The Ranger has stated that we have the green light to proceed with this weekend’s launch as planned.
We are GO FOR LAUNCH on Saturday, February 6th at the ATLAS SITE. The current weather forecast predicts un-comfortable temps but favorable wind conditions for flying. Range and waiver are expected to be ready for operation starting at 9 AM and lasting until 3 PM or until we run out of motors, lose interest or the weather chases us away, whichever happens first. This launch opportunity will be for commercially approved motors only and all flights must remain under the 12,000 foot AGL ceiling.
Please note that all launch events will be conducted using nationally approved/accepted range safety practices. The launching of rockets on NFS land is normally prohibited under Forest Service regulations. The issuance of our permit allows launches to take place for approved launch events only.
As always, help is greatly appreciated with range set up, operations and clean up. For those of you driving a long ways to visit our launch, I’d recommend checking in with your favorite weather report or call the Greeley-Weld County Airport’s automated weather line at 970-352-3511
