Superstition Spacemodeling Society has obtained renewed waivers for both the Hope Site and the Airfield Site. The Hope Site remains at 10,000ft MSL (8,400ft AGL). The Airfield Site has been expanded from 6400ft MSL (5000ft AGL) to 10,000ft MSL (8,600ft AGL) with call-ins for 16,000ft MSL (14,600ft AGL). The actual altitudes used by the club will be dictated by the wind conditions since I-10 is only 2 miles north of the Airfield Site.
The Airfield Site will be the location for this year’s GHS, the date will be October 16th thru 18th.
It has been a long struggle to get these sites approved by both BLM and the FAA but it has been well worth it! SSS continues to scout other locations in an effort to prevent the situation that occurred after the loss of the Rainbow Valley site. This has been mitigated considerably by having two viable sites in hand, each governed by a different BLM office.
We look forward to seeing you at our future events!
