Wiley's Seaplane Port (FAA LID: 2OG3) is a seaplane base on the Willamette River in Lake Oswego, Oregon, within the Portland metropolitan area. It was activated in March 1979, and run by Dave Wiley for nearly 30 years.
Wiley, a founder of the Columbia Seaplane Pilots Association, was one of two pilots killed in a Willamette River floatplane crash on July 28, 2007. After an investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board reported probable cause of the crash was "corrosion" and a "fatigue fracture" involving the left wing of the 67-year-old float-equipped Taylorcraft BF12 owned by Wiley.
