Eclipse Fly-in



AUGUST 20-22, 2017

Ok, you’re tired of doing the same old $100 hamburger run but you’re just itching to fly somewhere new and experience something different. How about a once in a lifetime experience…… at a once in a lifetime place, celebrated with hundreds of your best flying buddies?
Here’s the deal, on August 21, 2017, in the early afternoon, there’s going to be a total eclipse of the sun and Triple Tree will be almost directly under the path of the moon’s shadow! That means that it’s going to be “lights out” for about two and a half minutes during mid-day! Triple Tree will be one of the very best places in the world to experience this incredible event. Ideally, the experts tell us,  to best view the eclipse, you need a clear view of the sky. Well, at Triple Tree, everywhere you look is SKY!
We’re going to open the field on Sunday, August 20 at 9:00 a.m. for fly-in arrivals. Our world-class facilities will be open and non- premium camping spots will be available on a  first come-first served basis. Please come prepared with food and drinks. We will have ice and bottled water available. Sunday evening will be a great time to visit and socialize with all of your old and new flying buddies.  We’ll have a bar open at the hangar and it’ll be a great social event! Monday evening, after the eclipse, there will be a barbeque dinner at the main hangar and adult beverages will be available. We may just bring out Tempus Fugit, our fabulous TF-51, for a celebratory fly-by! Departures should be planned before noon on Tuesday, August 22.
So, how much is this going to cost you? We’ve decided that the normal admission and camping fees will be waived. In place of those fees, we’ll be asking for a donation.  The only fixed prices will be for meals and our premium campsites.  Meals and prices are as follows:
Sunday evening -$8- bring your own grilling meat. We’ll provide grills, salad, green beans and drinks.

Sunday evening -Steak Night, Filet with sides and salad.
Monday morning -Full breakfast catered by local favorite “A Taste of Home”
Monday lunch -Meat and 3
Monday evening -Barbeque dinner
Tuesday morning -Full breakfast catered by local favorite “A Taste of Home”

Please see the Eclipse Meal page for advance purchase.

On-line reservations will be available soon for these sites at Please note that there is a limited number of premium sites available. Other camping site availability is virtually unlimited.
Remember, Tripe Tree is a 501(c)3 non-profit so your donation may be tax deductible. Every cent donated to Triple Tree ultimately goes directly towards our efforts to “Ignite and Expand the Passion for Aviation” with local schools, scout groups, CAP cadets and others.
We truly hope you will join us at Triple tree for this incredible fly-in experience. We promise, it will “eclipse” any $100 hamburger you’ve ever had!
