About this site...

Over many years, the past employee's, passengers and friends of Antilles Air Boats have told stories and have shared photos of that special time in history.

We hope that this website will give everyone an opportunity to continue to share their stories, photos and comments.

We will share our collection of specific material on aircraft Antilles Air Boats used over the years as well as the many professionals that assisted its passengers to get from island to island.

The website continues to grow to over 200 pages with over 1000 photos and over 100 documents/articles. Each week I will try to post updates to indicate new additions to help navigate the site.

There is still many areas that need to be completed and I appreciate your patience .

  Thank you to everyone that have visited as well as contributed. The site has had 10,000 individuals visiting from around the world with over 56,500 page visits since we started in March 2017. The visitor rate is increasing every week. 

Trying to develop more pages on past employees. Many of the pages are incomplete but hope over time I will have more information. I also hope to make contact with individuals to expand on those that worked at AAB or AII. The AAB story is not complete without talking about the people. How did they get there and where did they go after.

more to come...
