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.

Our Airplanes

28M at Abbotford, BC, Canada.

The Club's Cessna 182, N1228M at CYXX.

Member Frank Weissig flew 28M to Abbotsford, BC for the Abbotsford International Airshow. He took in the Friday evening show, featuring the Blue Angels, Snowbirds, CF-18 afterburner extravaganza, a jet-powered glider with pyrotechnics. It all ended with a massive fireworks display, all in all one of the best airshows he's seen in a long while.

AC 90-66B of 3/13/18 Posted

A new Advisory Circular document is posted to the Documents section of this site (See: http://www.hillsboroflying.org/node/139 ) If you prefer, visit our "Resources" page and find the link to the FAA Advisory Circulars, search for "Non-Towered" and you see the link straightaway.

Don Brown, one of our CFIs, stated when he sent this to be published, "This is significant w/regards to operating @ non-towered, or towered but closed, airports, and the multiple relevant previous AC's it now supersedes as of last month. The AOPA presenter made explicit that most of this is ADVISORY, not FAA Mandated, but no less recommended due to it goal of SAFETY and thus pilot longevity.
As I stated last night, this for me was likely one of the most valuable presentations of my lifetime."

Since you expanded this post: simply visit https://www.faa.gov/regulations_policies/advisory_circulars/index.cfm/go... and get it straight from the FAA.

"Flying Season" Redefined

In September of 2017, the Board redefined the "Flying Season" to May 1 through Oct 31. This extends the season by a month on each end as the old duration was defined as June 1 through September 30.

This was done primarily to promote aircraft availability to our growing membership by extending the period of time that the Summer scheduling rules applied. See the updated regulations at http://www.hillsboroflying.org/regs (specifically section 5.1 and 5.2 dealing with long reservations and multiple uncompleted reservations.
