There are 223 employees, with five members from the founding families still involved in the business. The longest standing employee is Gregg Munro, whose father Bob founded the airline. Gregg has been around the firm since his childhood but officially joined the payroll in 1968. Two other employees, seaplane captain Bill Whitney and engineer Gordon Barnes, have been with Kenmore Air since 1971.

There are no air stewards because the aeroplanes are too small, but pilots are allowed to remove their ties if it’s above 27C.
