FlyTie were conceptualized by Bruce Roberts around a well attended campfire at Johnson Creek, Idaho, over 15 years ago. The burning question was presented to the group of “experts”. That is, “What would make the ultimate tie-down stake for aircraft?” Large quantities of libations were consumed that night and a lot of “bull” was shot. But in the end when all was said and done, more was said than done. After taking notes, Bruce went back home to his workshop in Watsonville, CA, started designing, and a company was born. Since then, FlyTies have been popularized by continuous improvement year after year. Today they are the tie-down of choice for pilots who are serious about the best quality and security for their aircraft.

Flyties are aircraft tie-down stakes to anchor aircraft into the ground. They are high quality, reliable, and penetrates harder soils. A small surface footprint prevents people tripping over them.
