If you want a good read, pick up a book called "Mavericks of the Sky". It's about the first pilots and routes of the airmail service, very good book, for pilots and non-pilots alike.

The airmail system was developed as a way to teach pilots to navigate as they were constantly getting lost over in Europe in WWI, then would run out of gas or get shot down.

The book's a nail biter and comedy at the same time.
