You are invited to contact us anytime for a hangar tour.  Our next event will be our winter safety seminar.  Check back here for details.


We are a Twin Cities flying club based at Lake Elmo airport, 21D, in Lake Elmo, MN. Tailwinds is a non-profit corporation of 39 pilots who equally own three aircraft and one hangar. Our goal and philosophy are to fly great airplanes safely and inexpensively.  Here is a Pioneer Press article about Tailwinds and flying clubs in general.
