The Last Stop South
When Augustin Parla hopped in his seaplane in a bold decision to fly from Monroe County to Cuba in the spring of 1913, there is no way he could have known the kind of impact that choice would have. Though he only made it to the waters outside his destination, needing to be picked up by sailors, his sense of adventure and courage was an inspiration for the area. In five years, another seaplane made its way from one coast to the other.
By the late 20s, scheduled flights began and Meachem Field became the primary service location for flights into and out of Key West.
