Sir Dennis Buchanan ran Talair an airline (aviation company).  It has been mentioned that he was the king of the PNG skies. Talair had its origins as Territory Airlines, founded in 1952 as a charter company.

 

He once commanded over 70 aeroplanes (in its prime (1979), Talair had operated up to 71 aircraft, the biggest fleet of third level aircraft in the world), under the Talair Pty. Ltd. banner, from his Goroka Headquarters. He went on to form another airline in Australia called "Flight West Airlines".
