South Central Airlines

South Central Airlines were formed in October 63 to act as a feeder liner service to airports served by main airlines as their aircraft increased in size and became less able to handle smaller airports. The services ranged from Charlotte, North Carolina to Miami, Florida.

 

The fleet consisted of Beech D-18S and a Piper Aztec. A timetable illustration suggests that the Beechcrafts included the H18 with tricycle undercarriage.

 

After a crash in February 64, which proved to be as a result of overloading and tail-heavy weight distribution, the airline lost public confidence. It ceased operation in July 64.

 

The flights below came from the November 63 timetable from www.timetableimages.com .

 

Good luck making sense of the connections.
