Latitude / Longitude:
Club launches are held on the third Saturday of every month, weather permitting, at Old National Pike Park in Mt. Airy, Maryland. The field can support up to G-powered motors with the appropriate FAA waivers. Launch times vary throughout the year, so be sure to check the Calendar for details. Our launches are always open to non-club members who wish to fly. NARHAMS provides launch controllers and pads with 1/8″, 3/16″, and 1/4″ rods, as well as 1010 and 20mm rails.
This will also be an NRC Launch with Don Carson (email@example.com) as the Contest Director. All NRC Events may be flown. Contestants will have to bring their own egg if they want to fly B Eggloft Duration and their own laptop to read their altimeters (if needed).
All rockets flying for their first time during the Night Launch MUST make a qualifying flight during daylight hours. This is to assure that the rocket will fly stable and that it’s recovery device will work as expected. Also, the qualifying flight is done to assure that the battery and electrical system of the illumination will stay “ON” for the entire flight – from launch to ejection charge to landing.
As always, we allow members to perform a daylight qualification of their rockets up until 6:00 pm on the day of the launch.
