Cessna has selected Hillsboro
Aviation (HAI) as its only authorized dealer in Oregon, Washington,
Idaho and Montana for Cessna Caravan turbo-prop airplanes. HAI is
also an authorized dealer for all Cessna single engine piston

Northern Idaho. "Hillsboro Aviation fit the bill because of its
excellent reputation as a reliable, quality conscious,
service-oriented company," said John Doman, Cessna's Vice

When Cessna Caravans first took to the skies more than 20 years
ago, their popularity took off, too. Today the single-engine
turbo-props operate in more than 70 countries around the world. To
date, Caravans have flown more than 5.6 million flight hours
(nearly one billion miles or 2,000 round trips to the moon).
Every month, Caravans log more than 30,000 hours of flight time,
primarily for cargo hauling, but also for personal transport,
paramilitary campaigns, police surveillance, geological surveys,
bush, and amphibious operations.
New Caravans feature state-of-the-art avionics packages that
provide pilots with near real-time textual and graphical weather
information, a traffic surveillance and warning system, and a
terrain awareness and warning system.
"The Caravan has proven itself to be one of the most reliable,
versatile, and cost-effective airplanes ever built," said Max
Lyons, president of Hillsboro Aviation. "We are pleased and honored
to be selected as the Caravan Authorized Sales Representative in
