Tripoli Pittsburgh announces Dragon's Fire 71, to be held Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2 at the "Dragon's Skull" launch site, south of Pittsburgh, PA.

Dragon's Fire 71 will feature a Research Launch on Saturday, June 1 from 10:00am until 8:00pm, to be followed by a Night Launch, starting at sunset. The night launch will also be under research rules, and some unique and colorful flights are expected. Following the launch will be a campfire and on-site camping is allowed. Sunday will be a Commercial launch with all fliers welcome to fly up to their certification level.

Dragon's Fire launches from a 300 acre former farm field just south of Republic, PA with a 14,000' waiver. As noted camping is allowed on the field, motels are available about 10 miles away in Uniontown, PA

Hope to have you join us at one of the few summer available high power launch sites in the area.
