Note: Daily Waiver has changed to 60,000ft AGL
During ARLISS/XPRS the military wants to do some training with GPS jamming so they don't want us to encroach on their MOA. So no high flights (above 60k) for us until next year
Monday the 11th through Thursday the 14th - AeroPac sets up and holds our annual ARLISS launch. XPRS Projects may fly, but you will need to coordinate your launch with the ARLISS ground crew. That really shouldn't impede your project unless you need our launch gear and if so, you'll have to wait for an available pad (rarely is that a problem).
Friday through Sunday are for XPRS competitions and indvidual flights.
Due to Burning Man having an exclusive restricted
access for Black Rock this year, they and the BLM require all participants in
AeroPAC rocket launches print and post this
Permit (seen below) on a visible area on their vehicle(s).
Do you fly a DRONE?
Special note: AeroPac's and California Space Authority's Virtual Classroom will be providing satellite Internet service, radio base station support for Beeline and GPS Flight systems and web casting of the entire launch from that point on.
For those of you planning to fly over 30,000' please read this.
