In a World that Looks Down, Look Up

Working for Hillsboro Aviation is not about moving aircraft around in the sky. It’s not about rotor blades, paperwork, or turning screws.

It’s about chasing the extraordinary. It’s about flight.

Flight captures our imagination and demands more of us. More innovation. More creativity. More grit. More intent. More of what makes us feel alive. More of what makes this whole business worthwhile.

Maybe you’re looking for more. Maybe you’re looking for something extraordinary. If you are, we’re looking for you.

Vision

We believe in the power of a personal approach. We passionately purvey the notion of flight, a dream demanding creativity, persistence, resilience, and intent. We strive to foster a legacy of innovative thought, leadership, mentorship, service, and sustainability. We are dedicated to providing opportunity and growth for our team, our customers, and our community by providing extraordinary and memorable experiences in the air and on the ground.
