Carly Oden, Mentor Chair

Carly OdenMy name is Carly Oden. I am currently a First Officer with SkyWest Airlines, flying the CRJ 200, 700, and 900 aircraft based out of Minneapolis. I am married with one son and live in the Twin Cities with my family. I have had a varied background in aviation, from another Part 121 regional airline to Part 135 corporate aviation, along with Part 141 instructing. Additionally, I spent five years designing aviation computer-based training courseware for various airlines and aviation colleges.

I have been a member of FAST for three years now and am a member of the Events Committee and am the chair of the Mentor Program. I originally joined FAST for the encouragement and camaraderie it provides. I can say without a doubt that FAST helped me return to flying after taking seven years off. I am beyond thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of badass women and am excited to be a part of this next chapter.
