Orin Seybert founded Peninsula Airways. He was 19 years old, living in Pilot Point, Alaska and owned a 1946 two-seat Taylorcraft. In 1956, a four-seat Piper Tri-Pacer was purchased, and the company was named Peninsula Airways. In 1991 Peninsula Airways began doing business as PenAir and became a code-share and mileage plan partner with Alaska Airlines. PenAir is now Alaska's second largest commuter airline, operating a fleet of 40 aircraft and providing scheduled service to 36 communities throughout Southwest Alaska.
