We are canceling the March launch due to airspace conflict with the Luke Days airshow. We'll still be out camping, playing with the kites, R/C cars, planes, helicopters, and other nonsense.

Tripoli Phoenix, Prefecture #47, or TRAPHX (pronounced "traffics") is a small and casual but dedicated group of high power rocket flyers with a launch site northwest of Phoenix and enjoying a 50,000' FAA Altitude waiver.

The core membership is a group of enthusiastic altitude junkies, and this spirit can be seen in the bulk of the flights at each monthly launch. All sizes and shapes of rockets are represented at each launch from low power Estes rockets to massive and spectacular composite propellant projects, but given our waiver and flying site the bulk of the flights are in the upper end of this spectrum.
