Elusive Veterans Air records are hopefully not nonexistent. The pursuit of new aviation sources and resources steeped in the non-sked air line era prompted a great journey in June & July 2018. Come see who was on the meet-and-learn-from list between Oregon and Washington DC.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
Thousands of land and air miles, days and weeks on the road, and contact with aviation folks who knew about the Non-skeds and showed honest interest in my story. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Non-sked researcher Alan Bender, an Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Professor, agrees to meet and share some of his long-time independent research into, and passion for, the non-sked era in which Veterans Air operated in 1945-1947. Alan bursts with incredible and myriad details — and infectious enthusiasm. This was an amazing opportunity. Come meet The Professor.
The history of 1945 Veterans Air has recently attracted varied (and rather large, may I add?) aviation audiences as our research unfolds more crew, flight and non-sked era details.
Any invite to talk about Veterans Air delights me. But a live interview by a Prescott radio talk show host to publicize my own talk at Embry-Riddle? That’s pretty sweet! It is fun sharing the story with D. J. Fone on 21 Jan 2020. Come listen.
Part 1 of 3-part video featuring unfolding Veterans Air history is released today. Founder’s daughter, Gaye Lyn, tells the story to student research project at Embry-Riddle Florida.
One gorgeous summer day at Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach campus, three students and I delved into a conversation about Veterans Air Express. The outcome? This 3-part video.
