The Scappoose Jet Center will provide business aviation solutions for commercial and private jets in need of hangar space near Portland, Oregon. It will be built on Lots 1 and 2 of Wagner Court where it merges with West Lane Road in Scappoose. The roads and private taxiway are paved, and installed infrastructure includes street lights, sewer, electrical, and fiber optic cable.
SJC will be the most convenient and practical base for jets in the Portland metro area. From the Scappoose Industrial Airpark, drive time is just 20 minutes to Portland, and 25 minutes to Beaverton/Hillsboro. Longview, Wash., is less than 30 minutes away.
WAAS and AWOS in place
The Scappoose Jet Center and Scappoose Industrial Airpark are equipped to provide a full compliment of business aviation solutions that include a newly commissioned Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), an air navigation aid developed by the Federal Aviation Administration. The WAAS system augments the existing GPS-A and localizer/DME approaches. This allows jets to navigate, land, and takeoff safely at night or in cloudy conditions.
The runway is 5,100 feet long. Runway weight capabilities in pounds are as follows:
- Single-wheel: 30,000
- Double-wheel: 50,000
- Tandem-wheel: 90,000
The Automated Weather Observing System (AWOS), pictured above right, is available by phone at 503-543-6401 or at radio frequency 135.87.
