Range setup will begin at 8:30am and we can start flying rockets as soon as setup is done – so the more people that come early to help, the sooner we can start!
This will be a Tripoli launch held under Tripoli Research rules, so experimental motors are allowed for Tripoli members with the proper certification (although the RSO of course has the final say). We will have 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″ launch rods along with 1010 and 1515 rails. If you are launching a rocket weighing more than about 20 pounds and need the “monster” launch pad, you must let us know ahead of time, as we may not bring it if it’s not needed.
Our FAA waiver permits flights up to 7,000 feet MSL (approximately 6,500 feet AGL) with call-in windows to 15,000 MSL (14,500 AGL). If you are planning a flight over 10,000 feet AGL, please bring simulation results to show to the RSO, to avoid any risk of violating that waiver altitude. (We have a great relationship with the FAA and want to keep it that way!)
There will be a $10 launch fee for high-power fliers. Model rocket flyers will have a launch fee of $3, but this fee is waived for paid SLRA members. These launch fees are per family and good for however many flights you want to do.
