About Our Club

Tailwinds was established in 1970 and has continually upgraded its airplanes and hanger facilities at Lake Elmo, MN (21D). Currently we have three airplanes. The two Piper aircraft are equipped with the same avionics. Our 2006  Cirrus SR20 has a state of the art class cockpit. Our airplanes are expertly maintained by member A&Ps and external services as required. Our philosophy of flying great airplanes as inexpensively as possible has drawn pilots to our club and keeps them flying. We use a web based scheduling system at www.AircraftClubs.com. About once a month during the summer months, our members get together and wash and wax the airplanes to keep them looking their best. All members take pride in our planes and care for them accordingly. After each flight, we wash off the bugs, clean the windows, and straighten out the cabin so the next pilot has a clean plane. Our By-Laws and Rules & Regulations are designed to provide structure where needed without being overly restrictive.
