Who are we?

Flight Expo, Inc., was founded by a small group of enthusiasts interested in aircraft education and aircraft preservation. It was created due to the interest generated by participation in educational seminars at the Sport Aviation Conferences held at the Minneapolis Convention Center from 1994 - 2000. These seminars included presentations on experimental aircraft, aviation history, model planes, hot air balloons, aerobatics, war birds, air racing, antique aircraft, seaplanes, modern composite construction techniques, and avionics technology.


Flight Expo, Inc. restores aircraft of various styles to teach students about the science, technology, engineering, and math involved with flying a plane.


Volunteers from multiple industries collaborate with students to share knowledge.


Each year, Flight Expo, Inc. holds multiple fundraising and charity events to generate funds to continue teaching kids.

Flying Club

Flight Expo, Inc.'s flying club provides airplane access to students at a reduced rate to encourage them to pursue their own career in aviation.


Flight Expo, Inc. depends on monetary donations from community members and businesses to purchase tools and parts.


Members meet regularly to work on aircraft, discuss organization operations, and maintain facilities.
