february launch cancelled.



THE FEBRUARY LAUNCH IS CANCELLED. WIND AND LOW CEILINGS ALL DAY SATURDAY AND RAIN SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY MORNING ARE DRIVING THIS DECISION.

The trepidation and second-guessing of my own decision is a familiar feeling in my line of work as well as TRAPHX Prefect. Forecasts are imperfect and many times I’ve been bitten in the butt with clear weather prevailing, forecast be-damned.

But cancelling launches to be sure we keep rockets in waiver cylinders and roads in good condition are how we keep those waivers and flying sites. https://www.wunderground.com/forecast/us/az/aguila



Nature Abhors a Vacuum. So… Wind.

As God said to Noah, it might rain just a bit.

Just know that the TRAPHX board is employing our crack team of weather observers who are pouring over all the data from the Rapid Precesion Mesoscale, Convective-scale Numerical Predictions and the back of section A in the Sunday paper.

Stay tuned for more information about how this might affect the February launch
