About Cloud 7








About us

Twin City Cloud 7, Inc., was founded in 1966 by seven pilots with one Skyhawk. The purpose then, as now, was to provide well-equipped, professionally maintained aircraft at a reasonable cost per hour.

Through the years, the officers and directors have increased the owner’s equity while constantly improving the equipment to the present fleet of two Cessna 172 Skyhawks, two C182 Skylanes, and two C210 Centurions.

By utilizing the aircraft to the fullest and by close control of maintenance, without sacrificing quality, costs have been held to below what lesser equipped planes cost to rent from other sources.

The number of owners varies, and new faces appear while old ones leave. From the ones that leave, the most quoted reason for leaving theĀ organization is relocation to another area. The number two reason for selling a share is the purchase of a private airplane by one or two persons, a goal many would like to attain but with cost rising so rapidly, ownership is the only reasonable alternative. Rarely have we heard of anyone leaving because of dissatisfaction with the organization or the equipment. Many who have left because of a move have rejoined when they returned to the Twin Cities which is the best testimonial we can think of.

Twin Cities Cloud 7 is located at the Flying Cloud airport in Eden Prairie, MN.
