It's been awhile, but wondering if anyone here has suggestions for a great place to launch model rockets. Thank you for any help.

Any open field should be fine.

Use that big parking lot next to the NRO.

Better check the regs. FAA expanded the scope of airspace restriction to something like 30 miles.

Just another "benefit" to living here.

I used to launch them in a field in Chantilly but there's a huge office park there now.

You could always go to college and become a real rocket scientist. Then play with the real stuff.
