This book traces the history of over 70 small airlines that operated in Florida and Georgia from the 1910s through the 1990s. "Sunshine Skies: Historic Commuter Airlines of Florida and Georgia" offers the aviation enthusiast one of the most comprehensive glimpses of what was once one the most colorful and fascinating facets of the airline industry, the commuter. The book addresses in painstaking detail the carriers that transported passengers in some of the most classic, rare and historic aircraft to grace the skies of the Sunshine and Peach States during what was undeniably the independent commuter airline's Golden Age of the late 1960's to early 1980's. Sunshine Skies is complete with rare and invaluable photos of ramp, runway and in-flight operations. It also features exhaustive fleet listings, and hard to find timetable covers. Many airlines that have faded from memory and flown into extinction are here: PBA/Naples Airlines, Marco Island Airways, Shawnee Airlines, Mackey International, Air Florida, Air South, Florida Air Lines, Sun Airlines and over 70 others. "Sunshine Skies: Historic Commuter Airlines of Florida and Georgia" is a must for the serious airline afficianado and should be in the library of every airplane lover who ever stopped whatever they were doing to catch a glimpse of a PBA DC-3 lumbering across the Florida Everglades, or to watch a Martin 404 with its brilliant red, orange and yellow Air South cheat lines descend with its exagerated nose-down attitude during finals into Brunswick, Georgia.
