This Website is dedicated to the 3000+ men and women that made Hughes Airwest one of the leading "regional" airlines in the United States during the 1970's prior to the airline industry being deregulated by the federal government.

The Summa Corporation first announced their plans in 1979 to sell Hughes Airwest. In the fall of 1980, the assets were acquired by Republic Airlines.  Northwest Airlines then purchased Republic Airlines in 1986.  THE REST, AS THEY SAY, IS HISTORY!

"Hughes Airwest - The Movie" has been an overwhelming success and we appreciate all of you that have sent in your orders.  We still have both DVD and VHS copies available but you better order fast as they will not be re-printed because of the large quantity required.

Stay tuned for further news!!!
