As a former Marine helicopter pilot and HMX-1 commander, the joy of flying and the power of team work are attributes I hold close to my heart. During my military career I’ve had the privilege to serve four U.S. presidents as a pilot and commanding officer for Marine Helicopter Squadron One, the unit responsible for flying the President and Vice President.
The 21st century is the Pacific Century and I’m excited to lead Papalua Aviation on its mission to better connect communities big and small in Hawaii and across the Pacific.
My path as a pilot began when I was 12-years-old and received flying lessons as a birthday present from my mother. The thrill of flying continues today and I’m delighted to support a new generation of aviators.
Papalua Aviation is committed to excellence and leading the way toward a better and more efficiently connected Pacific Rim.
