A Step Back in Time: MAAC Grassroots Fly-In
Every September, the Midwest Antique Airplane Club holds their private, invitation-only Grassroots fly-in. An abundance of antique airplanes, a beautiful backdrop, camaraderie, and airplane talk all bring you back to the ‘good ol’ days’.
Taking Off Together - Flying Clubs
Flying clubs are a great way for pilots to get more affordable flight time, but they also provide a window into aviation for the surrounding communities. Hands-on experiences around the hangar and flight training opportunities are all benefits.
