The First Flight Out is fueled by a passion for Air-Travel!.Based in Coconut Grove, Florida, near one of the original seaplane bases of Pan American World Airways, we are dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of commercial aviation.
The First Flight Out celebrates the aviation history of Pan American World Airways and other airlines who've made history in Miami. We are located near Pan Am's original seaplane base at their Dinner Key Terminal.
Located in Coconut Grove, and now serving as City Hall, Pan Am's terminal was the site of seaplane departures that revolutionized air-travel by offering Flying Clipper service to Latin America at a time when paved runways were not widely available in the region.
Miami’s Coconut Grove played a major role in Pan Am’s climb to become the world’s premier airline and to establishing the City of Miami as the gateway to Latin America.
