When the Coast Is Clear: The Story of New Zealand's First and Most Unique Licensed Scheduled Air Service - South Westland 1934-1967
by R.J. Waugh

Describing Captain Bert Mercer's exciting pioneering exploits and those of his successors, this book is illustrated with many rare photographs. The air service was the first scheduled service to be licensed in New Zealand. It pioneered regular airmail flights, established tourist flying and proved the relevance of aviation for ordinary New Zealanders. The air service, using fragile wooden "canvas and wire" Fox Moth and Dominie aircraft, lasted for over 30 years. Truly a remarkable achievement of international significance.
