August 12th launch postponed due to TFR

Our Saturday August 12th launch has been postponed. Due to temporary flight restrictions in place while the President is in New Jersey, no rocketry is permitted within a 30 mile radius of Bedminster.

We hope to schedule a makeup launch later this month, once the President has concluded his stay in NJ. Stay tuned for updates.

Next Launch – Saturday August 12th – Risk of TFR

Our next launch is scheduled for Saturday August 12th. Please be aware that tentatively from August 3 to August 20 a Presidential Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) may be in place. If a TFR is in effect on our scheduled launch date we will need to postpone. We’d then reschedule to the earliest reasonable date beyond the TFR. Stay tuned for updates!
