Andrew Otterness joined the Kenmore Air family as the Lake Union Station Manager in 2002. Over the years his job has evolved, but one thing’s remained constant – everyone who meets him raves about his kind personality and ability to accomplish anything.
For the inside scoop about what makes Andrew tick, I went straight to the source. Here are the key takeaways from our chat:
MC: You’re the Director of Stations. What does that entail?
AO: In the beginning as Director of Stations, I was hands-on helping with the day-to-day at our Lake Union, Boeing, Eastsound, and Friday Harbor stations. But right now, I have four very independent people managing each station. With such a great staff, I’m often head-in-the-computer working on projects. (more…)
As familiar as most of you may be with Kenmore Air, you probably don’t know about our hopscotch flights. I didn’t and I’ve been here for over two years! But you should because they’re amazing.
What is a hopscotch flight?
A hopscotch flight is a positioning flight. In Seattle, we have two seaplane terminals. One is on Lake Union in downtown Seattle. The other is on Lake Washington, in Kenmore.
The latter is our headquarters (aka Kenmore Air Harbor). This is where all of our maintenance staff is located, it is where parts are manufactured and stored, and it is where the planes officially live. At the end of each day, they come back Lake Washington where our protected harbor offers them safe storage.
Positioning flights happen when we need to reposition a plane between to accommodate a regularly scheduled or charter flight. (more…)
