About John Winter
Being the son of a retired Air Force Major and born on an airbase, John has been around airplanes all his life. His first experience in an actual airplane was in a Vari-Eze that his dad helped a friend build and he has been in love with flying ever since. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to start flight training until he was in his 30s and even then life got in the way. Now in his 40s, he is working toward finishing up his training and looking to build a homebuilt in the future. He has also volunteered with his EAA chapter over the last several years during Young Eagles events and hopes to move up from ground crew to flying the kids once he has finished his flight training.
