From Bill Odell


Imperial Airways


        For several years now I have been interested in Imperial Airways and its many interesting aircraft.  Allan Lowson has played a huge part in my becoming interested in Imperial, by feeding me tons of information, research leads, stories etc..  This has resulted in my putting together the routes of this airline so that you can enjoy the challenges of flying in the thirties with a minimum of instrumentation and navaids.  I am presently flying all of these routes and flights.  Starting with August, I will be submitting these routes periodically for you to enjoy as well.  I am writing this to see if you have the interest or comments on this endeavor.  I must add here that all of the aircraft that Imperial flew during this period are on AVSIM for FS 2004.  Let me hear from you.
