Joe Lorenz

Pilot Member

Term 10/01/2017 (05/22/2019) - 09/30/2020

A native of Napa, California, Joe and his wife Mary left the Bay Area in 2017 and became full-time Truckee residents. With a bachelor’s degree in Geology and a Masters in Business Administration, Joe retired after 30 years as a government and public affairs professional. Joe learned to fly as an Air Explorer Scout at the Napa Airport and soloed when he was sixteen, and a year later, earned his Private Pilot Certificate. He is currently working on his instrument rating through Sierra Aero and recently joined the Tahoe Flying Club. Through these most recent experiences, he’s grown to understand the responsibilities the pilot community in the Truckee area must take on to continue to operate safely while at the same time acting in the best interest of our neighbors.
