Sunday 2nd October Grass Valley launch has now been rescheduled to Sunday 9th October due to pending inclement weather.
The forecast is for winds from 28km/h - 32km/h and occasional showers.

This will be the last launch for the 2016 flying season.

Regrettably the weather conditions are once again looking unfavourable for rocket launching this weekend. The unseasonal conditions have persisted longer than anticipated and while today (Friday) is ideal conditions, a cold front is due to later tonight bringing moderate to strong NW turning WSW winds and are they not expected to abate prior to the weekends launch.

As such, we have taken the unprecedented steps to once again POSTPONE the scheduled launch. Under our normal arrangements, we would simply cancel the event, but due to the longer rainy period, we are able to re-schedule to the following weekend, being Sunday 16th October.

The launch will be held at our Grass Valley range and will commence at 09:30.

This will be the FINAL launch for the 2016 flying season.
