Clark Brooks has been the President of Waco Flying Service at Waco Regional Airport since he purchased Waco Flight Training's DBA and assets in December 2010. A 2010 alum of Baylor University Aviation Science, Clark transferred to Baylor after completing his Associates in Air Science from TSTC - Waco. He has over 2,000 hours of flight time - mostly in multi-engine aircraft including the Piper Seneca, Beechcraft BE-60 Duke, a wide variety of twin Cessnas, and others. He is also tailwheel endorsed. In addition to his duties running Waco Flying Service, he works as a test pilot for a local Cessna specialist, conducting post-maintenance flights on everything from 172's to 421's. "Thankfully," Clark remarks, "those flights are a lot more routine than the term 'test pilot' would imply!"
Working with Baylor
"It's really cool seeing all the students who have been exactly where I was. You try to take them under your wing; you talk to them about how the industry really works, try to keep them from making mistakes you've made, and try to introduce them to the right people."
More about Clark
Clark started flying as a kid in Goldthwaite, TX, and has always known that aviation would be a part of his life. His mom drove him 40 miles each way for flying lessons in neighboring Brownwood. Before graduating from Baylor, he was offered a position in the corporate flight department of NAPA, but wanted to remain in Central Texas and in general aviation. Learning from his father, who's been in retail for twenty-five years, Clark has implemented those lessons into successfully running his business, combining his father's influence with his own love for aviation.
