Welcome to Tripoli-Colorado

At Tripoli-Colorado, High Power Rocketry begins at 8,800 feet! We are Prefecture #11 of the Tripoli Rocketry Association, an organization dedicated to designing, building and flying high-power rockets. Come fly with us at our launch site near Hartsel, Colorado.

Our waiver (with launch windows) allows flights up to 14,200 ft AGL.


Next Event

Please join us for our first launch of the season, which will be on Sunday April 28th. 
I will be on site at 7 am and we can launch as soon as we are set up and ready.
Waiver opens at 8 am to 7,000 ft. AGL and windows can be called in to 14,200 ft AGL. Please let me know if you need a window when you arrive so we can coordinate windows with the FAA. 
As always there is no camping on site, no driving off of roads, and close the gate behind you. 
John Jamieson
Prefect Tripoli Colorado
