CRG's April 2019 HPR Launch at Ardlethan

Postby Voyager » Sat Mar 30, 2019 2:31 pm

Canberra Rocketry Group's 1st high power launch for 2019 will take place from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th April at our Ardlethan launch site, weather permitting. This is an extended launch due to the timing of Anzac Day.

The Ardlethan launch site currently has a ceiling of 15,000 feet (under review to increase this to 25,000') and is located in wide open paddocks with few trees. We will also be launching low and mid power rockets.

All rocketeers are welcome to come along and fly to their certification level. Launching will kick off about 8:30 each morning and will wrap up at 5pm each day, except Sunday when we pack up at around midday. If you would like to come along, let us know through either a message on Facebook or through email to

CRG has the launch equipment to launch low, mid power rockets on rods and high power rockets on 1010 rail (up to 3 metres long) and 1515 rail (3.6 meters) on a reinforced frame. We have hybrid launch capability, but rocketeers are more than welcome to bring along their own launch kit if they need something that we do not have. Contact us via our email address and we can discuss if our kit fits your system.
