2024 Launch Schedule

LAUNCH TYPES & POLICIES

TRIPOLI VEGAS conducts three types of rocket launches. All of them are open to the public but hold the guidelines listed here. Everyone is invited to attend to see what High Power Rocketry is all about. However, due to Insurance Regulations, only Tripoli members and qualified NAR members are permitted to fly High Power. All flyers under 18 in attendance may fly Model Rockets (A thru G motors).

The waiver is open at 8am or 9am after the launch equipment is setup up.

NOTE: Launches are date-specific per our permits and waivers and are not rescheduled for weather or other interruptions.

SpringFest and OktoberFest REGIONAL LAUNCHES

Tripoli Vegas proudly sponsors Springfest in March of each year and Oktoberfest in October of each year.

These three day events are much larger in activity than local launches and draw many more people from all over the Southwest. Many people attend from as far away as the East Coast. Rocketry activities are usually much busier than at local club launches and visitors are encouraged to be alert.

Our 2024 FAA waiver is approved with a clearance 7000 ft MSL (4200 ft AGL above the lake bed); with call-in windows to 15,199 ft AGL with approval from Tracon. There is a launch fee for ALL persons wishing to fly.

Weekend Launch Fees:
Non-members: $35.00 flat rate
Members: $30.00 flat rate
