About Brooks

Brooks, an accomplished aviation professional and industry entrepreneur, started Vaerus Aviation in 2007. Originally from Kansas, Brooks grew the business surrounding his community involvement, friends, and family. When Brooks isn’t flying or networking or volunteering in the local community, he enjoys being on the water in the summer, improving his knowledge of wines, and traveling.

Brooks has an awesomely charismatic dog named Cooper who is nothing short of our company mascot and employee of the company in his own right, and spends just as much time at the hangar as the rest of us.
“Our genuine care for the customer, the dedication to our safety culture, the substantial effort that goes into preparing and conducting each flight, the authenticity and sincerity of our employees’ character and honest love for aviation forms the identity of Vaerus Aviation.”

President of Vaerus Aviation
