Due to impending rain and poor field conditions, our Saturday December 14th launch is cancelled. We’ll need to review schedules with our launch team to see if rescheduling to another December date is feasible. Stay tuned!
The Christmas season is one of the farm’s peak business periods. We encourage that if you are in the area, swing by and check out all they have for sale this season. From Christmas trees to wreaths and other holiday items, there is sure to be something to help you deck your halls. Remember, shopping at the farm is a great way to show your appreciation for all they provide us throughout the year!
Here’s hoping you are on Santa’s rocketry nice list. Enjoy the holidays!
We are GO for our Saturday November 16th launch. Please note the adjusted start time and special notes below.
Our launch will start at 10 am. This is one hour later than usual to allow time for frost on the field to dissipate. Please park on the field upon arrival unless directed otherwise.
It will be cold tomorrow and a bit breezy with winds expected from the northeast. This will carry flights out away from the flight line and off to the right into the fields. Please plan your flights accordingly.
Also since it will be cold tomorrow, we encourage all who plan to fly tomorrow to arrive so that you can fly by midday or early afternoon. When its cold it can become a bit of an endurance event for our launch team, so we’ll likely wrap up once everyone present is done flying.
Winter is on its way. Come on out and enjoy some flying before the true harshness of the season sets in.
Due to some scheduling conflicts, our November launch has been moved to Saturday November 16, 2019. Hope to see you then!
We are GO for tomorrow’s launch. The fun kicks off at 9am. Please park on the field unless directed otherwise. See you then!
We are GO for our Saturday September 14th launch! Please note that there is an increasing chance of showers as afternoon rolls around tomorrow which could force us to wrap up a bit early if they materialize. You are encouraged to fly early and fly often! The fun kicks off at 9 am! We hope you will join us in poking a few holes in the sky!
Presidential flight restrictions and other logistics got in the way of us in August, but we have our sights set on our next launch, Saturday September 14, 2019! We typically fly from 9 am to about 4 pm. The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our high power waiver in effect. We hope you’ll come out and join us!
As usual we will post a final GO/NO-GO the evening before launch day based on the latest weather outlook, so be sure to check back.
We are GO for our Saturday July 13th launch. Weather looks good, though hot. We’ll kick off at 9am but may wrap up earlier than 4pm if it gets too hot. The best advice is to come by midday if you have something you want to fly.
See you at the field! ?
Our next launch is scheduled for this Saturday, July 13, 2019! The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our FAA waiver in effect. The launch is scheduled to start at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm, or earlier if all present are done flying.
This time of year there is an increased chance that the President will be visiting NJ on weekends. When the President is in the area, associated flight restrictions prevent us from flying. So far no flight restriction has been posted for this coming weekend but that could change. We will post a final GO/NO-GO based on the latest weather and airspace outlook by Friday evening, so please check back before coming out.
The weather looks to be setting up for a great launch opportunity, so we are GO for our Saturday June 8th launch. The launch will kick off at 9 am and run as late as 4 pm or until all present are done flying. We suggest arriving by midday for the best flight opportunities.
IMPORTANT: It is a busy time at the farm, As such it is required that we limit our parking to the field only! There will be absolutely NO PARKING permitted on the road and no parking across the road by the abandoned building. Upon arriving, please pull promptly onto the field so as to not impede any other farm business or visitors.
Just a reminder and request too. It probably goes without saying, but please help us leave the land looking even better than before we arrived by picking up any trash you see, even if it is not yours. This includes anything you might find along the flight line, spent motors, wadding, igniter wires, or any random trash you might encounter out in the fields. Round it up and we’ll help dispose of it.
One last note. The farm is a business. While you are out for a fun day of flying, please consider patronizing the farm by doing a little shopping at the greenhouses. Farming is a tough business these days, so all we can do to help our gracious hosts is appreciated. Thank you!
We hope everyone had a good May. Welcome to June! And with June comes our next launch, scheduled for Saturday June 8, 2019 starting at 9 am and running as late as 4 pm. The range will be open to low, mid, and high power fliers with our high power waiver in effect.
We’ll post a final GO/NO-GO for the launch by Friday evening based on the latest launch weather outlook and any other launch status updates in the interim as warranted.
