Hello to all of our Flyers.


We really hate cancelling our Launches especially since we did not have one in August but we had several “Gotch Ya’s” all at the same time and the BARS Launch Crew will not be available for the upcoming Launch.


We have some of our Launch Crew unexpectedly out of town and others with some personal goings on which will keep them from being able to participate this month.

As for me, (Marc) I have gotten a serious foot injury and MUST stay off my foot for several weeks while it begins to heal.  Non Weight Bearing is what the Doc said. It makes it very difficult for me to get around at all, let alone at the Field.  


Now with the bad news out of the way,  we have some VERY GOOD NEWS……

As some of you have heard, we were getting within a few months of losing Vista View Park as a Launch Site because of  the new Park Area Construction on the big hill behind us.


Well as plans go, it looks like we will have at least another year or possibly more before it goes into effect and our Yearly Permit is in the process of getting approved by the County for our 2019-2020 Launch Year.

And we do have of plans of every so often joining our sister club, Homestead Public Rocketry at their site for a change of pace.

Again,  we apologize for cancelling but every so often “Real Life” gets in the way and stops us from doing what we love to do… Launch Rockets.

As a Reminder, The West Palm Club has a Launch up at Dyer Park on Saturday September 28th and Homestead had their next Launch on October 5th 2019.  You don’t want to miss these!

And one last thing,  Our Vista View Park, Park Manager Mr. Chris Deal has been promoted and will be the new Senior Parks Manager at Tradewinds Park.

If you did not know, Chris has been the driving force behind working things out between Vista View Park and Broward County which has allowed us permission to Fly at the Park. 

Chris,  from all of us  THANK YOU! and we all wish you great success in your future endeavors!

And another last thing… We wish to also send a BIG Thank You to Ms. Jessica DeChellis who is watching over Vista View for the coming weeks.  Jessica has been really great to work with and has been kind enough to work with us on the Permit renewal and it all looks good!

Take Care, Everyone and hope to see you all on October 12th, 2019

Hello to all of our Flyers,

First thing I want to say is thank you to all of the people who came out to fly with us and hosted by our  Sister Club, Homestead Public Rocketry for the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.

We had a great Launch and perfect weather.   Looking forward to Launching with Homestead Pubic Rocketry again in the future.

Well as the Title said, There will be no Launch in This Month.

August gets really hot and with the high temperatures we have been experiencing,  sitting in the Sun for several hours is not something any of us want to do….  Plus School is starting soon for many of our flyers and families.

So our next Launch will be on Saturday September 14, 2019

To all of our Flyers & Friends,

To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11’s successful trip and Lunar landing, we are holding a joint Launch with our sister club the Homestead Public Rocketry Club (HPRC).

This coming Saturday is the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.  It is time for the final prep of your Saturn 1B/Saturn 5/Lunar Module Builds to commemorate this historic occasion!

And everyone is invited and bring your Rockets and Motors of any kind from A through G motors, Clusters and Multi-Stage.



The Weather is looking good but it is going to be hot, so please remember to bring water, sunscreen and head covering to protect you from the Sun. The South Florida Sun is very strong. Even on a Cloudy Day,  you will get fried! Chairs, small covered tents, and tables are welcome as well.

We are expecting some of the News Stations and News Services to hopefully follow through and join us at the field for this historic occasion!

We are looking for a good turn out, so please join us at the Homestead Air Reserve Park 

The HPRC Field is located at:

Homestead Air Reserve Park

26851 SW 127th Ave, Homestead, Florida 33039

The Broward Area Rocketry and Homestead Public Rocketry Launch Crew will all be there and ask all of our Flyers past and present to join us as well.

Any questions,  please contact Marc @305-992-5945
