April 2019 Launch Review

March Launch Officially Canceled
Published on: 3/26/2019
UROC finally received the waiver for Frank Hunt Field from the FAA. All our 2019 launch dates moving forward are now covered and we should be able to proceed. However, the waiver that they sent is not active until the first of April, we aren’t sure why they delayed the activation date but regardless, we WILL NOT have a waiver for this weekend (March 30).

Our April launch is scheduled for April 13 and we will proceed with that as our first launch of 2019. We will not attempt to reschedule the March launch again.

This delay is disappointing, this has already been a strange year for the FAA in many ways but we are thankful that they pushed the waiver through as much as they did and that we are good for the remainder of the year.

In terms of UROC’s launches, March has always been an "iffy" month for our first launch, generally because of weather, but there are always new situations.
Starting 2019 Off on the Right Foot
Published on: 2/25/2019
2019 is shaping up to be a great flying year for the Utah Rocket Club. Our permits have been submitted and we have already received approval from the BLM and are awaiting approval from the FAA. The government shutdown affected both organizations, the BLM was very proactive and pushed our approval through to avoid any delays. The FAA is still in the works but at this time we believe everything should be in place prior to the March launch.
