We are very pleased to invite you to support general aviation in Minnesota and the United States of America by sponsoring, exhibiting and advertising at the 10th Annual Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering!

This event is sponsored by the Minnesota Pilots Association (MN Pilots), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, grass-roots organization whose mission is to promote and protect aviation in Minnesota through advocacy, education, outreach and social activities and by a number of business and aviation-related organizations.

The MN Pilots Association believes that pilots and supporters of aviation in Minnesota want and deserve an annual event, which will bring together people from across the state, and from neighboring states, to celebrate the joys and challenges of aviation.

The word is out…this event is not to be missed! We had over 800 people attend this two-day event in each of our previous GMAGs– we expect an even greater attendance at the 9th Annual event!

About the Event
This year’s event will be held at the Buffalo Municipal Airport (KCFE), which is conveniently located near the western suburbs of the Twin Cities. We will have heated hangars for the event! KCFE is located just a few miles outside of the MSP Class B airspace, a fact that has increased the number of pilots who choose to fly in!

We bring together a variety of aviation-related speakers, vendors, exhibitors and sponsors who provide up-to-date information and services to those who attend:

  • Hangar Flying Sessions – A variety of dynamic speakers provide a series of in-depth, provocative presentations on topics important to pilots and aviation enthusiasts, alike.
  • Exhibitors – Exhibitor booths enable attendees to spend plenty of time visiting with vendors and organizations in an aviation environment that is second to none.
  • Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) – Chapter leaders from across the state gather to exchange ideas on how to get more children and adults involved in aviation.
  • Recognition of FAA Master Pilots and Scholarship Awardees -The FAAST will bestow the Master Pilot Awards and the Minnesota Pilots Association and other Aviation entities recognize Scholarship Awardees.

Exhibit Information
Exhibit spaces are available for vendors, aviation community organizations and groups related to aviation.  We have a limited number of exhibit spaces, so please register early. Exhibit spaces will be 10’ x 10’ and will be located in a spacious hangar.
