This small collection is comprised of assorted ephemera related to various commercial airlines, including photographs, postcards, decals, bumper stickers, and maps.

The bulk of the collection is more than fifty photographs, primarily of Frontier Airlines aircraft in service between 1950-1990. Featured aircraft include the DC-3, DC-9, MD-80, B-727, B-737, DHC-6, CV-340, CV-580, and CV-600. Many of the photographs are Frontier Airlines official photographs, some of which were taken at the Frontier headquarters at Stapleton International Airport, Denver, Colorado; one was published in a "Frontier News" article. Some of the photographs document the Frontier Airlines DC-3 N65276 after it lost part of its left wing following a collision with a mountain near Phoenix, Arizona.

In addition to the materials on Frontier Airlines, there are materials present from Arizona Airways, Central Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Eastern Airlines, Monarch Airlines, Pan American Airlines, Pacific Southwest Airlines, and United Airlines. The collection also includes AAF Pilot Check Lists dated 1944-1945, a Student Pilot Guide with emergency manuals circa 1940s, and assorted aviation magazine articles.
