Brooke Parsons (Ohio)

Student pilot Brooke Parsons is based at (5D6) Parsons Airport, Carrollton, Ohio.

I live on a family airport. My dad, uncle, and grandfather all own airplanes. I have been flying since I was 2 weeks old. Last year when I was 14 I started to take more and more interest in flying so my dad got me started with a few books. My trainers are my dad, and grandpa Lee Parsons. He was so excited for me to start that he ordered me cushions because I can’t quite reach the pedals of the Cessna 140 yet. My total hours of flying so far are about 6. The 140 is currently out of service but my dad and I work on it as much as possible. Every year at the Waco Fly-in I am so amazed at the beauty of flying. It is such a wonderful thing. When I am up in the sky with the sun setting, I feel like nothing is impossible. I look forward each year to going to the Waco Fly-in and it is my dream to fly a Waco by myself in there someday. For all of those out there who have a fear of flying I say try it, you will NOT regret it!

We have a 1934 Waco YKC and a 1946 Cessna 140. I will soon be soloing in the Cessna 140 and hope to fly the Waco someday all over the world =)

    Hi Brooke,

    I’ve flown into 5D6 for the last 30 or so years. My parent’s farm is 3 miles from you. You’ve probably seen my 180 tied down there a bunch. How’s your granddad doing? Will he let you fly that beautiful 170 of his? Not to mention his gorgeous Waco.
