ARDLETAN IX – CRG High Power Launch

Postby Voyager » Sun Jul 12, 2015 2:12 pm

Canberra Rocketry Group will be holding our next high power launch at our Ardlethan site on the weekend of the 18th and 19th July 2015 weather permitting. The High Power launch site has a ceiling of 15,000 feet 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 about 5pm on the Saturday and 1pm on Sunday. 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 2.8 metres long). We are not hybrid capable at the moment but rocketeers are more than welcome to bring along their own launch kit to supplement ours or to launch their own rockets if they need something that we do not have.

Interstate flyers interested in launching at Ardlethan IX should contact us for further details by emailing

Ardlethan is about 3 ½ hours from Canberra, 4 ½ hours from Sydney and about 5 hours from Melbourne. Head to the CRG website ( and go to the High Power page for more details on the site.

The accommodation that we usually have in Ardlethan is all booked out for the towns Tin Can Shoot weekend. There is accommodation available at the Beckom pub which is about 10km from Ardlethan and is about the same distance from the launch site as Ardlethan. Most of our members that are going for the weekend are already booked into the Beckom pub so if you are looking for accommodation, give Colin a ring at the Beckom pub on 02 6978 2313.
