FFFF — Update

Posted: August 22, 2017

An update on the location of the Final Frontier Fun Fly launch. Due to crops in the fields next to the Ellinwood Airport, this launch will be moved to the Lanterman Family Farm. This is just a few miles away from the airport. Please see the Launch Sites page for directions.

Final Frontier Fun Fly

Posted: August 8, 2017

The next scheduled KOSMO launch is often one of the biggest each year. It is the Final Frontier Fun Fly at the Ellinwood, KS Airport. This launch includes an FAA waiver to 10,000ft, so there will be high power rockets flown, as well as smaller low-mid power rockets. This is a great launch to come out and watch, or bring some rockets and fly them. The FFFF launch is scheduled for Saturday, September 16, starting at 10:00am. If the weather does not cooperate that day, an alternate is scheduled for September 30.

Spring Weather Not Cooperative

Posted: April 12, 2017

So far the weather for 2017 has not been cooperative. We had scheduled three dates for the Spring Fest high power launch and all three of those days had to be canceled due to weather related issues. The next scheduled launch is for this Saturday, and it looks like it will be windy too. Nonetheless, KOSMO members are planning to meet in Hutchinson this Sat, April 15, rain, shine, wind, or otherwise. We may or may not launch any rockets, but we will get together and hang out if nothing else. Come by and join us.
