Just bought into an old travel air in Hawaii . She hasn’t flown in a few years so I’ve been going thru everything in and out up and down.

Congratulations.

A friend in Texas had one back in the early 90's that went to Hawaii. I wonder if it is the same one?

I spent some time looking in the history and see it live a lot of its life in the SoCal to vegas area and made the trip over the pond around 2002. There’s a couple of travel Airs I see here , if you had the tail number I could definitely tell you if it’s here.

I flew it a few times, nice plane, but I guess I never logged the time.

My Dad flew for Air Mic and we lived in Kailua in the early 70's and on Kaneohe Bay in the early 80's. I worked for Panorama Air Tours as a mechanic apprentice in the early 80's. Some of my ratings were obtained at Ma Wood's school. Got to meet her a few times.

I worked at PAT the summer of 1980 when they had Tri-gear Twin Beeches.

Ma Woods info from - http://archives.starbulletin.com/2003/1 ... tory1.html

Marguerite Gambo-Wood
Businesswoman Pilot
Although there were a number of female aviators in the islands, such as Emma Ing Chung, Madeline Hayden, Barbara O'Farrell, Irene Ozias and Juanita Wilson, Marguerite Gambo made the biggest splash as a savvy aviation entrepreneur.

Taught to fly by the ubiquitous Robert Tyce, Gambo soloed in 1937 and quickly became rated as a commercial pilot. She was present at island air meets, talking up the future of flying, and she became the Hawaii representative for the Aeronca aircraft factory. In 1939, she founded the Gambo Flying Service, building the first private hangar in the islands, and her orange and blue Aeroncas were well-known in Hawaiian skies. One of her Aeroncas, with Roy Vitousek at the controls, was caught in the air on Dec. 7, 1941, and shot up by the Japanese. This aircraft has been restored and is currently on display at Pearl Harbor. Gambo herself was in the air, teaching a student, when they were caught in a swarm of attacking Zeros. Gambo seized the controls and flipped the aircraft out of harm's way, memorialized in "Tora Tora Tora."

The military banned private aviation in the islands during the war and Gambo married, creating her business again when the war ended. Known to hundreds of students as "Ma Wood," Gambo-Wood continued to define civil aviation. Her estate continues to fund an aviation scholarship in her name.

Very interesting history. Her name is right next to some big names in Hawaii aviation.
