I received truly exceptional service so I wanted to make sure I took time to acknowledge the person involved...At the time I was a student pilot with my check ride the next day. As my instructor was going through the aircraft logs we discovered the pitot-static system was due for an inspection. While I could have technically flown VFR without it, that kind of action never bodes well under the eye of an examiner. We called several places who were either too busy, closed soon, were not certified etc. We called your location around 4pm from Harrisburg, OR (about an hour away). We explained the situation and Chris said they would stay late to perform the check. We arrived and 3 guys came running to get the airplane in your facility, and immediately started work. Chris would update us as we were in the lobby waiting and offered us some cold water. The check was performed and we had a clean bill of health. I took the check ride the next day and the training wheels are off, I’m now a private pilot.
Personally I’m a manager at the largest RV service facility in Oregon. So I can genuinely appreciate what it takes to have to do something like this. Getting a customer in and out happy is one thing. Staying late, keeping a tight schedule, and getting a customer out happy is entirely another. An employee that understands when to adjust standard operations and has the work ethic to do it, in my opinion is a very, very valuable. I would feel justified in calling this platinum level customer service. I really don’t know anything that could have made this interaction any better.

"From the very first time I called your establishment I sensed it was different. What came through clearly from the beginning is that you wanted to get it done to the highest standards, and cared about accurate communication. Initially, upon first meeting, each of you in your own way made me feel important and appreciated in a way that felt genuine in addition to professional. The culture you have created within your organization is very special. It goes beyond business to a level of competence and professionalism that is very rare in the general aviation industry. I have never been in an FBO of your caliber, or an avionics department with such careful organization...You all initially made me feel in good care, and with familiarity, even in better care. This goes beyond general expectation in business. In our society, we often experience after the initial sales pitch and the contract is signed, there will be less effort put forth to produce excellent results. In the case of Hillsboro Aviation I experienced more care and more personal attention as time progressed, even with the unfolding of unexpected production difficulties...This is not typical business practice in our culture, and a true breath of fresh air."

"I found the ADS-B traffic display on the instrument panel and the iPad to be a great early warning system to the PIC. Long before I came within visual range of proximity traffic, I could see it displayed in my hockey puck and could preliminarily determine whether the traffic would pose a risk…. I could have easily vectored myself away from the traffic without ATC assistance, because I could see its position, altitude, direction of travel, and groundspeed…I have never felt so airworthy during the 21 years that I have owned my plane."

"We recently decided to upgrade our 1964 Bonanza avionics panel with the inclusion of ADS-B out and in technology. Chris made it easy and swapped out our Garmin 530W giving us credit towards a GTN 750 and GDL 88. Chris and his team at Hillsboro Aviation then undertook a challenging installation with many complications and did the work in a timely and professional manner. Chris did an excellent job with installation as well as providing ongoing support and troubleshooting. After flying with our new avionics for a couple of months we are very pleased with everything - what a transformation!"
