Photographers Information for AIRFest 22
Photographers wishing access within the flight line perimeter must purchase a special photographers identification vest from KLOUDBusters at a cost of $35. If you don't have a vest purchased from us you will not be allowed on the range.

Only PROFESSIONAL Photographers will be allowed on the flight line. To get a vest and badge to gain access to the flight line, you must complete a "AIRFest 22 Photographers Access Form" prior to the start of AIRFest 22 specifying which publication or company you represent. "Freelance" is not acceptable. Complete the form and mail your $35 to: AIRFest 22 / KLOUDBusters Inc., c/o Science Education Center, 2730 Boulevard Plaza, Wichita, KS 67211-3812. You can pick-up your photographers vest and badge at registration when you arrive at the launch site. No refunds.

Each photographer must have a personal FM radio on their person and listen to flight operations broadcast while on the range. No exceptions. These may be purchased at WalMart, Best Buy, etc. for a nominal cost. All launch operations on the PA will be broadcast on FM and at times it is necessary to give instructions to photographers via the PA/FM broadcast.

Control of photographers on the flight line will be the responsibility of the on-duty Launch Control Officer and the Launch Director. Failure to comply with their direction will result in the immediate revocation of photographers privileges without refund.

KLOUDBusters reserves the right to limit the per-company number of photographers and the number of photographers on the flight line at any given time.

All of the above has been implemented to promote the safety of everyone attending AIRFest 22, to keep the flow of the launch running smoothly, and avoid unnecessary delays or inconvenience to flyers from photographers actions.

BREAKING NEWS: AIRFest 22 is "GO" for Sparky Motors. All Sparkies launch from the plowed field - the 60's and 70's pads. No exceptions.

KLOUDBusters has hosted LDRS at our Argonia, KS launch site: 1993, 1994, 1999, 2003, 2008, & 2011.
KLOUDBusters launches have been featured in TV programs twice: Rocket Challenge in 2003 and LDRS-Large Dangerous Rocket Ships in 2011.
