August Martin, was born in Los Angeles, California on August 31, 1919. August went to college after he graduated from high school. While in college he gassed and washed airplanes at the Oakland Flying Service to earn money for flying lessons. On January 8, 1940, August Martin soloed in a Fleet Model 2. He continued his flight training in the civilian pilot training program at the University of California. By the time he graduated he had finished his flight instructor rating. In 1942, he worked as a civilian flight inspector in the Navy V-12 program at Cornell University in New York. In April, 1943, August joined the Army Air Corps and went through flight training at Tuskegee, Alabama. He flew the Stearman, the Vultee “vibrator” and the AT-6 as an aviation cadet. He then went on to pilot the B-25 “Mitchell” twin-engine bomber. World War II ended before August could be sent overseas. He was discharged in January 1946. Following WWII, there were thousands of unemployed pilots looking for work. Finding a flying job was difficult, particularly if you were black. In order to stay close to aviation, August took an aircraft maintenance job with Willis Air Service in Teterboro, New Jersey. Between 1946 and 1955 he flew part time for Buffalo Skylines, El Al Airlines, and World Airways. Between flying jobs, he once took a job as a stevedore on the New York City docks to support his family. In 1955 he was hired by Seaboard World Airlines as the first black captain of a U.S. scheduled airline. From 1955 to 1968, Captain Martin flew the DC-3, DC-4, Lockheed Constellation and the Canadair CL-44 for SeaBoard World Airlines. Captain Martin felt strongly about helping the emerging nations of Africa and often used his vacation time to fly needed supplies to the people of the emerging nations. On July 1, 1968, while flying a mercy mission to Biafra, Africa, August Martin was killed while trying to land on a highway in a rainstorm. http://www.dot.state.mn.us/aero/aved/pdf/augie.pdf
