Welcome to the very modest website of

The Boeing Employees Model Rocket Club

National Association of Rocketry Section 627


Current Launch Status:

2/19/24 8:15 PM  

 
The weather for February 17th was pretty flyable, with occasional winds that 
made us want to take a pause.


36 flights were made by a small but enthusiastic group.
Two of Dave McCammon’s models were treed
up on the west wall (and beyond). All others were recovered.

Here’s hoping for at least as good conditions on March 16th.


Our 2024 planned launch dates are posted below.


BEMRC Launch Schedule

BEMRC launches are on the second or third Saturday of the month (see dates listed below)

The range typically opens at about 11 AM.

Flights are limited to D total impulse (20 N-s) and approximately 1000 foot maximum altitude (or less depending on conditions at launch time).

We MAY be able to support National Rocketry Competition flights at our regular club launches. I can have an adjustable tower (the Apogee unit) and NAR contest flight cards available. Those flying duration events will need to arrange for timers. Loaner PerfectFlite FireFly or Altus Metrum MicroPeak altimeters can be made available for those flying B Eggloft Altitude or B  Payload Altitude if arranged for in advance (but see below).

The events for the 2023-2024 NRC season (through the end of June 2024) are: 

We might be able to support flying most a few of these…1/2A HD, B Egg Duration and possibly B Payload Altitude might work and stay on the field. Please let me know a day or two in advance (but see below) if you would like to make an official NRC flight at any of our launches. 
 

However I have NOT, at this time, put any of our 2024 launches on the official calendar for NRC events,
so if you want to fly NRC events, I need to know at least a week in advance so I can submit calendar info to the NAR.


2024 Launch Dates 

(as always, weather, field and fire conditions permitting)
We may have the option to shift to the day after (Sunday)

during the wetter months only. If we move to a Sunday, it will be announced
in the usual Thursday-before-a-launch emailing and will also be posted here.
