Who We Are
Gorge Aviation Services provides quality aviation services at the Hermiston Regional Airport, including a flight school, maintenance shop, professional pilot services and more. We are also the airport’s only fixed base operators.
Diamond Star DA40
This aircraft is one of the finest modern trainers available. The information available to the pilot from the G1000 panel is a key safety benefit, while NEXRAD weather will help you make educated decisions as you cruise along at 135KTS. Our Diamond is loaded with a fuel-injected 180hp powerplant matched with a constant speed propeller, for performance comparable to most retractable gear airplanes.
Piper J3 Cub
When Mr. Piper introduced the Piper Cub in 1937, he had a dream: everyone should fly. This aircraft was the trainer for decades, and still is. This tailwheel aircraft is honest and fun. Our cub is a recently restored original.
Cessna Skyhawk 172
The mainstay of all general aviation aircraft. Our M-Model Skyhawk has been recently upgraded with a new radio and Garmin 496 GPS with XM Weather. The airplane is young in hours and has the reliable Lycoming 150hp powerplant. The panel is certified for IFR operations with dual Nav/Coms and a glideslope indicator. 900lb+ useful load.
