Welcome from the General Manager
Since 1958, the Truckee Tahoe Airport District has been an integral part of the community of Truckee and North Lake Tahoe. Located at 5,900 feet, in the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range, we are connected by more than a runway! With a dedicated team and volunteers, we are highly aligned with our mission.
The Truckee Tahoe Airport aims to provide safe, high-quality services and facilities, reduce impact on our airport neighbors and the environment, and invest in opportunities that increase community safety and provide sustained benefit to the entire Truckee Tahoe region.
Robb Etnyre, General Manager
