David (Dave) Pflieger is a former U.S. Air Force aircraft commander who has since entered into the commercial air industry. Dave Pflieger, the former president and chief executive officer of Silver Airways, currently operates in the same role for Hawaii Island Air.
Throughout its first year of independent service, Silver Airways has established itself as Florida’s preeminent airline, running more weekly and monthly routes between 10 different cities in the state than any other airline. Silver Airways has also incorporated 15 non-stop flights and a number of travel routes between Florida and the Bahamas. In August, the airline added a route between Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville, the airline’s 16th interstate route. Fares can be purchased on this route for as low as $59. The announcement of the airline’s newest route came just days after introducing a further simplified refundable fares service.
With 25 Saab 340Bplus aircraft, Silver Airways operates the largest fleet of Saab aircraft on the continent. The 34-seat jets boast best-in-class fuel economy and comfortable passenger accommodations.
