TRIPLE TREE AERODROME ARRIVAL PROCEDURE

When arriving on runway 21 avoid overflying the neighboring house off the north end of the runway.


Due to the increased volume of traffic in the past few years, Triple Tree has adjusted the arrival procedures for the fly-in to accommodate the pilots AND professionals in the control tower. This will help alleviate any potential hazards and ensure a safe and expeditious flow of traffic into a fun-filled environment.

ARRIVAL PROCEDURES FROM THE WAL-MART DISTRIBUTION CENTER:

  • Approach Triple Tree (except Ultra-Lights) from a point 8 NM south of the airport.  The landmark that will be used to identify this point is the Wal-Mart Distribution Center (N 34.543’ W 81.995’) (GRD 020/19.5 NM) which is located just south of Interstate 385 and US Highway 221. This landmark will be referred to as “Wally World”.

From Wally World fly a heading of 020º along US Highway 221 and look for the town of Enoree (N 34.650 W 81.956).

  • From Enoree, fly a heading of 305º and fly directly over the Triple Tree Control Tower. Enter a midfield left downwind (northwest) for Runway 3 or, if runway 21 is the active, a right downwind. A close-in downwind would be appreciated. Tower will instruct you on landing sequence and traffic advisories at this point. 
  • All arrivals: Keep radio chatter to the absolute minimum. When checking in over Wally World and Enoree, just state your Type and Color; No “N” number. Radio congestion at this point is not safe! Monitor the multi-com frequency of 122.9 MHz as far out as practical.  Be on your toes!
  • Single engine, fixed gear, - Maintain 85 KIAS (or 96 MPH) & 1,700 MSL. Landing lights on.
  • Twins and high performance, complex singles: Same instruction as above except fly at 100 KIAS or less & 2,000 MSL. You will be overflying aircraft on the same heading off “Wally World” who may or may-not be following the altitude restrictions. Eyes outside!
  • Ultra-Lights: Enter the opposite downwind (southeast) at 1,200 MSL (500 AGL). If radio equipped, listen for advisories on 122.9. If not radio equipped, sequence yourself as best you can. Keep a close pattern and we’ll work traffic around you. Clear the runway ASAP.
  • AGAIN, your best radio etiquette and then only state your aircraft type and color e.g., “white over blue Bonanza, Wally World”.
  • Clear the runway ASAP to the east. Watch for ground ops personnel and contact ground control on 123.90.  Follow the instructions of the ground controller and ground ops personnel.  All ground ops personnel will be in orange safety vests and will have orange wands used to direct aircraft traffic. 

Once your aircraft is parked and your engine is off, double check that your mags and master switches are off and check 121.5 for ELT.

Lastly: Welcome to Triple Tree and enjoy the FUN, FELLOWSHIP and HOSPITALITY.

DEPARTURE PROCEDURES


When departing runway 21, fly runway heading until reaching 3NM (or above 2000 MSL) then proceed on course.

When departing runway 3, fly just left of runway heading until reaching 3NM (or above 2000 MSL) then proceed on course. This to avoid flying over the neighboring house off the north end of the runway.
