Full Version: Bridgeton Area Rocket Club (BARC) HPR Launch
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
On 9/21, at the request of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the FAA issued Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR 5/4119) in support of the Papal Visit by Pope Francis taking place in Philadelphia, PA September 26th through 27th, 2015. The associated FAA Advisory temporarily suspends all flight waivers (including model rockets) operating within the TFR area, and unfortunately our Shiloh, NJ launch site is within this restricted area.

Our HPR launch planned for 9/26/15 has been cancelled due to those imposed FAA flight restrictions.

As such, BARC's Inaugural HPR Launch date has been moved forward 1 week to October 3, 2015. I hope those planning to attend the September 26th launch will be able to make it to the 10/03/15 launch. Barring further FAA restrictions, BARC will resume its regular monthly launches on October 17, 2015.

Yes it is disappointing to have that launch cancelled after waiting 93 days for the FAA to process our application...

Now that REALLY SUX! Glad I am not catholic :-)
Huh, I just happen to know the guy at FAA in charge of Pope arrangements. Saw him today in fact.
I would bodge out a Pope Rocket real quick in protest...
Perhaps it would be more prudent to just accept fate... Wink
