AIRFest 22, the mid-west's premiere regional launch sponsored by
is set for September 2‑5, 2016
renowned Argonia, Kansas
AIRFest 22 takes place over Labor Day weekend. Late summer is "prime-time" for rocketry in Kansas;
we experience generally pleasant temperatures and pristine field conditions after the wheat harvest and
the fields are plowed in preparation for next year's crops. The fact is, this time of year, there
simply are not very many places for rockets to hide. Those who have joined us for AIRFest or LDRS in
the past know that Argonia is the place to be for the final summer blast.
For our AIRFest regulars, you will enjoy all the great conditions you have found at past launches:
the wide-open space of the Kansas prairie; plenty of launch pads - no waiting; super-high 50,000' waiver.
In addition to all that, you will be treated a real show by rocketeers from all across the U.S.A who bring
there extreme projects to Argonia to enjoy the great launching conditions in Kansas.
The current edition of the TRA Research Safety Code permits adult members of TRA
and NAR to launch high-power rockets throughout the full 4 days of AIRFest 22. Find more details
on the Flyer Info page.
Who will fly the highest or the fastest? Which rocket will be the loudest or the most "spectacular"?
