Launch Sites

Clarendon, Quebec –  GPS Coordinates 45.620943294762526, -76.51775396303526

Our current launch site is in Clarendon, Quebec – just west of Shawville in the Pontiac Region. The site is large enough for model and mid-power flights. A Tripoli Rocketry Association insurance certificate has been issued for us to launch at this site, so all launch participants over the age of 18 must show proof of current TRA membership to launch at this site.

The site is private property. We have a “leave it cleaner than when we got there” policy with respect to our launch sites. Bring a bag for garbage with you, and pick up any trash you see, whether it’s yours or not.

How to get there

We suggest crossing the Ottawa River via the Quyon Ferry, which is a pleasant ride for only $10 a carload each way. Otherwise, find your way to Quebec Route 148 West, and when you get to Quyon, pick up the below route at step 2 below.

  1. Head north on Chemin du Ferry (500 metres)
  2. Turn left onto Rue de Clarendon (500 metres)
