The route of the "Air Chiefs" undoubtedly could not operate today, so we're fortunate that Mohawk was created in 1952. It originated in 1946 as Robinson Airlines, until controlling interest was purchased by Robert Peach. Mohawk was the first local service airline to fly pressurized aircraft in 1955, when it introduced Convair 240 "Air Chiefs". As Mohawk grew, Convair 440s, Martin 404s & F-27s were added, and in 1965, Mohawk became the first Local Service Jet operator, introducing BAC-111s. In 1972 Mohawk was acquired by Allegheny, bringing to an end the Route of the Air Chiefs.
