So please help out!

Help make sure our launches run smoothly!

The Jobs

LCOLCO Table

  • Launch Control Officer is responsible for checking that the range is clear, the sky is clear, pressing the launch button and making sure the rocket is safely recovered. If you like making announcements, this is the job for you. (You also need to be able to make the most out of illegible scrawl on flight cards.) You must be a certified Level 1, 2 or 3 flier under Tripoli or NAR to be an LCO
  • Assistant LCO There is no level certification requirement and the assistant position is a great place to learn how to be an AeroPac LCO.

 


 

RSO

Jeanne at LCO

  • Range Safety Officer is responsible for checking that the rocket is flight worthy and proper construction techniques have been used and a proper motor has been selected. Note that with the new Tripoli insurance regulations, the RSO must be much more careful to verify that all Tripoli safety rules have been followed. You must be at least a certified level 2 flier under Tripoli (ONLY) to be an RSO.
  • Assistant RSO.There is no level certification requirement and the assistant position is a great place to learn how to be an AeroPac RSO.

 


 

Pad Manager 

Pad Manager

  • Responsible for making sure that fliers know where their assigned pad is and that the right equipment is available. It helps to be a good troubleshooter familiar with the launch gear. You must be a certified Level 1, 2 or 3 flier under Tripoli to be a Pad Manager. If you want to help out, but have no experience with range duty, pad manager is a great place to start.

 

Launch Range Angel

Mudrock2017

  • What is a Range Angel?  Someone who comes to the launch early enough to help setup the range and / or sticks around after the launch is over to help take down the range and store it in the club trailer.   It takes a special kind of good soul to sign up to be a Range Angel!  

 


PortaPotty Hauler(s)Porta Potties

  • Bring the desert restrooms out from Sparks to Black Rock and back. You don't need to even be a TRA member to haul a PortaPotty. You can sign up for one or both ways. Each way pays you $100! (dude, that's like a  half tank of GAS!!) SO if you want to be a Potty animal you'll need a vehicle capable of hauling (a compact Pickup can handle it) with a 2" ball.

Tail Light hook-up compatibility not an issue. Sani-Hut will hook them up if they match, but if your wiring does not match they'll just pat you on the bumper and let you go. This is ok as long as your tail lights are visible from behind the trailer (as they are in nearly all cases.)

Make sure to tell the Sani-Hut folks you are there for AeroPAC - NOTE: if you are the last one picking up,  they'll give you a receipt to bring out to the registration desk at the launch.
