Wheeler Airlines

Originally founded in 1976, Wheeler Airlines developed from charter operations founded by Warren Wheeler. Warren was the first African American hired as a pilot by Piedmont Airlines and was not only the first but was also throughout the 70s and mid 80s the only African American owner of an airline.

 

The flights below came from the October 78 timetable from www.timetableimages.com .

 

All these routes were flown by Beech 99s in 78. Although no Wheeler texture sets are available the Beech 99 is available from www.premaircraft.com
