"Pioneers of the Air"

When the first commercial airmail pilot took to the air in Idaho in 1926, it didn't take long before many realized airplanes could open the state to a world of possibilities.

But before Idaho could reap the benefits of flight, the state needed airports, runways, and pilots who could navigate miles of desert and wilderness. Find out how early pilots took on Idaho's rugged landscape.

IDAHO EXPERIENCE is a new series produced by the award-winning team at Idaho Public Television. We bring to life the stories of the extraordinary people and defining events that have shaped Idaho's past and present.
