When you fly with Outer Banks Airlines, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands from take-off to touch-down. That’s because we hand-select only the most skilled and experienced pilots for our team. Our founder Charlie Snow has more than 35 years of experience as a professional pilot. In fact, most of our pilots are career pilots – several with decades of experience – and all of our pilots have been thoroughly vetted for safety, experience and performance. If you have any questions or concerns about the men and women in the cockpit, feel free to contact us for more information.
Our Founder and Director of Operations, 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 known as Outer Banks Airlines. Today, Charlie enjoys 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 working on clocks, cycling, singing, dining out, traveling and spending time with his family.
Jenna is our full-time office manager and skilled in customer service, scheduling, accounting and general office management and organization. She handles a variety of tasks from bookings to customer service to business operations. Chances are, you’ll get to interact with Jenna when you book flights or have questions.
Jenna is also a pilot and is currently working on her advanced ratings to fly with us professionally, while she simultaneously learns the aviation business from the inside out.
When not working, she enjoys . . . wait for it . . . FLYING! In her words, “It’s my favorite thing. I’m working on gaining my next rating so that instead of turning my paycheck into airplane fumes, hopefully, one day, the airplane will pay ME to fly IT!”
