Description
Edited by Richard Waugh • Contributing Authors John King, David Phillips & Richard Waugh • Published by Richard Waugh in conjunction with the East Coast Air Service Celebration Committee

The East Coast of the North Island was a pioneering area of New Zealand aviation. Gisborne-based East Coast Airways was the first New Zealand airline to be licensed and the first to operate twin-engined aircraft, de Havilland Dragons, from early 1935. This book tells the adventures of the aviation pioneers; joyriding off beaches, hand-swung propellers, forced landings and a converted tramcar for a passenger terminal. Illustrated by many rare photographs, this story describes how aviation made a significant social and economic impact on provincial New Zealand. The Gisborne-Napier route continues today as the oldest scheduled air service in New Zealand.
