Default Forward to Spaceport America!

From Benson I headed to Las Cruses NM first. I need some consulting on Spaceport operations. Run low on oxygen too.


Passed a playa. Great landing site. They say Burning Man has similar surface .










A bit north from here there is a great place for rent (on VAF front page today)











Shortly after I landed at Las Cruses, NM and was met by Don and Russ my space advisors. Don is building RV-9A and is a CFI, Russ is already flying his 9.






Don briefed me on status of restricted areas and their altitudes. Then local fbo filled my oxygen bottle for $45 to half the capacity. Their equipment couldn't handle pressure over 1K psi better then nothing. But 45? Kind of steep. I took off and tuned to ABQ approach.
