The ATS MIX Team has been waiting to do this show with their good friend John Lear for quite awhile now. Inspired by their Military.Com fan base who
expressed an interest about the Air America / Continental Air Services, Inc. days of the CIA secret missions during the war in Vietnam, Dave and
Johnny cornered their good friend to get his candid and uncensored story of this particular time in his life as a pilot for the CIA.
John Lear was a pilot for Continental Air Services, Inc. (CASI), a Subsidiary of Continental Air Lines which was in existence from 1965 to 1975. It
was formed in April 1965 by Continental Airlines at the suggestion of the United States Government. The objective was to provide a "less visible"
air transport alternative to the CIA associated “Air America” for the growing Laotian support. Continental Air Services, Inc. (CASI) became
operational in September 1965. Their pilots provided contract air support to Unites States Government activities. Continental Air Services, Inc.
Ceased operations in 1975. 32 years later, John and his fellow CASI pilots and crew would finally get their just recognition.
