Private Jet to Portland | Air Charter Advisors

Destinations > United States > Oregon

Book a private flight to Portland and experience a city where normal people go to visit, only to come home three years later with ankle length hair and extremely progressive political views. Portland is seriously the bee’s knees.

It’s the focal point of America’s modern day counter culture, and its liberal spirit is immediately recognizable in every downtown and back alley establishment. You’ll see food carts with options for locally raised beef, and vegan-only cafés with “Monsanto must die!” stickers proudly displayed on the cash register.

If you’re not scared off by the left-winged-ness of this eclectic city, then Portland Jet Charter can arrange a private flight itinerary to suit all of your needs. Our jet charter brokers are available 24/7 to arrange multiple aspects of your luxury private trip. From private flights with in-flight catering to luxury ground transportation and helicopter lifts, Air Charter Advisors can arrange it all.

Attractions and Activities

Flying private to Portland is the best way to get in to the city, no doubt about that. Once you’re in though, that’s a different story. Portland is to fixie bicycles what Los Angeles is to traffic- synonymous. There are bicycle lanes everywhere, and traffic laws are structured as to promote cycling rather than driving.

This “no car” attitude comes from the progressively green philosophy of the city, and makes sense with how the city is structured. As far as things to do go, the extremely walkable downtown is chock full of eateries with more green options than your local farmer’s market, and the tax-free shopping applies to everything from handmade knickknacks to designer clothes.

Want to get out of the city? You’re in luck because the northwest shines brightest once you’re out in the sticks. The whole region is full of vast and diverse forestry featuring snowy mountains, rare animals, and waterfalls galore. And while it’s more than possible to gallivant off into the wilderness in hopes of finding a waterfall, you may find a bear instead; so we recommend sticking to one of the many nature preserves in the area.

The Camassia Natural Area is a sight for sore-eyes if you’ve been staring at office walls for the past week. With more than 300 plant species on site and more animals than you can shake a stick at, you could spend a whole week here and not see everything.

If you aren’t feeling very outdoorsy after your private flight to Portland, then take a power nap and prep for a night on the town. Portland is iconic for its wonderfully unique nightlife, though unique may be a bit of an understatement. From hole in the wall clubs playing new-wave-pseudo-psych-trance to comedy clubs and private karaoke, you’ll find a place to celebrate just about any interest- no matter how obscure.

Do you like learning about cool stuff? Do you like beer? Well academia is brewing at the Oregon Museum of Science after dark; head there after 6pm for an adults-only chance to enjoy a booze-filled night at the museum. Peruse its best exhibits (that are gloriously devoid of children) while sipping locally crafted wines and beers- Ben Stiller would be proud.

Wherever your fixie bicycle takes you, our Portland Jet Charter team is here to make sure that you make it home in comfort – even if it’s three years after we drop you off. Keep on reading and check out our top picks of the best attractions for private jet travelers in Portland, Oregon.

Long-range jets such as a GulfstreamV/G500/G550 are the best way to fly your corporate team privately across the country or overseas, reaching domestic destinations such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle in a couple of hours (or less), while Asian destinations such as Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore require around 6-8 hours of flight time, depending on aircraft type. Rates for larger, long-range jets can vary between $6,500 – $9,000 hour, based on routing, scheduling and other factors. VIP airliners are also available for larger parties.

If you’re flying within Oregon, or to a nearby state in the Pacific Northwest, an efficient mid-size jet such as a Hawker (700/750XP, 800/800XP/850, 900XP) or a Cessna Citation VII is ideal for departures from Portland’s general aviation airports, especially at popular corporate jet hubs such as (KUAO) Aurora State Airport or (KHIO) Hillsboro Airport.

No matter which aircraft type you prefer or how long your flight is, our friendly private aviation agents will be available to you 24/7 to help plan your executive charter flight to Portland, Oregon.

Luxury Hotels

Fly private to Portland and go to sleep promptly at 9pm or read a book at 3am in a grungy café, whichever you prefer.
