We have a new launch site for balloon launches in Carbon, AB outside of Class C airspace. I own this cabin and 1 acre lot. If you would like to use it for a launch please contact me nj atsymbol obsd.com. I have power, outhouse and a fire pit for after launch festivities. There is a nice deck for preping for launch.
