Besides his military flying, Brown learned to fly at Gerstner Field, Louisiana, in 1917, when he joined the US Army Air Corps. He was a member of the Air Corps Reserve from 1920-1927, and he served with the US Naval Reserve from 1938 until his death in 1946.

Brown was an accomplished transport pilot, with over 10,000 hours, and he was an active figure and official at national aviation meets. He died on August 1, 1946, when the Consolidated PB4Y-2 he was piloting crashed.
