MC2 LAUNCH SITE INFORMATION: BURMAN FARMS

Parking:  


The Parking and Prep Area will be located in the gravel parking lot adjacent to the field. This is a business so please respect the no parking areas so the workers may move about freely. VEHICLES ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE FIELD!

Facilities:


Until we have a Waiver from the FAA and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the owner, field rules will remain basically the same. We will err on the side of caution as we only get ONE opportunity to make a good impression.

Restrooms: 

There is 1 indoor restroom at the launch site in the adjacent workshop. Having a restroom onsite is a blessing. Please leave it better than you found it! Restrooms are also located at the gas stations near the expressway exits.     
Camping: 
Camping is not allowed at the launch site. 
Grilling:
There be no grilling, or fires at the site.
Parking:
Park ONLY in the designated parking areas. Be considerate of others by parking perpendicular to the field.
Canopies:
These are permitted in the designated area, as are folding tables, lawn and folding chairs and coolers. Please bring garbage bags and haul away your own waste. You must set up and take down these items on the day of the launch. At a minimum, bringing chairs and water is a VERY good idea.

Alcohol: 
The launches are family events, additionally alcohol at the site is a violation of the safety rules. Please do not bring these beverages to the field.

Buildings:
The owner has indicated that he may allow us to use some buildings on the sight for shelter from inclement weather or for classes. If a building is open, it will be clearly marked and will be identified at the Flyer’s Safety Briefing.

Where We Fly: 

You may use the map below to obtain driving directions to the field.  Be advised that our exact location on the field varies depending on the needs of Burman Farms.  When you arrive, look for the tents.  If you are an early bird, your best bet is to wait patiently in the parking lot and do not set up your tent, unless the prep area has already been laid out.
