A little bit of history:
The Consolidated Model 17 Fleetster was a feeder at the end of the line "N.Y.R.B.A. Line" (Ney York, Rio, Buenos Aires Line), we can tell that this line was the dorsal column of the air transport of thirties in the american continent, this line was one of the predecessor of "Pan American Airways System". The Fleetsters were devoted to feed the south end of the line.
They were used to carry people and mail from Buenos Aires to others Argentina's destinations and viceveresa, included the Patagonia.
