Meet Kevin Carlisle

August 1, 2018

Kevin Carlisle, Director of Stennis International Airport, who is responsible for the airfield and airpark operations, infrastructure projects, and facilities maintenance. He previously worked as manager of airport operations & security and supervisor of operations. He also was liaison for the military units training at the airport.

The Natchez native joined the Commission in 2005. His background includes serving as a law enforcement officer with the State of Mississippi. He also served in the U.S. Army and the Mississippi Army National Guard. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in advertising & marketing and from Marion Military Institute where he received a reserve commission in the U.S. Army, and an associate’s degree in business. 

Stennis Airport continues to grow and expand, Carlisle said. “We have had an aggressive construction project schedule over the last 10 years with upgrades on the airfield and facilities."

A current major project is improving the runway. “It has been 20 years for KHSA since a major runway pavement project has been done. The airport team has kept the pavement in good condition to get the extended life.”

Airfield operation traffic has continued to grow in the last four to five years. “Even with the nightly runway closures of the mill and overlay project, our operational count is on schedule to pass our totals for last year,” he said.

More upgrades and expansion at the airport are planned. “Our next big project is the phase II of our terminal hangar project on the south side,” he said. “This will be the construction of a mirror image to the hangar located on the north side of the terminal.” And, Carlisle said, the purchase of the 1,280 acres on the east side of the airport secures and protects the airport growth in the future.

Carlisle lives in Diamondhead with his wife, Lisa. They have four children. He enjoys hunting, fishing, scuba diving, spearfishing and spending time with his grandchildren.
