    3rd Annual Young Aviators Fly-In

    Triple Tree AerodromE

    June 19-21, 2020

    The Third Annual Young Aviators Fly-In will be held June 19 -21, 2020.

    During the second annual Young Aviators held last year, hundreds of airplanes and over 500 spectators flocked Triple Tree to experience the popular, 400 acre, aviation destination. 

    Throughout the weekend, guests were able to take part in various types of remote control and general aviation flying. 83 students were also given their very first airplane ride thanks to the Young Eagles program. Eager students were also given the opportunity to sit-in on educational seminars, career programs, and ask professional aviators for valuable career advice.

    2020 Youth Masters
    June 26-28, 2020

    One of the best kept secrets in RC (till now!) is the Youth Masters IMAC competition that takes place in Woodruff, South Carolina at the Triple Tree Aerodrome each year. 


    Founded in 2000, students were broken into two classes; Basic and Advanced.  Advanced class had 5 contestants and Basic the remaining 24.  Five giant scale aircraft complete with radios and gas, as well as sequence sheets, and even stick models are provided for the competitors.  All that the kids needed to do to compete was show up and fly.  There is no entry fee, and several meals were even provided for the attendees by crew at Triple Tree as well as the parents

    Youth Masters is open to pilots up to 16 years old.
