To All Our New Friends
from the
New England Air Museum

We met LOT'S of people interested in rocketry when we exhibited at the New England Air Musuem's Space Expo event on March 29. We hope to see all of you again at one of our launches this summer.

Remember, kids fly free, and we have a bucket of rockets available for use by kids who don't have their own. We will be happy to show your child(ren) how to set up a rocket and fly it!

Picture of the Month for March 2014
Boy, are these pictures sad! This is why the March launch was cancelled. First, we have to get our trailer unstuck from that pile of snow, and then we would be flying on this field. See everyone in April!
HELP!  The Trailer is Stuck!
At least Brad won't set the field on fire!
Picture of the Month for September 2014
Edward Lakatos flew this amazing scratch built foam rocket on two G40W motors. Edward's rocket is ten feet tall but only weighed 36 oz on the pad!

Special Edition : CATO Cert Flights
We had one Level 1 certification at the June CATO launch, and three CATO members flew certification flights at URRF 2 in Potter, NY. (What, you weren't at URRF? You missed great weather and a 23500 ft ceiling!)
Congratulations to all who certified and who now qualify to spend evern more money on motors.
Richard Haufman flew his Wildman Jr on an H152BS to earn his L1 at the June CATO launch.

Picture of the Month for April 2014
(OK ... It's really a video)
This amazing video is submitted by our illustrious president, taken from his Formula 54 flying on a CTI G88SS.
Now, there are plenty of rocket videos. What makes this one truly amazing it that it is Al's rocket, and it didn't blow up, crash, or burst into flames for no apparent reason at all!
Awesome Pic from CATO 207
First time visitor (and photographer) Roy took this picture at our March launch. Thanks Roy!
