Management @ Global Aviation

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.

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

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.
