Biographical / Historical:
Elmer J. Faucett (1891-1960) worked for Curtiss Aircraft as a mechanic before he enlisted in World War I. In 1920, Faucett transferred to Roosevelt Field and was put in charge of service and maintenance. In June of that year, after being fired for a stunt, Faucett was sent to Peru. On October 5, 1922 he was the first man to fly over the Andes mountains, and fly from Lima to Iquitos. On September 15, 1928 he began the Faucett Aviation Company, a cargo and passenger airline which became Peru's oldest and largest domestic airline.
