Hawaii Island Air Announces New Majority Owner and Management Team

  1. 1. HAWAII ISLAND AIR ANNOUNCES NEW MAJORITY OWNER AND MANAGEMENT TEAM Dave Pflieger
  2. 2. Introduction  An aviation professional of nearly three decades, David “Dave” Pflieger joined Hawaii Island Air, Inc. (Island Air) in October of 2014. As President and CEO, Dave Pflieger led the airline through a highly successful restructuring and turnaround that resulted in its recent sale to a group of local Hawaii investors. In early 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation approved the purchase of a controlling interest in Island Air to PaCap Aviation Finance, LLC, and Malama Investments, LLC, both run by Hawaiian venture capitalist Jeffrey Au and his venture capital firm, PacifiCap. With assistance from Dave Pflieger and an ownership transition team, PaCap and Malama recently announced a new local leadership team who plan to grow the airline so it can serve Hawaii’s neighbor islands while offering more affordable fares to local and overseas travellers.
  3. 3. PaCap and Malama  PaCap and Malama have tapped former Island Air president Les Murashige to serve as the new President and CEO. For the chief operating officer position, the airline is appointing Rob Mauracher, another former chief executive officer with Island Air. In addition, David Uchiyama will be joining the team as its chief commercial officer. Uchiama offers expertise in marketing and sales, as well significant knowledge of the local travel industry due to previous tenure as a senior executive at the Hawaii Tourism Authority.
