High Power Rocketry at Black Rock

I’m going to attempt the trek out to the Black Rock Desert in Nevada this weekend so I can watch Aeropac’s high power rocket launch. Aeropac has a launch waiver up to 100,000 ft. so there should be some exciting rocket flights!

As some of you know the playa is an interesting and challenging environment. This time of year there can be lakes, floods and lots of mud. Here is a recon video shot yesterday.

  1. That was a blast (ugh). I’ll no doubt be at the local rocket emporium soon looking for something in the J engine range. Another expensive time consuming hobby just waiting to happen. Glad you were able to come up to Reno for a bit. See you soon.
