The successor to Speed Lanes was Continental Airlines, which Varney was founded in the year 1932, and the name was changed to Varney Speed Lines, in the year 1934. VAL was responsible for flying the first privately owned and contracted airmail flight, in the USA, in the year 1926. In the year 1927, Boeing Air Transport was founded by William Boeing and was used to operate various mail routes under contract with the USA Post Office Department. Then in the year 1929, Boeing was merged with Pratt & Whitney, in order to form the United Aircraft and Transport Corporation, or commonly known as UATC.
