Frontier Friday: 6am -12:30pm and 4pm – 6:30pm
Oregonian/Oregonlive Saturday and Sunday: 6am – 10:30am and after 5:30pm

  • Check the Notices to Airmen(NOTAM’s) for actual start time of the Temporary Flight Restriction(TFR). There may be construction closures in addition to Air Show closures.
  • If you are arriving prior to the Temporary Flight Restriction going into effect, you should have no problem making a routine approach to Hillsboro.
  • For the Frontier Friday Night show, plan to arrive and be parked prior to 5:00 p.m. local time.
  • The Frontier Friday Night show generally ends with pyrotechnics, including fireworks and a wall of fire. Plan on a minimum 15 to 30 minute delay prior to the reopening of the runway while the Port of Portland sweeps and checks the runway to ensure it has not been contaminated. Please be patient as you exit after the show is over on Frontier Friday Night.
  • For Oregonian/Oregonlive Saturday and Sunday, ensure you are on the ground and parked prior to 10:15 a.m. local time.
  • Once the TFR goes into effect, it will be very difficult to enter/exit the airspace and is only allowed on emergency basis.
  • Make sure and get the Automatic Terminal Information Service(ATIS) before checking in with the Tower on frequency 119.3MHz. Call the tower at least 10 miles from the airport.
  • Expect to land on Runway 31 (wind permitting). After touchdown, either turn NE on taxiway B or Rwy 2 (if able, it’s only about 1,700 feet from the Rwy 31 threshold). Otherwise turn SE at any exit and Ground Control will direct you to spectator parking at the “Northeast T-Hangars”. From there, a shuttle will bring you over to the Air Show main gate.
  • If you arrive after the show has started, we will not be able to accommodate your landing. Hillsboro Ground control may be able to assist you on frequency 121.7.
