Ringing in the New Year provides us the opportunity to see what we liked and disliked in the previous year while making plans to make the New Year better. That is true for the Minnesota Pilots Association. We had much to be thankful for and proud of in 2016, but are really looking forward to some changes in 2017. First, we have responded to those who really wanted the Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering to be on a Saturday and Sunday, rather than Friday and Saturday. This year, for the first time, we will be able to celebrate aviation in Minnesota on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30! We hope you will find this to be a good change, and we are appreciative of the feedback that our members have provided.

Please stay tuned here and on our Facebook/MNPilots/ page as we roll out the schedule of events for the 2017 GMAG. Members will be getting an email asking for your ideas on subjects and/or speakers for our 2017 event. We will continue to be responsive as we strive to make the GMAG a must-see event.

Happy New Year to you all!
