His first NASTAR medal was bronze that same year. He earned a silver medal in 2002 and gold in 2008. His fastest recorded downhill speed was 66.3 mph; greatest cumulative total for one day documented on his Epic Pass was 61,668 vertical feet in 2013. Randy started rock and ice climbing in the Wasatch Range during the 1970s with Terry Loboschefsky. He graduated from the University of Utah Physician Assistant Program in 1976 when it was a pilot program. Later he went back and earned his BS in health science from the University of Utah in 1982 and a master’s in 1999 from the University of Nebraska. His other interests are sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, fly-fishing, hunting, shooting, reloading, mountain biking, rollerblading, photography, cross-country skiing, and flying throughout Alaska and the intermountain west.
