President and CEO
Leading a fast-growing airline requires more than knowledge. It calls for a passion for service, and a lifelong love of airplanes. It takes technical skills married with vision for the future – not just for the company, but for the community at large. These characteristics are ever-present in Air Choice One’s President and CEO, Shane Storz.
Shane grew up in the aviation industry, cleaning planes for his father as far back as he can remember. At Air Choice One, he has served many roles in his 39 years with the company from flying as a Staff Pilot, leading the team as Chief Pilot, overseeing day-to-day flight operations as Director of Operations, and today, setting the course for growth as President and CEO. Under his leadership, Air Choice One has articulated its purpose and strategy for the future, and has made its mission, to be of service to others, a visible part of daily life at company headquarters and each market it serves. Shane’s goal at Air Choice One is to build the company into a strong, successful entity which in turn, provides greater opportunity to help others.
Shane has consistently demonstrated the company’s commitment to its mission of service through the creation of many charitable initiatives in Air Choice One markets, including donation drives and fundraising initiatives, community outreach activities, and awareness campaigns to help gain exposure for many causes.
Outside of work, Shane is Co-Founder of The Branch Outreach and Resources, whose mission is to provide meals to the hungry, offer services that encourage self-sufficiency, and improve quality of life for those in need. On the weekends you may find him snow skiing, wave running, or spending time with his daughter Ashley, who is learning how to fly.
