Truckee Tahoe Airshow and Family Festival 

Saturday June 22 - 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Bring your family and friends and enjoy our exciting activities at this year's airshow!  Watch our Glider flight demonstration with a simulated rope break! Bring your kids to the STEM Expo to try our glider simulator. Get close to our two gliders on display, stop by our main tent (next to our gliders) for special discounts on scenic glider rides and gift certificates, learn about glider ratings for power pilots, and ask questions!  

 

 

 

 

Weekend BBQs

  • The BBQ is on every Saturday night, just throw something delicious on the grill and enjoy the camaraderie.

  • Beer is on tap in the Shedo! Bring your own wine or other tasty beverage.

  • Even in the middle of summer, it gets chilly up in Truckee at night.  We have a fire pit and put it to use most evenings when the Fire Marshall approves its use.

2023...

2022...

The 2022 season started late due to the uncertainty about our lease with the Truckee Tahoe airport, and resulting staffing challenges. We had a successful Region 11 Contest in June and a couple of 1000K flights in August and a record Labor Day weekend. Overall it was a decent season.
