The Pan American Airways, Inc., to the Assistant Secretary of State (White)

Dear Mr. White: We are planning on a survey flight through Central America to the Panama Canal Zone leaving Havana about August 18th.

The route will be as follows:

  • Havana, Cuba
  • Cozumel, Mexico
  • Belize, British Honduras
  • Tela, Honduras
  • La Union, Salvador
  • Punta Arenas, Costa Rica
  • San Jose, Costa Rica
  • David, Panama
  • Panama City, Panama
  • Canal Zone

In covering this route by air, we will need permission from the governments of Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Panama. Will you kindly have the American Ministers to those countries instructed to secure for us permission to land and refuel our plane and to make incidental survey flights in the vicinity of the cities named in those four countries. It will be satisfactory to handle the entire correspondence by mail.

With many thanks for your help in this and other activities in Central America, we remain [etc.]
