Management @ Global Aviation, 24 June 2015 [cached]
Flo Newton - President
Flo Newton is President of Global Aviation. She founded the company based at the Hillsboro Airport (HIO) near Portland, Oregon, in 1995. Today, Global is recognized as the premier fixed based operator in the Pacific Northwest as well as a national leader in the executive jet charter industry.
Newton's love of travel began when she studied abroad in her first year of college. This passion inspired her profession in the aviation industry, which she started in 1981 at Louisiana Pacific Corporation. Reporting to the Chairman, she outlined the company's ability to offset their fixed costs through charter services using four aircraft within their fleet. Newton was appointed to manage the new department and was responsible for all aspects of charter operations, sales, and customer service. She directed the charter department until her departure in 1995 having created a reputation for unsurpassed service catering to international dignitaries, royalty, entertainers and athletes.
Recognizing the need for a west coast based FBO of distinction, Newton founded Global Aviation.
Newton currently serves on the Board of the Providence Heart and Vascular Foundation and has been active in activities associated with Medical Teams International.

The company's President Flo Newton said: "There was a long period of negotiations with Shell Aviation, but they really showed that they wanted to work with us and they had the best offer."
It could never be said of Flo Newton that she would ask anyone to do anything she would not do herself. Although she heads Global Aviation, she is still very much involved in the day-to-day charter business and has even been known to crew flights.
"It's hard to break away from it all," explained Flo, who founded the company in 1995. She had been running Louisiana-Pacific (L-P) Corp, the eponymous timber giant's corporate aviation department, since 1981, but it closed down its charter operation. This prompted Flo to decide to work from her home in South West Portland, starting up Global Aviation as an independent broker which would book flights for former L-P clients on private jets owned by other companies. She subsequently acquired a hangar from L-P at Hillsboro Airport, and a second was opened in 2001.

"Over the past few years, Global Aviation has been expanding our participation in events such as this in order to reach out to attract more business to the Portland/Hillsboro area. I am happy to act as an ambassador for my company, as well as an advocate for Oregon economic development," she explains.
