Note the date change!
High winds and a moderate chance of rain are forecast for Saturday's scheduled launch window, so SARA has moved the scheduled January 21, 2017 launch to Sunday, January 22, 2017 9 am - 1 pm. Sunday's forecast calls for cool temps in the 40s and 50s, winds between 5 and 10 mph, and a low chance of rain.

SARA has received FAA authorization to operate Class 2 high power rockets from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. this Sunday, January 22, 2017, at the TIMPA facility in Avra Valley. The operating altitude is from the surface of the Earth to 6,500 ft. above ground level.

As always, the use of spark producing motors is subject to the Range Safety Officer's review of field conditions.  Do not automatically assume that spark producing motors may be flown.

We hope to see you out there!
