Welcome to the Hillsboro Flying Club

The Hillsboro Flying Club is a member-owned and operated, not-for-profit organization run by volunteers who love to fly. We are based out of the Portland-Hillsboro (HIO) airport, in Hillsboro Oregon. Member involvement at all levels helps to keep rates low and ensures that the aircraft are clean, well-maintained and carrying the equipment that members want. Scheduling is easy and can be done via the web or by phone, 24 hrs a day, seven days a week. When compared with FBO's our airplanes are very available. Membership includes liability and full hull insurance coverage.

Reminder -- Google Calendar for HFC Available

Did you know that there is a Google calendar for HFC events and other flight related events?

If you have a Google account, you can easily add the calendar to those you can view by simply logging into your personal gmail account and going to your calendar and entering "hillsboroflyingclub {-at-} gmail.com" into the "add a friend's calendar" field (without the quotes; substitute the @ character for {-at-}).

You can customize the color of the calendar entries to differentiate them from your own or any other calendars you may already link to.

ICAO Flight Planning and HFC Equipment Codes

ICAO flight planning requires a little setup in your EFB apps. Check out our fleet's equipment and nav codes for ICAO under Resources > Club Google Resources. For more information on setting up some popular EFB programs with the aircraft ICAO codes see the iPad Pilot article listed under Resources > EFB Related Information.

For your convenience, here are both the links.

N1228M Gets a Max Payload Boost!

It is all official! Our 182 (N1228M) has a STC that raises our maximum gross weight for takeoff to 3100 lbs (the maximum landing weight is unchanged at 2950 lbs).

This enables prudent pilots that adhere to the guidance on Weight & Balance (see STC for Increased Weight in N1228M C-182P) to utilize our 182P to its full potential to carry a nice big payload of passengers and gear to those remote camping areas with a grass strip! Join and plan your camping trip in style today!
