Juan Trippe and Pan Am – Part Three – February 19, 2010

This week I want to talk about the Florida operations for Pan Am at Miami International Airport. Miami International was originally called Pan American Field, and although they operated Dinner Key as their base of operations after Key West, the Clippers were over taken by technology and faster airplanes. Pan Am shifted operations back to land based airplanes at Miami International. As always, I would like all aviators to connect with their roots and one of the ways they can do that is by using the “Third Dimension Blog” as a resource.

The Future of Commercial Aviation – Part One – January 15, 2010

This week I will begin the series on “The Future of Commercial Aviation” and will highlight a few facts about the success of, or lack of success -- Deregulation. This will be a three-part series and it is going to be difficult for me to keep it balanced based on my personal biases. However, I am not a Boeing salesperson. I am an aviator who is watching the industry self destruct.
