Fields

We have access to two fantastic launch sites near Austin, Texas.

These sites are not available for rocket activities at any time other than scheduled AARG launches.

Check the AARG launch list or home page for information on which site will be used for a specific launch. Generally, we fly from the Hutto from October to February and other months at the Bertram field, but be sure to check for updates. Our flying location depends on when the the crops are planted and harvested at the Hutto field.
