Aviation Advocate and Trainer
Established Browning Aerial Services for pilot training
Pilot, aviation advocate and life-long Texas resident, Emma Browning gained flight experience during the Depression as a ferry pilot with her barnstorming husband, Robert. At the beginning of World War II, the couple received U.S. government contracts to train pilots as part of the Civilian Pilot Training Program. Their school trained many pilots who went on to fight in the war and provided the foundation for Browning Aerial Services, which she ran for almost 50 years.
