Compañía de Aviación Faucett, colloquially known simply as Faucett Perú or Faucett, was a Peruvian airline. It was headquartered on the grounds of Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima. Elmer J. Faucett had been sent to Peru as a representative of the Curtiss Export Company, arriving in the country from the United States in 1920.In 1928, he and a group of Peruvian business men joined together to found the first commercial airline in Peru, and one of the first in Latin America. In 1937, the airline absorbed Cia de Aviacion Peruanas SA from Panagra. At April 1938, the route network was flown with seven planes manufactured by the Stinson Aircraft Company, and included Chiclayo, Ica, Lima, Sabados and Talara. By May 1952, the airline flew a route network that was 3,000 miles (4,800 km) long. Faucett carried 136,456 passengers in 1955, and at year end the company had 307 employees. In 1973, Faucett was owned by Peruvian interests (46%), the Fundación Faucett (35%) and Braniff International Airways (19%). At March 1990 the airline had 1,300 employees and a fleet of ten aircraft.In the end, problems with the economic-financial structure of the airline (with debts even with CORPAC for airport services), forced it to cease operations on 3 December 1997. The airline was liquidated in 1999.
