Paine Wetzel’s Terry Lynch on flying planes and how he traveled alone for a year with only a backpack

Terry Lynch learned to fly airplanes before he learned how to drive. That’s because his family has always had a history with aviation. His grandfather was once a pilot who started the first business of what is now Midway Airport, in 1928, and later, Lynch’s father took over the business in the 70s. His brothers also got involved in the field and now have their own pilot’s licenses. Interestingly, one of them married his flight instructor and the other went on to write three books on Chicago aviation.

Terry Lynch learned to fly airplanes before he learned how to drive. That’s because his family has always had a history with aviation. His grandfather was once a pilot who started the first business of what is now Midway Airport, in 1928, and later, Lynch’s father took over the business in the 70s. His brothers also got involved in the field and now have their own pilot’s licenses. Interestingly, one of them married his flight instructor and the other went on to write three books on Chicago aviation. But as for Lynch himself, he quickly realized that wasn’t in his future plans after working at Midway fueling commercial jets. He realized the life of a pilot wasn’t as glamorous as the “golden age of aviation” made it out to be, and he also didn’t like his clothes reeking of jet fuel (can we blame him?). Instead, he found himself in the IT industry before making it to commercial real estate. Lynch, current vice president of Chicago’s Paine-Wetzel TCN Worldwide, now opens up about some of his most memorable journeys throughout his personal and professional career in a Q&A with Chicago Industrial Properties.
