David Fliehr, Class of 1974
David Fliehr here with a mini bio!!
I attended AIS-New Delhi from 1962-1968, then moved to Tehran, Iran 1968 to 1970, returned to New Delhi in 1971, and finally moved to Kabul, Afghanistan, where I attended AIS-Kabul and graduated in 1974.
I remember when the AIS in Delhi was brand new! The construction was on going while we attended classes, especially the patios.
During my American International School of Delhi experience, I joined the Indian Barat Cub Scout program, then the BSA Troop 1.
I stayed involved with Scouting all the way through to Kabul and am still involved with my two boys. We also (my high school sweetheart from Kabul) have 1 daughter as well.
Following Graduation, I joined the Air Force as a B-52H Crew Chief for 4 years.
Then went and received my AS in Civil Aviation Maintenance in Pittsburg.
Moved to L.A. from 1980 to 1995 and worked at various corporate flight departments, such as Broadway Stores, Sony Corp, and even Michael Milkin as a Chief of Maintenance. I also finally got the BS (from my wife who is PhD) while in LA.
We have since moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where the raising a family is the main goal now. I work in corporate aviation still as a maintenance manager and get to do some traveling overseas as well.
My hobbies are still Scouting, Camping, Flying for fun (in our Cessna 172) and Motorcycle Riding in which I picked up while in Afghanistan.
I remember and have had some contact over the years with Jeff Campbell ('73), and heard thru him THAT Barry Douglas ('70), lives in Arcata?
Classmate, Mark Vollmer, whom came and visited me in Kabul one summer and whom became a good friend while I was in India the second time, e-mail back and forth. Hoping he and I can get together some time.
I would love to attend an AIS reunion, but mainly go to our AISK reunions, due to time constraints.
I am still trying to find Chuck Coleman ('73), as he was a great pal of mine during my early years in Delhi. I think we got in a lot of trouble together!
Thanks Mary Williamson for being our class secretary and all your effort in passing out the e-mails and such!
