John Selvaggio has been named the new president and CEO of California Pacific Airlines (CPAir), North County’s first airline. Selvaggio will be taking over CPAir’s day-to-day management from founder and chairman Ted Vallas, who is in his early 90s. Over his 40-plus-year career in the aviation industry, Selvaggio has worked as an executive for American Airlines, American Eagle, US Airways, and most recently for Delta Airlines. CPAir was originally planned to launch last year, but a series of delays with its FAA and U.S. Department of Transportation certifications has postponed the airline’s operations.
