What a great July launch we had! The weather cooperated with very light to no “W” and temps in the high 90’s. There was as a total of 143 flights. Congratulations to the four successful Level 1 certifications, five Level 2 and a beautiful Level 3 cert flight on an M1939 by John Williams. Payton Kramer’s hybrid rocket “Wasting Dad’s Money While I can” flew flawlessly on an Contrail M1491! There were four 2-stage flights and five cluster flights including a really sweet launch of Derek Jamieson’s “Night Hawk” on three G125s and four G80s! Brian Morilak’s upscale Comanche III “Three Times The Fun” was really cool as was Rob Lees Polecat Wocket on a J250 Skidmark. There were many other crowd pleasing flights and a few spectacular cato’s throughout the day. All in all a great day!
Thanks to the volunteers and Board members who make ROC launches run smoothly month after month.

Our July monthly launch is this Saturday. Setup will start at 7am, with the range opening once setup is finished. Help with setup and teardown is always appreciated.
The forecast calls for a sunny, dry, calm and hot day with a high in the mid 90s. Be sure to bring plenty of water and sun protection. Arrive and fly early to beat the heat-the range won’t stay open late if it’s too hot and there aren’t many flights.
