Grass field jet flying at its best!

Billed as a Pro-Am Invitational, the 2nd annual Triple Tree Jet Rally offered a unique opportunity to introduce some R/C pilots to turbine jet flying utilizing the JR Pilot Link system.
The Triple Tree management group is considering expanding the scope of future events so that more enthusiasts can enjoy the amenities of their most beautiful model flying facility.
As information on the '06 event evolves we will surely pass it on via this website.

Certainly one of the highlights of our Pro-Am efforts was introducing Holly & Brandon Hendricks to jet flying.
Tom Dodgen did the honors with the factory demo BobCat (P-60 power).

Billy - the very proud dad looks on as Holly concentrates on the jet.
Brandon has some 3D experience and was quite comfortable with the BobCat.


Nir Schwietzer from Maryland exercised his BobCat dozens of times during the most pleasant 3-day event.
Life long friend, Dr. Andy Finizio traveled from Potomac, Maryland to thoroughly enjoy his hobby. Andy is now quite proficient with his KingCat and this gorgeous BVM Phantom with Titan power.


Almost a "MiG Alley" reenactment, the Sabre flown by Scott Harris and the MiG-15 by Tom Dodgen thrilled the spectators.


Two year old Colin Sadler was particularly interested in the Blue Angel Phantom. So much so he even delayed his nap to watch Dustin fly it.
