Here’s a gallery of some photos from our recent Hillsboro, OR to Wenatchee, WA flight. We were bringing the helicopter back from it’s annual inspection. Weather along the way prevented us from flying direct. Instead, we enjoyed great views of the Columbia River Gorge, wild horses on the Yakama Nation land, and a fligt up the Columbia from Mattawa.

Here’s a gallery of some photos from our recent Wenatchee, WA to Hillsboro, OR flight. We had one passenger take us up on our very special offer. Although the flight started out smokey due to the fires in North Central Washington, things cleared up halfway through the flight, giving us awesome views of the Klickitat River, Columbia River Gorge, and Portland areas.
Here are a few shots from our nosecam:

Wenatchee, WA to Hillsboro, OR
On August 24, Flying M Air is flying its helicopter to Hillsboro, OR for scheduled maintenance. We’ve got two passenger seats available on this flight for folks who want to experience a long, cross-country flight by helicopter.
Weather permitting, we’ll fly direct to Hillsboro from Wenatchee, crossing the Cascade Mountains between Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens. This is an amazing flight that we first did in August 2013. You can see video from this 90-minute flight here:
If cloud cover is too low, we’ll take a longer route past Yakima and the Dalles and cross the Cascades along the Columbia River. This will likely add about 30 minutes to the total flight time.
We are departing at 7 AM sharp from Wenatchee Pangborn Memorial Airport. We can take up to 2 passengers plus some luggage, in case you want to spend a few days in the area. We’ll be landing at Hillsboro airport, which is just southwest of Portland. Car rentals and airport transportation is available. This offer does not include any ground transportation or a return flight.
The total cost of this air taxi flight is $425 for up to 2 passengers (not each). That’s about the same as two tickets on Horizon/Alaska Air — and it’s quicker and far more scenic!
