Welcome to Midwest Navioneers


We are a mutually-supporting group of pilots and aviation aficionados with a passionate interest in flying and, in particular, flying the Navion airplane. For several decades our enthusiastic people have been gathering from time to time for aviation events, flying contests, information-sharing, banquets, and even foreign travel. This is the Midwest chapter of a branch of the American Navion Association. Its members include folks from many parts of the United States.

Here's a report on one of our most recent activities, a gathering in Indianapolis to see the Red Bull Air Race and things connected with the famous Indianapolis 500-mile race. If you want more of a taste for our group, check out our latest newsletter by clicking here.

What's happening with the Midwest Navioneers?

We have some new faces at work planning events for Midwest Navioneers in 2018!

Meet Erich and Sue Rempert. They've agreed to take the lead in guiding our group. Erich has accepted the role of President of the Midwest Navioneers, Sue has accepted the co-pilot role and will also be working to keep us on track. Several other group members have volunteered to help, and they are now working on plans for events during this year. Currently plans include two fly-ins, one this spring and another this fall. Details will be announced as they are set.

Our previous event: Midwest Navioneers in at Indianapolis

We gathered in Indy. Those of us who flew in landed at the Indy South Greenwood Airport. Some of us drove and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express next to the airport. We enjoyed the company of some of the great people who are members of Midwest Navioneers. We shared some fine meals at a variety of interesting restaurants and we saw some wonderful things that can never be exceeded--until the next Midwest Navioneers fly-in, of course
