These guys are in Waukesha. I believe they used to go by the name of Side By Side Aviation. At least that was the name of the flight school from which I took my required transition training at Waukesha.

You might try a PM to Doug Weiler. https://vansairforce.net/community/member.php?u=1669
. He’s the president of the Twin Cities RV Builders Group, a very active RV group with several members from MN and WI. He can likely provide insight into all manner of RV training available in the frozen north.
