Industrial, aluminum, airplane step stool features the stamp New York Airways, (1949-1968) on one side, a perforated top and rubber glides with all original, work-worn patina. It's a piece of New York aviation history.
New York Airways was a helicopter airline in the New York City area, founded in 1949 as a mail and cargo carrier. On 9 July 1953 it may have been the first scheduled helicopter airline to carry passengers in the United States, with headquarters at LaGuardia Airport. New York Airways employed the first African American airline pilot. Perry H. Young made his historic first flight on February 5, 1957.
