CALL UP PHONE 3I FOR YOUR t AND CURED [ The above advertisement for the Hoover Bakery and Hoover Market, which was located above the Marlin Club, was published in the May 7, 1924 Catalina Islander. This is the first of a series on Catalina's aviation history BY JIM WATSON More than one hundred years, Catalina Island was plunged into the world of a new-fangled tech- nology known as "aviation" with the first flight to the Island by the aeroplane. 1912 to 1940 Flown by now-legendary aero- space pioneer Glenn Martin, the home-built biplane took 33 min- utes to cross the channel between Newport Beach and Avalon Bay. The flight was nearly postponed by Martin because of the seasonal marine layer, or "May Gray." But the threat of a comPetitor making the same flight on the same day spurred Martin into action despite the weather. Wearing a three-piece suit and carrying only a chronometer, a compass and a bicycle inner tube around his neck for flotation (if needed), Martin made the his- toric flight, returning to Newport Beach later that same day. The flight made headlines around the world and the age of L _~tl~ l [I]]l[Ik'tlll~l I I |i~ |! illl I~I~g.

Photo courtesy Catalina Island Museum aviation on Catalina Island had begun. It didn't take long after Martin's historic flight for others in the aviation world to begin eyeing Catalina as a flight destination, specifically for potential commer- cial applications. If it took a steamer two-and-a- half hours to cross the channel-- often in uncomfortably rough seas--many enterprising pilots saw the potential for earning some quick cash by flying visitors and residents back and forth to the Island. Among the first of these entre- preneurs was none other than Syd Chaplin, Charlie Chaplila's half- brother. In 1919, Syd started the first airline on the West Coast (believed to be only the second airline in the nation), flying pas- sengers between the harbor at Wilmington and Catalina Island. Because of his brother's connec- tions, many of these passengers were well-known celebrities. But the air business was still in its infancy and Chaplin Air Line, as it was called, only lasted two years. Outside of a short-lived local air tour operation called H.H. Holloway Aerial Service, which offered 15-minute flights around the Island for $5, it wouldn't be until 1922 that cross-channel scheduled air service began again in earnest. Doubts about the feasibility and reliability of air travel to the Island Actor Sydney Chaplin, the half-brother of Charlie Chaplin, is credited with starting the first airline to Catalina Island, actually one of the first airlines in the United States.
