Kenmore Air

Kenmore Air was founded in 1946 by three high school friends, reunited after World War II. With one airplane, and a single hangar near a swamp at the North end of Lake Washington, Bob Munro, Reg Collins, and Jack Mines gave birth to what was to become the largest and most respected seaplane airline in the world. Kenmore Air currently has 25 aircraft in operation, 52 pilots on staff and more than 250 employees in peak season.

Today, Kenmore Air is among the best-known and most respected float plane operations in the world, flying an eclectic mix of piston Beavers and turbine Otters and Caravans, landing passengers on glaciers, lakes and harbors among the mist-shrouded fjords and islands of the U.S. and Canadian northwest.

The company’s philosophy has remained unchanged since its establishment in 1946: do the right thing
