Ride Your Bike to the Air Show

A partnership with the Washington County Bicycle Transportation Coalition has allowed us to coordinate a dedicated parking area just for bikes during the Saturday and Sunday shows this year. It will be located in the Airport Terminal Building parking lot off Cornell Road near the Solar World Black Gate. This lot is directly across the street from the Washington County Fair Grounds.

Air Show Week Fly-In information:

Friday: 6am -12:30pm and 4pm – 6:30pm
Saturday and Sunday: 6am – 10:30am and after 5:30pm

  • Check the Notices to Airmen(NOTAM’s) for actual start time of the Temporary Flight Restriction(TFR). There may be construction closures in addition to Air Show closures.
  • If you are arriving prior to the Temporary Flight Restriction going into effect, you should have no problem making a routine approach to Hillsboro.
  • For the Friday show, plan to arrive and be parked prior to 5:00 p.m. local time.
  • The Friday show generally ends with pyrotechnics, including fireworks and a wall of fire. Plan on a minimum 15 to 30 minute delay prior to the reopening of the runway while the Port of Portland sweeps and checks the runway to ensure it has not been contaminated. Please be patient as you exit after the show is over on Friday.
  • For Saturday and Sunday, ensure you are on the ground and parked prior to 10:15 a.m. local time.
  • Once the TFR goes into effect, it will be very difficult to enter/exit the airspace and is only allowed on emergency basis.
  • Make sure and get the Automatic Terminal Information Service(ATIS) before checking in with the Tower on frequency 119.3MHz. Call the tower at least 10 miles from the airport.
  • Expect to land on Runway 31 (wind permitting). After touchdown, either turn NE on taxiway B or Rwy 2 (if able, it’s only about 1,700 feet from the Rwy 31 threshold). Otherwise turn SE at any exit and Ground Control will direct you to spectator parking at the “Northeast T-Hangars”. From there, a shuttle will bring you over to the Air Show main gate.
  • If you arrive after the show has begun, Hillsboro Ground control may be able to assist you on frequency 121.7MHz.

Check Your NOTAMS.

For NOTAM’s please go to www.duat.com or www.aopa.org. For further information contact the Air Show Office at 503-629-0706 or via email.

The gate times and schedule vary each day. Friday Night gate times are 6:00-10:00pm; Saturday/Sunday gate times are 9:00 am-5:00 pm.
