Shown here with Lars Solberg Jr., one of his three grandsons, Thor Solberg Jr. spent his lifetime at Solberg Airport. As a retired United Airlines Captain and an Airline Transport Pilot with 11-jet type-ratings, he brought a level of experience and aviation knowledge that is second to none. In addition to his flying experience, his connections with national aviation groups were a valuable asset to Solberg. He is a former Chairman of the Board of the National Air Transportation Association (NATA). After retiring from the airlines, he focused on saving Solberg Airport from Readington Township’s Eminent Domain Seizure, building a stable turbine tenant base for Solberg Airport, and providing pilot services for many of Solberg’s hangar tenants. Mr. Solberg sadly passed away in December of 2017, but his spirit and vision live-on every day at Solberg Airport.
