Spring News Letter for 2017!

Due to Burning Man having an exclusive restricted access for Black Rock this year, they and the BLM require all participants in AeroPAC rocket launches print and post this Access Permit (seen below) on a visible area on their vehicle(s).

They also require that all members coming out to the launch to follow the designated path as outlined in the Finding the launch site document. 

- The speed limit along the Burning Man setup area is 20 MPH. There may be signs posted and the speed limit will be enforced. Go slow.

- It's probably a good idea to carry some sort of rocketry ID like a Tripoli or NAR card or even an Aeropac membership card.

- BLM Rangers, county sheriffs, and Burning Man police will be patrolling the playa to make sure that there are no unauthorized people out there. They may stop you and ask for your authorization to be there.  The Access Permit that you printed out and put on your dash is your authorization.

-You should print out the map Finding the launch site even if you know how to get there. The authorities might ask for the map also.

Launch Schedule

All of AeroPac's launches are Research (or EX)
Daily Waiver is 60,000ft AGL
During ARLISS/XPRS the military wants to do some training with GPS jamming so they don't want us to encroach on their MOA. So no high flights (above 60k) for us until next year
