Mesa, Arizona—David Joseph Kappes, age 28, was killed on December 19th while piloting a cargo delivery aircraft owned by California-based AmeriFlight, LLC, which operates freight delivery services in Arizona. 

Mr. Kappes was on route from Holbrook to Payson when he encountered a winter storm.  He radioed air traffic controllers in Payson to tell them he was diverting to Phoenix rather than making the scheduled stop in Payson.  At about 1:30 a.m., Mr. Kappes’ plane crashed into the Mazatzal Mountains.

Mr. Kappes was a graduate of Mountain View High School and Arizona State University.

We extend our sympathy to the family and friends of Mr. Kappes at this time of great loss for them.
