City of Trail welcomes new Trail Regional Airport Manager
The City of Trail is pleased to welcome Enrico Moehrle as the new Trail Regional Airport Manager. Enrico has been working as an Airport Operations Specialist at Trail’s airport since October 2021 and brings over 25 years of experience in aviation maintenance and airport operations with the Royal Canadian Air Force.
“Having spent the majority of my military career as an aircraft technician and aircraft maintenance manager, I understand the complexities involved with maintaining and promoting an effective, efficient, and safe aviation environment,” said Enrico Moehrle, Trail Regional Airport Manager.
Moehrle started his new role on April 5 and is ready to bring his managerial and leadership skills to the airport. “The Trail Regional Airport provides an important service to the region,” said Moehrle. “With the support of my team, I look forward to the opportunity to continue to move the airport onward to best serve the interests of the City, its residents, and stakeholders.”
“We’re very pleased to welcome Enrico,” said Mayor Lisa Pasin. “We feel confident in his knowledge and expertise to manage and oversee all operational and safety aspects of the facility while working closely with the airline and other organizations that rely on the airport for vital air services.”
“We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Robert Baker,” said Pasin. “Robert filled the Trail Regional Manager Airport role in a dual position for 6 years and is moving back into the full-time role of Deputy Director, Trail Parks and Recreation. We are now actively recruiting for a part-time Airport Operations Specialist and will accept applications until the role is filled.”
