The City owns and operates the public-use Heliport for the benefit of all users. The Heliport offers convenient access to downtown Portland 24 hours a day. The Heliport is part of a multi-modal transportation hub offering access to light rail, bus, water transportation, parking, and bike share.
Location and Access
The Heliport is located atop the city’s Naito and Davis SmartPark garage located at NW Naito Parkway and NW Davis Street in downtown Portland.
The Heliport is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Access to the Heliport is limited to those who use the Heliport for transportation by helicopter. Users can obtain a numeric code to be entered on the elevator keypad for access to the Heliport at the roof-top level. For security reasons, the elevator access code will not be given out over the phone or email.
The Heliport consists of a 200 ft. by 220 ft. rooftop area, providing a landing pad, taxiways and four helicopter parking positions. There are no fueling or maintenance facilities, and the Heliport is unattended. However, fueling and maintenance services are available at Portland International Airport (6 miles to the northeast) and at Hillsboro Aviation (13 miles to the west).
The Heliport offers a conference room, which is available to Heliport users on an advanced reservation basis. The room has free wifi access available through the City Guest network. The room is not available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 6 – 7 PM while it is being cleaned. Restroom facilities and a weather station are also available.
