World’s First Commercial Airline & the Greatest Moments in Flight

from https://www.space.com/16657-worlds-first-commercial-airline-the-greatest-moments-in-flight.html On Jan. 1, 1914, the world’s first scheduled passenger airline service took off, operating between St. Petersburg and Tampa, Fla. The St. Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line was a short-lived endeavor — only four months — but it paved the way for today’s daily transcontinental flights.

Their 21-mile (34-kilometer) flight across the bay to Tampa took 23 minutes. They flew in a “flying boat” designed by Thomas Benoist (pronounced ben-wah), an aviation entrepreneur from […]
