In the Air

Abstract:
In the 1940s, three Charlotte-based airlines--South East, Twentieth Century, and State--struggled for a place in the emerging airline industry. None was successful, although State remained in business until 1980. Failure to win authorization for local service from the Civil Aeronautics Board, which eventually authorized Piedmont Airlines, was a factor in their demise.
