Service Scheduled
for Wednesday morning
April 28, 2010
Emma Browning died Friday afternoon following a brief illness.

Emma was a long time member of FBC and a member of the Texas Aviation Hall of Fame. She has been involved in aviation since her first flight in 1929. She married Robert Browning Jr. in 1930 and became his ferry pilot as he barnstormed across Texas. Together they owned Browning Aerial Service, a fixed-base operation that originated in Abilene and later moved to Austin, Texas. Mrs. Browning obtained her pilot’s certification in 1939. Although she taught many individuals to fly she was more at home managing Browning Aerial Services. She was a principal force behind the formation of the Texas Aviation History Museum in Austin, Texas.

Services are planned for Wednesday morning at FBC pending arrangements through the funeral home.
