10/05/16 – Proposed Launch Date

Following discussions with the Dep Head (Mr Page), we have set a provisional launch date of the 22 June 2016. This will coincide with the schools sports day, the location of which could prove a suitable launch site. A view from Google Earth shows that there are no immediate obstructions so a RECCE will follow shortly to confirm the suitability.

The site is directly adjacent to two schools who hopefully will be onside with allowing us to ‘borrow’ their WiFi which is needed for communications. I also seem to recall that there are some suitable buildings in which we could establish ‘Mission Control’ and if we launch early enough in the morning the recovery may be completed before the sports day ends?

All of the above is clearly subject to agreements and of course weather!!Screen Shot 2016-05-10 at 20.52.32Proposed launch site middle of athletics track, or adjacent field.
