KOSMO Launch Sites

This page contains some instructions to get to our primary launch sites. We hope to have more complete information available soon.

Ellinwood Kansas — Airport

We actually have two locations near the town of Ellinwood Kansas available to us. Which one we use depends mostly on the season and what crops are growing at either location.

Ellinwood is located along US-56 about 9 miles East of Great Bend. To get to the airport, take NE 100 Ave (also Park St in Ellinwood) to the North of town. The airport the first left outside of town. Follow the KOSMO signs to the exact location.
