Our owner and chief pilot, Charlie Snow, has been flying since the young age of 14 and flying professionally for over 35 years. After graduating from Virginia Tech, Charlie began his career with the FAA in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1988, he and his family moved to Roanoke Island where he later became a project manager/engineer for Cape Hatteras National Seashore, as well as a Park Service pilot.
After retiring from the government, Charlie began flying charter flights and tours full time. In 2007 he founded Outer Banks Air Charters. Now Charlie is enjoying doing what he does best. Flying. And he loves taking folks up for their first flight.
When Charlie isn’t in the air, he also enjoys cycling, singing, dining out, traveling and spending time with his family. Through his other business, Outer Banks Clock Company, he enjoys collecting, repairing, restoring, servicing, buying and selling clocks (ask him about Andy Griffith’s clock collection) .
