World-renowned aerobatic pilot and Team Oracle Captain Sean D. Tucker knows about extreme conditions—some of his most radical stunt moves batter his body with forces nine times as strong as the earth’s gravitational pull. But preparing for the ascent to the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro required 12 months of all-day mountain hikes and 30-mile bike rides. In the end, it paid off—at 4 p.m. local time on January 26, 2012, Tucker reached the summit of Africa’s highest peak after a nine-day, 19,341-foot climb through jungle and desolate volcanic terrain. Despite the demands of the journey, Tucker says there’s a lot to be learned on the mountaintop. “I know Oracle has some very fit customers, and I’d love to have a CIO Summit on the summit of Kilimanjaro,” he says. “I think it’s good to get out of your comfort zone and push yourself.”
