Website updated on December 19, 2023
Welcome to Sunshine Skies, a website about vintage commercial aviation with a focus on the smaller airlines and commercial airports of Florida and Georgia. You'll find over two hundred pages full of historic photos, postcards, timetables, route maps, airport diagrams and stories about the airlines, airports and aircraft of the Sunshine and Peach states. You'll also find photos and histories of "propliners" from around the world. New photos and pages are regularly added, so please be sure to check the updates!

I built this site because I love airline history, but it's the caffeine that keeps me going. If you like what I've created and want to show a little love, support my love of coffee! No obligation - this site has been and always will be free.
