Founder and President
Charters by Air Denver
Dave Kempa founded Charters by Air Denver in 1981. The company serves as an outside marketing agency for some 3,900 quality charter operators and airline companies. Together, this provides immediate access to more than 18,000 aircraft of every size and description. Continuing as President and CEO, Dave personally reviews and evaluates each charter request while helping to find the aircraft best suited for the individual customer’s needs and budget.
Prior to establishing Charters by Air Denver, Dave served for five years in the Civil Air Patrol. He also spent two years working as a flight instructor. In addition, he was a pilot with a commercial air transport company and flew corporate charters.
As an Airline Transport Pilot and Certified Flight Instructor with nearly 8000 hours of total flight time, Dave is uniquely well-qualified to understand the customer’s request and to expeditiously locate the appropriate aircraft for each individual circumstance. This “hands-on” approach, with careful attention to every detail, has resulted in a perfect safety record and a large following of loyal customers.
