Jack Lynch

Elon, North Carolina

Jack Lynch started flying when he graduated from college.

He retired after thirty-four years with AT&T, Lucent Technologies, and General Dynamics in engineering and management.

Jack’s hobbies are surf casting on the NC outer banks, gardening, flying, and spending time with his grandchildren.

During his flying career he has owned five different airplanes and currently owns and operates a Columbia 350. All have been based in Burlington, NC where he has spent fourteen years on the Burlington Alamance Airport Authority. He has previously been a Civil Air Patrol Mission Pilot and a long-time member of AOPA and EAA.

Jack shares “my years of flying have brought to my attention three disturbing facts about our environment: 1) the increasing density of the haze layer, 2) scars in our mountains from coal mining and 3) draining swamps in eastern NC for agricultural purposes. I hope the long term goal of Southwings is to help maintain the grandeur of our mountains, what has not already been destroyed.”
