|Welcome to KLOUDBusters Country!!!
Located in the heart of the South Central Kansas prairie,
KLOUDBusters epitomizes the best of High Power Rocketry in the United
States. With a consistent membership base of over 100 members,
KLOUDBusters has maintained the same launch site since 1991. Flying monthly
near the town of Argonia, Kansas, with a one-hour drive time
southwest of Wichita, KLOUDBusters hosts 3 major launches each year
and monthly fun flies. Additionally, at the same site KLOUDBusters
has hosted the annual Tripoli Rocketry Association national launch LDRS
six times: 1993, 1994, 1999, 2003, 2008 ... and most recently in 2011. At that
site, KLOUDBusters also hosted the inaugural Discovery
Channel "Rocket Challenge" in July 2003 and the History Channel "Large Dangerous Rocket Ships" program in 2011.

What separates KLOUDBusters from other clubs across the nation is
that exceptional flying field - known to the locals as The Rocket Pasture. Launch operations
are based from that 40 acre all-weather field, recovery is provided in adjacent farmland stretching for miles and literally as far as the eye can see and owned by the friendly farmers whose goodwill we
depend upon and foster. The available waiver for all KLOUDBusters launches is 50,000' AGL. All flights over 23,000' require prior approval from the KLOUDBusters Prefect - application here. Contact the KloudBusters prefect for further details.

With the help of our diverse and talented membership, KLOUDBusters
has built an enviable infrastructure that remains on most clubs' wish
lists. Beginning with the finest state-of-the-art launch control
electronics and extending to our heavy-duty high-power launch pads;
the launch setup has the capability to handle 64 launch pads
simultaneously. Launch operations also includes a new state-of-the-
art public address system, 20x40 circus style tent for spectator
comfort and FM broadcasts of the Launch Control Officer's audio.
