CJ has started working on trying to find us a suitable launch site. I gave her some rough requirements to start with:
- The launch site needs to be an open area, low or no trees/buildings so there aren’t any snags on release.
- Given the prevailing winds here, we need to make sure that the area for the expected travel distance is free of major highways, big bodies of water, airports/airport approaches, etc.
CJ bought a map of southwest Michigan, and started highlighting the airports, figuring that that would allow her to start blocking out portions that were “bad”.
I never realized how many airstrips there are around here. Sheesh!
