John Hudson - The UK military's chief survival instructor
John Hudson is the UK military's chief survival instructor, whose specialist work takes him to some of the most remote and extreme environments around the globe. A former RAF helicopter pilot, John is the Chief SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance & Extraction) Instructor, and an elected Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.
John's been a resident survival expert on two series of Discovery's primetime TV show Survive That, successfully putting his own resilience to the test on camera in front of millions. In March 2019, John starred alongside Ed Stafford on Discovery Channel's 'First Man Out', in which John and Ed went head-to-head in a gritty, real-life race in the Himalayas.
Prior to joining the RAF as a helicopter pilot, John studied Product Design at Leeds College of Art and originally hails from Ormskirk, near Preston in Lancashire, but is now based in Cornwall. He penned the joint services survival traning manual, revised the RAF's aide memoir found in all military aircraft survival packs and advised the UK SERE training, watched by all service personnel before their deployment overseas.
John's first book, entitled 'How to Survive: Lessons for Everyday Life from an Extreme World', drawing on his vast personal experience and expertise, was published in June 2019 to great critical acclaim, reaching no.4 in the Amazon bestsellers list. The paperback version of How To Survive, which contains a topical new chapter on coping with Covid-19, was released in May last year.
John has worked with disaster response charity Shelterbox, and trained many civilians (from fighter pilots and paratroopers, to investment bankers and A-listers) on how to handle life-threatening situations. From the darkest depths of a jungle cenote, to the top of a stormy Alaskan glacier, John's sense of humour and everyday stoicism have won him many fans worldwide.
