We are GO for our Saturday March 9th launch. We will kick of at the usual 9 am. How late we run will be determined by ground conditions and turn out. Come early if you want to be guaranteed a chance to fly.
Important: The field is snow covered with at least a few inches of snow. Wear boots! There will be absolutely no parking on the field. We got the OK to fly but need to be safe. Please park along the access road in a manner which will not block the flow of traffic into or out of the farm. Pull as far to the side as you can, but be careful not to get stuck in any of the snow. If your vehicle can not fit in a fashion which won’t block traffic, you will need to quickly unload and then park down by the greenhouses and walk back. Your cooperation is crucial and appreciated.

Our next launch is scheduled for Saturday February 9, 2019. Deep into winter now its hard to forecast just how weather conditions will be on launch day. Be sure to check back the evening before launch day for latest GO/NO-GO update based on the latest weather outlook. February launches have been challenging for us most years, so our fingers remain crossed that we will be able to get one in this year.
Happy New Year to all! We are excited to kick off a new year of flying with our first launch of 2019 scheduled for Saturday January 12, 2019. As always, our launches are weather dependent so be sure to check back for launch updates, and a final GO/NO-GO for this launch date the day before.
Flying at the farm can be a bit more challenging in the winter depending on how Mother Nature treats us. One common condition will be the potential for early morning frost on the field. In cases where this looks to be a likely condition we may opt to adjust our launch start time a bit later (an hour or so) than the typical 9 am start. This would provide an opportunity in some cases for the field to defrost a bit before we venture onto the sod. We’ll post final start time specifics for each winter launch date along with the final GO/NO-GO announcement for each launch, so be sure to check for these updates.

While you are at the farm, please remember the great people at the farm who allow us use of their land to hold launches throughout the year. The Country Christmas Shop is now open at the farm. You can pick up a fresh cut tree, a beautiful handmade wreath, or other seasonal decorations. A perfect way to decorate your home while saying “thank you!” to our hosts.
Sorry folks but we are going to have to scrub for tomorrow’s (Nov 10th) launch. Tonight’s soaking rains are leaving the field in a condition unsuitable for our use. Also, tomorrow strong winds are expected which will exceed safety limits, not to mention would make for some unpleasant flying. We’re checking our calendars and will announce a makeup date shortly. We are as eager to get out there and fly as you are. Sorry for the inconvenience, but sometimes Mother Nature wins!
