Based in McMinnville, Konect Aviation offers helicopter scenic tours of a vast portion of Oregon. Our tours range from the splashing waters of Multnomah Falls, the Columbia River Gorge, Portland Downtown to the ripe vineyards in the Willamette Valley Winecountry, and the expansive and pristine Oregon coast.

Konect Aviation Oregon, LLC of McMinnville, Oregon is hosting an Aviation Explorer Post Open House for the Boy Scouts of America this Saturday January, 21st at 10:00 am at the McMinnville Municipal Airport. Geared toward High School students, the Explorer Post provides students the opportunity to 'explore' aviation as a career field. Participants will get to meet aviation professionals, ask questions, and do hands-on aviation-related projects. The event is open to students and family members interested in learning more about the program.
The Open House is the first of a series of workshops introducing youth to the fun and exciting world of aviation. “This is the beginning of a long-term partnership with the Boy Scouts of America to promote aviation in our community and introduce aviation to the next generation. Due to a pilot shortage, the earnings potential for entry-level commercial airplane pilots is comparable with a graduate-level education and achievable in a fraction of the time. Youth who become aware of the opportunity, and get started, will have a huge advantage.” Says Holly Nehls, Owner and General Manager of Konect Aviation.
The event is free and open to the public.
