A distinguished turnaround manager with more than a decade of executive experience, David “Dave” Pflieger has been president and CEO of Island Air since September 2014. In addition to managing day-to-day operations, Dave Pflieger is responsible for maintaining corporate sponsorships with local charities, such as the Special Olympics Hawaii chapter.
In order to support Special Olympics Hawaii, which serves more than 3,500 athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout the main islands, Island Air has lent its corporate backing to help local athletes in the 2014 games. Thanks to the support of Island Air, athletes from the island of Lanai were able to participate in Special Olympics for the first time since 2006. In addition, Island Air team members Susan Wadas and her son Michael joined Special Olympics coach Dylan Bode to assist in the recruitment and coaching of athletes in preparation for the Winter Classic this past November, as well as transporting to and from Lanai and Maui.
