Flight Information

Tripoli Houston Launch Announcement

Update to the Hearne  Airport issue


FEMA has totally taken over the Hearne Airport. Until some of the trailers are gone, or we can find another location. We will be combining our launch with the Austin Area Rocket Group (AARG). Starting in February we will be flying the first weekend of the month with AARG. Check their website for the actual location https://www.aarg.org/ . The February launch will probably still be at Hutto. Our January launch will be the 2nd weekend as usual, but at the Hutto site. 





Due to hurricane harvey we will now be launching from the north end of the runway.


Flight INFO 


Flights will be limited to 5000 feet. (This will be evaluated month to month due to weather conditions and changes at the airport.) Electronics or chute release will be required for flights over 3000 ft.


Looking forward to seeing everyone

If I have a rocket to fly, what else do I need to bring with me?

Summers can be extremely warm (sometimes DOWNRIGHT HOT). In addition to your rockets and rocket motors, we recommend the following:

  • NAR or TRA membership card.
  • The Club has a first-class launch control system, PA system and plenty of launch pads.

Sunscreen, water, food, bug spray, chairs, canopies, tables etc


Tripoli Houston meets every second Saturday of every month (weather permitting) at the Hearne Airport. We launch everything from model rockets to monster high power rockets that push our FAA waiver of 16,000 feet high. Newcomers are always greeted with a smile (especially if they bring kolaches) and we look forward to meeting you at our next launch.

ATTN:   Due to Hurricane Harvey we will be launching fom the north end of the airport. We will also, be limiting flights to 5000 feet.( This will change month to month due to weather conditions and changes at the airport. ALL flights over 3000 feet will need to use electronics or a chute release.  Check with RSO.

Thank you for working with us. Houston Strong.
