WAC AP Checkride 2013

Another late launch report.

Let me describe AP Checkride like this: On Saturday, it was windy enough that NOAA listed the weather in Mansfield as “dust”. Due to the windy conditions, there was very little flying going on. So little flying happened that I actually don’t have a photo album to show for this launch. I do, however have three photos from Sunday, when I successfully completed my NAR Level Two certification flight.

Because the rocket I intended to fly for my L2 wasn’t ready yet (see my upcoming Roll Your Own launch report for more on that), the always-reliable Same Old Blues was drafted in to fill the role. A Cesaroni J285 made for a nice boost to 4017′. This was also the first flight of my BRB900 GPS tracking system, and it worked perfectly in leading me to the rocket.

All in all a productive weekend… even if I only have three photos to show for it.
