Sierra Pacific Airlines Pilot Hat Badge
There were at least three different Sierra Pacific Airlines. One operated out of Oakland, CA from 1965 to 1966. Another operated out of Burbank, CA from 1971 to 1972 and another operated out of Tuscon, Arizona. The Tuscon operation started in 1976 and was still in operation in 1985. This Burbank airline started as Trans Sierra Airlines and was reorganized as Sierra Pacific Airlines. There is another one that operates out of Tuscon, AZ. this airline was established in February 1976 as Mountainwest Aviation. It is wholly owned by the Sierra Pacific Group. We do not know which airline this hat badge goes with.
