Looking for Alaska Coastal Airlines info

Recommended Posts

Howdy,Anyone know of a web site devoted exclusively to Alaska Coastal Airlines? Found a gazillion links to partial information (even photos of the old Juneau dock hanger), but nothing encompassing the entire operation. Any and all links most gratefully accepted.TIA.

Howdy,Thanks, Kevin (think the toll-free might be null and voided by the fact I'm in New Zealand :-lol). However, they're not the crowd I'm particularly interested in (they've just appropriated a very well-known name). Alaska Coastal Air were very strong in the SE Alaskan Panhandle area during the 1950s-60s, eventually merging with Ellis (mid-1960s) and finally being absorbed into present-day Alaska Airlines in the early 1970s(?)There is, of course, some material over on the Alaska Airlines main site, but little operational detail. Suppose I'll have to fire off an email to them and see what transpires. Thanks once again.

Toll free. New Zealand. :-doh Alaska Coastal Airlines. Alaska Coastal Air. :-doh I wish they had a smilie swinging a baseball bat and missing a pitched ball... Oh, well. I'll keep my eyes open for you, but a well-composed e-mail and some intra-corporate forwarding luck seems your best bet at the moment.Hope you find your pot o' gold,KevinP.S. Don't worry, if I see anything of substance, I'll let you know in this thread as I'm not afraid of strike three. :)

Howdy,Have just discovered a local (Alaskan) aviation historian in Juneau is in the process of finishing up a trilogy ("Pilots of the Panhandle") which deals with the development of SE Alaskan airlines 1925-1968 (up to the ACA-Ellis merger with Alaska Air).Am now attempting to contact the author via the Alaskan Historical Society in order to pick his brain; sometimes, it helps being a "card-carrying" historian in this simming business :-lol.
