Don McDermott

"Mac" arrived at AAB as a young pilot in 1964. His father flew with C.F. Blair Jr. at both American Overseas Airlines and Pan American Airlines and this intro gave him his new opportunity. In 1964, Mac was not getting a lot of flight time, at the newly formed airline, so he left and returned in 1969 when the increased schedule allowed him to fly full time.  When the G-73 Mallards arrived in 1974, Mac became a key pilot for both N7338 and N7356.  More Mallards arrived in 1979 and Mac continued to educate both pilots and co-pilots the finer points of flying this very unique aircraft. After AAB, Mac continued his craft with Virgin Island Seaplane Shuttle as Chief Pilot until it closed in 1984. Mac was a very special part of the Antilles Air Boats team. He is now retired and living in Louisiana.

Don's wall at home in Louisiana. A fond memory of those days gone by.  Especially the $8 one way and $15 round trip St. Thomas / St. Croix.
