Flo Newton founded Global Aviation at Portland-Hillsboro Airport in 1995. Today, it's a national leader in providing executive charter flights.

In just 13 years, Flo Newton's Global Aviation has become a national favorite in the highly competitive world of business jetliner charters, recognized by Fortune 500 executives, celebrities and private jet operators as the premier fixed base operation in the Pacific Northwest.
She credits her company's popularity to its top-flight personalized care of clients, attention to detail, skilled aircraft maintenance and outstanding trip management performance. Based at Portland-Hillsboro Airport (HIO), Oregon's second busiest airfield with more than 220,000 annual flight operations, Global Aviation operates a fleet of six Lear, Hawker, Challenger and Falcon business aircraft.
Employing 53 people, Newton promotes Global Aviation as a financially sound business with no debt, which gives the growing company more options for expansion.
"We already have two 24,000-square-foot hangars for our leased planes and a smaller 15,000-square-foot hangar," Newton said.
"Years ago, many people weren't thinking as much about charter flights," Newton said. "Today's worsening commercial air travel conditions and increased travel demands for businesses are making corporate flying much more attractive."
She also noted that the cost of chartering flights is far less than keeping corporate planes on the balance sheet. Global's fleet of seven-to-nine passenger executive aircraft is leased at a variety of rates, including a Lear 35 at $2,450 an hour, a larger Lear 45 at $3,100 and a Challenger 604 for $4,900. Global also offers a Hawker 800SP, available hourly at $3,400, and a Lear 60 at $3,300. In June, the charter service added a Falcon 900EX to handle its clients' growing needs.
Global also sets up ground travel, lodging or other necessary arrangements.
"We've even using today's higher fuel prices as an opportunity to save our clients money by developing our own Fuel Economics Dispatcher," Newton said.
Newton said Shell Aviation is a world leader, having been named early in 2008 as the best international jet fuel marketer for the second consecutive year.
Newton has come a long way with her business in just a few years. She built her services on her experience running a charter service from 1981 to 1995 for Louisiana-Pacific, a major timber products company. She not only headed the company's sideline business, but also often served as a flight attendant. That's when she developed her reputation for keen attention to detail and a deep understanding of the needs of corporate fliers.
When Louisiana-Pacific closed that service, she opened an independent air charter business, operating from her home.
"I had a lot of experience and connections and knew a lot of people who were good customers with Louisiana-Pacific," she said. "I started booking flights for them with private jets owned by other companies."
As her business grew, she leased a 24,000-square-foot hangar at HIO in 1997, hired a mechanic and two pilots, brought three corporate jets into the hangar and began operating Global Aviation on a larger scale. By January 2000, her hangar was filled, so she added a second one with space for a luxury suite of offices, opening the new facilities in August 2001.
Flo Newton and her staff have built a national reputation for Global Aviation's executive jet charter services, headquartered at Portland-Hillsboro Airport.
Global Aviation also bases planes at a Seattle hangar and Newton expects to grow that business, too.
