Upcoming EventsSOUTH CAROLINA BREAKFAST CLUB FLY-IN – JULY 19 Normally, we wait until after a Triple Tree event to do a write up but there’s some great news concerning our upcoming South Carolina Breakfast Club Fly-In breakfast scheduled for Sunday, July 19. For the first time, our breakfast is going to be prepared by Johnny and Shenoa Cheeks, owners of A Taste of Home restaurant in Enoree, SC! If you ever stop at Triple Tree around lunch time, chances are good that you will eat at this restaurant as it is absolutely one of our favorites. Johnny and Shenoa prepare some of the very best southern “home cooking” you will ever taste. They plan to fix all of the standards such as scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, homemade biscuits, etc. PLUS a very special breakfast dessert personally requested by Mr. Pat. We’ll keep the dessert a surprise but we think it is going to become the new standard setter for all SC Breakfast Club meetings!
The tower will be open at 8:00 am. Please utilize the published arrival procedures and plan to park on the east side of the runway. As usual, we will have our expert ground ops crew to guide you to parking.
Make plans now to come. Also, please visit our website (www.tripletreeaerodrome.com) and go to the South Carolina Breakfast Club tab. Once you arrive at the webpage for this event, you will see where you can indicate if you’re planning to come. Please take a second and complete this section. There’s no obligation but it gives us an idea of how many arrivals we could expect so that we’re properly staffed and have the right amount of food.
We look forward to seeing you then

YOUTH MASTERS (RC) – JULY 25-26
Well, in just a couple of weeks the young guns of RC modeling will be back at Triple Tree for another shoot out! These kids and their flying skills are just amazing as they compete for the title of Youth Master 2015. Come on out and join the competition or just come watch. You’ll see high performance model airplanes doing things you never dreamed possible. Each year, the young competitors bring a new bag of tricks to the sanctioned IMAC competition. It’s always an exciting, enjoyable weekend where competition joins “Fun, Fellowship and Hospitality”!
EDUCATION CENTER GROUNDBREAKING
The mission of Triple tree is “To ignite and Expand the Passion for Aviation”. It’s what we’re really all about. Our events, in addition to providing tremendous enjoyment, also fund our ongoing educational efforts. Each year, hundreds of children come to Triple Tree to learn about airplanes, aviation, aviation opportunities and to enjoy the beautiful Triple Tree facility. These educational sessions are expanding in both size and scope and we are receiving more and more requests from various educational entities. In the past, we held these classes in our main hangar. Since our aircraft are not museum pieces and fly, this required a great deal of physical work to set up and break down every time we held a class. Recently, through the generosity of Mr. Robert Shaw, we were able to begin the civil work and purchase a new metal building which will soon become our new, permanent education center. This facility will house computer simulators, aviation related educational displays and a classroom setup complete with AV equipment. The facility will be located to the right of the current maintenance hangar. It will also be used for seminars during our large events. All required permits have been obtained and the ground breaking is expected to commence this week!
