Adventure Flight Offers: Wenatchee to Hillsboro or Hillsboro to Wenatchee

Along the Way

Ferry flights are always a good excuse to offer deep discounts to folks interested in traveling by helicopter. Here are two offers for flights coming up soon:

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!

Hillsboro to Wenatchee

We’re planning to bring the helicopter back to Wenatchee on September 3, 2015. We’ve got two seats for the return flight as well. The same route options based on weather apply.

We are departing at 10 AM sharp from Hillsboro Airport. We can take up to 2 passengers plus limited luggage. We’ll be landing at Wenatchee Airport, which is east of Seattle on the east side of the Cascade Mountains. 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).

Book Your Adventure!

To book either flight, call Maria at 509-699-8044 or 928-231-0196.

This offer expires at 8:28am on Wednesday September 2nd, 2015.
