Countryside Launch Pad (DENIED)
Our request to launch from Countryside Village has been DENIED. The reply to our request reads,
“Unfortunately, given the proximity to CYYZ (Toronto Pearson) and very little track information, this launch would impact both departures and arrivals. We are therefore unable to authorise this activity with the terminal airspace. The launch site is approximately 2.5NM north of the downwind for RWY 05/23, as well as potentially impacting our arrival corridor from the NW. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us”
Given this unfortunately news we are now in search of another launch site which will provide us much less flexibility when it comes to the date we launch becuase we will need to book a bus to transport the group our to the eventual launch location.
Up next, the search for a site. What will give us the best possible launch site and meet a need to maintain air safety in Southern Ontario?
