Dorado Wings (Crown Air)
Dorado Wings was a small airline that operated from Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico to Dorado Airport in the tourist center of Dorado. Dorado Wings was the only commercial operator at Dorado Airport. Dorado Wings existed from 1964 to 1982. In early 1982, the airline was purchased and its name was changed to Crown Air which operated until 1988. Flights from San Juan to Dorado took a mere 15 minutes. Because of the shortness of their flights, Dorado Wings airplanes were a constant sight every day at many airports throughout this part of the Caribbean.
Incidents and accidents
In 1981, a Dorado Wings airplane suffered an accident on a Non Revenue flight after take off at San Juan airport. There were no major injuries or fatalities, though the aircraft was totaled.
