Professional profile

Jeffrey Johnson graduated for the USAF Academy with a B.S. in Aeronautical Engineering. After graduation, he attended Undergraduate Pilot Training in the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program. Following the award of his USAF pilot wings, he was stationed at RAF Woodbridge flying the A-10 Warthog. During this tour of duty, Johnson flew the A-10 throughout Europe. He returned to the U.S. to his next assignment as an instructor in the T-37 back in the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Training Program. Following three years of instructing, he was reassigned to fly the F-4G Wild Weasel at Nellis AFB, NV. During this tour, he had one combat tour over Northern Iraq. Having completed his initial three flying tours, Johnson was assigned to the Advanced Avionics Directorate of Wright Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. While there, he served as pilot liaison and program manager on several research and development projects. During this tour, Johnson completed his Master of Aeronautical Science degree with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. His final active duty assignment was as the A-10/F-16 Program Manager in the Current Operations Division of the Pacific Air Forces Headquarters at Hickam AFB, HI. From there, Johnson transferred to the USAF Reserves and currently serves as an Admission Liaison Officer for the USAF Academy and AFROTC.

During his assignment at Hickam AFB, Johnson became a faculty member with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's extended campus. Later, he was promoted to the post of Center Academic Advisor. Once he transitioned to the reserves, Johnson earned his Ph.D. with a specialization in Aeronautical Science from the Union Institute and University. He now serves as the Dean of the Burton D. Morgan School of Aeronautics at Lynn University.
