Marla Simon Boone flies a Waco (and more) and is based at Troy Skypark Airport (37I), Troy, Ohio.

I enjoy flying anything, but especially love my straightwing WACO.  I also fly a tailwheel Colt and a Pacer.  I am a CFII and hold SEL, SES, MEL ratings as well as advanced and instrument ground instructor ratings. I also am an A&P mechanic.  I enjoy restoring antique aircraft.

    You have been an inspiration to me Marla. I met you at the Amerian WACO Club reunion in 2009. I am helping my husband, Richard, restore an ATO Taperwing and when I told you I want very much to fly it, you assured me that I can do it. She will have her maiden flight in early August and I feel like a mother about to give birth. Thanks for the tip on cushions. It will be a while before I get some flight time in the WACO but I do believe I will do it some day.
