Cook Strait is New Zealand's great natural divide. This book tells the interesting story of the aviation pioneers from the first flight ‘strait across' this unpredictable channel in 1920. However it majors on the first airline, Cook Strait Airways, which operated from late 1935. By 1938 it was operating five DH89 Rapides. Over 19,821 flights were completed and this book contains a comprehensive set of photographs outlining these pre-war operations. Also covered is post-war history including operations by Lockheed 10 and Heron aircraft.
