Biography

Wes Lundsberg of Sycamore, IL learned to fly at the University of Illinois, was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force for nine years and flew for United Airlines for 29 years. He is now a part-time instructor for Fly America.
He says flying is in his blood – something he’s wanted to do for as long as he can remember.
He has flown more than 100 free introductory flights – called missions – with more than 300 children through the U.S. Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program.
Lundsberg said he likes sharing the pleasure of flying and takes a selfie with the children of every mission he completes.
“I enjoy flying and really like sharing the experience with kids,” Lundsberg said. “It’s fun to see their reactions, most are positive and excited, as evidence by the big smiles on their faces.”
