Launch Information

Location
The monthly club launch site is on N. Reservation Road, between Manville Road and Mile Wide Road where the Tucson International Modelplex Park Association (TIMPA) flies remote-controlled airplanes. We launch on the north side of thier property, please use the entry gate off of Reservation Road, located about 1/2 mile to the north of the TIMPA gate.

For Desert Heat only, we use the TIMPA facilities at 3250 N Reservation Rd, with ramadas, real restrooms and a parking area.

Bring a lawn chair for best viewing. There is very limited shade at the launch sites, so bring a hat and sunscreen, and please leave pets at home.

GPS coordinates are +32° 15' 53.06", -111° 16' 25.90.

Rockets may only be flown at the SARA site at club launches for insurance reasons.
