www.SouthwestOrlandoBulletin.com x March 1 — 14, 2018 x 5 SOUTHWEST SPOTLIGHT The Sky’s the Limit Phillips Landing Resident Soars to New Heights by Karen Nimetz 29 Phillips Landing resident John C. Lewe IV always had a fascination for aviation. After his parents divorced when John was 6 years old, the Chicago native and his mother moved to South Africa for several years. “I loved flying across the oceans on the big 747s,” he said. “Back then, kids were allowed to visit with the pilots up in the cockpit. Seeing all of that really sparked an interest in me.” In 1997, John began taking flying lessons. After 12.7 hours of in-air training, he flew his first solo flight. “My instructor and I had been working on ‘touch and go’s’ in which you land without fully stopping, then throttle up and take off again. We had done that about 12 times that day. Then my instructor said, ‘Stop in the middle of the runway, and let me out.’ I was nervous, but I just pretended he was still sitting next to me, which helped me stay calm and focused. It was incredibly exciting!” After 80 hours of training, John received his pilot’s license. Shortly after the birth of their daughter, Kate, in 2000, John and his wife decided to move to Orlando. The devoted father and software company entrepreneur stopped flying for nearly 15 years. In 2015, John felt ready to pick it back up. He attended a flight school at Orlando Executive Airport, where he eventually got back up to speed with his flying skills. CONTINUED ON PAGE 6 , 2016 AnnVarkeyRealtor@gmail.com 2018
