NEW ATC CONTROLLER

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District and MidWest Air Traffic Control are pleased to extend a warm welcome to Paige, our newest addition to the air traffic control team!  Pilots flying in and out of KTRK will hear a pleasant and professional new voice guiding them through both Ground and Tower frequencies from the ATC tower.

Paige brings a wealth of experience to her new role, boasting nine years of dedicated service in the field of air traffic control. Her journey began with the Air Force, where she honed her skills before spending a year controlling at Redding Municipal Airport. With a passion for aviation kindled during her upbringing in Alaska, Paige fell in love with the mountains and natural beauty of the Sierra.

"I hope to grow more and serve the aviation community here well," says Paige, reflecting her commitment to excellence and dedication to ensuring safe skies for all. As she takes her place in the control tower, we look forward to the positive impact she will have on our operations and the flying community at large. Welcome aboard, Paige!

The Truckee Tahoe Airport District reopened Runway 02/20 after two weeks of intermittent closures to complete the final finishing touches (fog sealing and restriping) of last year’s reconstruction project. The 4,650’ long x 75’ wide runway is the smaller of the airport’s two runways. The $6.3M project was an FAA funded Airport Improvement Project (AIP). KTRK encourages pilots to use Runway 02 when able, as it is the preferred community-friendly quiet departure runway. Click post heading for pics.

He's not just handy with tools, but also with building strong relationships among airport staff and tenants.
