A Community of Aviation Enthusiasts

Located just south of the Twin Cities, Airlake Aero has provided safe and enjoyable flying to its members for nearly 30 years. The club has 45 shareholders/owners of all ages representing pilots of varying backgrounds and experience levels.

The Airlake Aero fleet consists of 4 airplanes stored in a heated hangar at the Airlake Airport (KLVN) in Lakeville, MN. There are different airplanes for different missions from a simple, economical 2-seat trainer to a 4-seat high performance, complex airplanes for cross-country trips.
