Arthur Burns "Pappy" Chalk formed Chalk's International Airlines in 1919 as Chalk's Flying Service. He claimed to have started carrying fare-paying passengers a few months before Avianca, making his service the world's oldest international airline. He also boasted that Chalk's airfield on Watson Island, situated along MacArthur Causeway linking the city of Miami Beach, was the smallest port of entry in the United States.
