Many thanks to Daniel Kusrow for donating hard copies of these original route brochures of Standard Airlines. These scanned images of the original winter of 1929 'FAIR WEATHE ROUTE' brochure of Standard Airlines are prized posessions of the blog. Daniel is the co-proprieter of the AIRLINE TIMETABLE IMAGES website. You will be viewing many more priceless original images of brochures and baggage emblems from his collection as we fly along on the JACK FRYE - Aviation Pioneer blog.
This week we bring you 'The FAIR WEATHER ROUTE' established by Jack Frye's Standard Airlines which was the first of its kind that embodied all of the creature comforts of early air travel, combined with rail service to southwest destinations from Los Angeles to El Paso Texas. This route was the first of its kind in American aviation! Other services included a flying school, special parties, sightseeing trips and hanger service rentals for a complete aviation operation for the one-time and or avid passenger and pilot.
Standard Airlines was and still is noted as The Pioneer Airline.
