Windsock - Customer Service Representative

Born in 2006, she is young, but she is fierce! In 2008, Windosck was rescued from the Panhandle Animal Shelter and brought to the Sandpoint Airport. Generally speaking, she is a great asset to the team. She rarely barks, never works, and only occasionally sleeps on the job! Windsock likes to protect her turf from the dogs that come and visit Granite Aviation and also chase birds…. which she gets scolded for (worth it to her though!) Windsock has a love for aviation that is just as strong as the rest of us, she enjoys going into airplanes, jets and even helicopters! If you leave your doors open, do a Windsock check before departing. Her favorite people that visit her at work are the UPS delivery people (so she can have a box to play in) and her fans that come in every morning. Windsock is the Sandpoint Airport’s celebrity; people want pictures with her and she is posted on all of their social media, she has quite the following. She loves visits, so come on in!

Kinzie Plocher - Line Service Technician / Administration Receptionist 

Born and raised in Swan Valley, Idaho, Kinzie moved to Sandpoint in June of 2017. Her love of aviation started at a young age, as she grew up watching her dad work as an aircraft mechanic. In 2012, she started working at Teton Aviation Center in Driggs, Idaho, and gained experience in the Line, Maintenance, and Customer Service departments. In November of 2014 she earned her Private Pilot’s License, and has logged time in some incredible Warbird’s including: Grumman Albatross, T-2 Buckeye, and T-28 Trojan.
