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.
Finding the right location to learn to fly a helicopter or airplane is the first step in getting the best training. At Konect Aviation we want each student to be successful and confident in flying helicopters and airplanes.
Every student gets personal one-on-one training to ensure the best learning experience.
At the McMinnville Municipal Airport we are offering FBO Services to the general aviation community such as fuel and pilot supplies. We are focusing on making your arrival and departure at our Oregon Wine Country airport the best experience with the greatest service that you deserve.
