2019 Wing Conference Breakout Sessions

Keynote Speaker

1st Lt. Andrea Lewis is an E-8C Joint STARS aircraft copilot with the 116th Air Control Wing. She’s also the first black female pilot in the history of the Georgia Air National Guard.

Lewis comes from a family of aviators.

Her father was a Marine Corps pilot for 14 years who went on to fly another 22 years with American Airlines. Her mother is a flight attendant with Delta Airlines.

Lewis began her military career with the Air Force Reserves in January 2010. She was only the second civilian hired to be an Air Force flight attendant.

In 2011, Lewis was hired as a flight attendant with Delta Airlines while continuing to work toward her goal of becoming a pilot.

Lewis was accepted to the Georgia ANG, 116th ACW, in 2014 and was hired to be a pilot for the E-8C Joint STARS aircraft. She attended Officer Training School at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama in 2015 before beginning Undergraduate Pilot Training at Vance AFB, Oklahoma.

Lewis graduated from pilot training on April 7, 2017, officially becoming the first black female pilot in the Georgia ANG.

Lewis plans to use her position not only to serve and defend her country, but also as a platform to motivate children to never give up on their dreams.
