April Launch Canceled

In classic Air Force manner, the airspace manager has sent an email out last minute canceling their approval for our launch tomorrow.

It has been pointed out that some land that may make a good launch location exists near California City that we originally dismissed due to it being BLM land ( which means we will have to pay to use it). I will check and see if it is outside of the airspace we are currently under and if it is I will verify cost and submit the FAA waivers needed to move our launch location there. This new area is a dry lake bed outside of cal city called Koehn lake.

It has become apparent that the increased weekend use of the airspace by the Air Force, is not a fluke or a temporary thing

March Rocket Lab

Hey all,

 

Just a friendly reminder that we have our rocket lab build session at the usual place and time tomorrow, noon to 3pm! Bring whatever you want to work on, but if you are planning in attending our night launch in July I definitely recommend checking in on the requirements, and getting some work done there! Check events for more details!

Feb 10th Rocket Launch is a Go

Hello Everyone!

Our launch for this Saturday from 0900-1400 has been approved. It is always possible that a last minute mission can happen, but as of right now we are good to go. For directions on how to get to the launch site, go here: http://www.skarclub.org/launch-information/

 
We will have some motors available, all sizes of launch rods, and we will be attempting a makeshift rail setup.
 
If you need motors you can contact Mike at Bay Area Rocketry http://bayarearocketry.com/ or mike@
