Brock Booher grew up on a farm in Kentucky, the fourth of ten children. One day while he was out working the fields in the hot summer sun, a low-flying military jet came screaming overhead, barely missing the trees and disappearing like a shooting star. Right then he decided that flying looked like more fun than farming. He left the farm in pursuit of his dream, graduated from Brigham Young University, and headed off to pilot training as a new 2nd
Lieutenant in the US Air Force. When he was selected to fly the A-10, he became the low-flying pilot buzzing young farm boys in the fields of Europe and Northern Iraq. He went on to serve as an Instructor Pilot and Section Chief of Academics in the T-37. Fluent in Spanish, he also served in the US Embassy in Lima, Peru, helping with counternarcotic operations. He transitioned to commercial airline flying in the Boeing 737 and has over fifteen thousand hours of flying time. As a Certified Ground Instructor, Check Airman, and Standards Check Airman, he has instructed and evaluated hundreds of pilots in the classroom, the simulator, and the aircraft.
In addition to his pursuits as a pilot, he has taught courses on time management, risk management, leadership, and goal setting. He has volunteered in the classroom as an Adopt-A-Pilot for over ten years teaching fifth graders about science, math, and careers. He enjoys stretching his creativity through writing, and his works have been published in magazines, nonfiction books, short stories, and novels.
He has been married to his wife Britt for almost thirty years, and she has molded him into a better man. They have six wonderfully independent children and one adorable grandson. In spite of all the time he spends in airplanes, he still loves to travel, especially when it involves a bit of adventure, or service.
