"This is the first complete story of the flights Above the Pacific from the first Hawaiian balloon ascent in 1880 and the first Curtiss flights in 1910 up to the present time (1966). Modern day coverage includes a discussion of the airlines that serve the area, as well as information on the satellite tracking facilities located on the island. This fascinating page of history includes the story of Hawaiis vital role in the development of World Aviation History. Hawaii can truthfully be called the Springboard to Aerospace in the Pacific. As a halfway spot across the ocean, it has been used by sea-faring navigators for thousands of years; and the islands strategic position in the midst of 5,000 miles of ocean has focused attention on this Garden Spot as an aid to aviation development."
