Mid-Continent Air Express Pilot Wing

Denver, CO 1929-1931

Western Air Express established Mid-Continent Air Express on September 21, 1929. WAE supplied the capital while General Aviation Company, i.e. General Motors, supplied the aircraft, a Fokker Super Universal. The initial route was from Denver to El Paso via Albuquerque and in November 1929 a branch was opened from Pueblo eastwards to Kansas City via Dodge City and Wichita. A Pueblo-Amarillo service started in May, 1930. Once the mail contract for CAM 12 was secure, the Mid-Continent Air Express became superfluous and was absorbed by WEA in October 1931.
