The Hillsboro Airport near Portland Oregon is seeing an influx of 
private corporate jets. Nike has had a hanger there for years. Several 
Intel plants, Intel Suppliers and other high-tech companies are in the 
neighborhood. Due to the fact that the runway is extra long for air show 
use, the local companies are taking advantage as much as possible of it.

I've worked in the area for almost seven years now and have noticed a 
large increase in airplane traffic. In the last two years alone it feels 
like air traffic has been the biggest increase. I'm willing to bet a lot 
of the other smaller airports near large cities are seeing the same 
increase in private traffic.
