# Central Oregon Launch Site: Brothers, Oregon

Currently, we're using [Oregon Rocketry's ](http://oregonrocketry.org/) Brothers, Oregon launch site]. See [here](http://www.oregonrocketry.com/dir/dir-bro.htm) for directions.

We think the flight line coordinates are [+43.79942 -120.65086](http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=n43.79942+w120.65086&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=59.337006,111.445312&ie=UTF8&t=h&z=17&iwloc=A).

# Older Brothers Launch site (circa 2001)

**We used to use a launch site that's a bit closer to Bend: we no longer use this site**.

This is [Oregon Rocketry's](http://www.oregonrocketry.com/) launch site, located on private land. Although we've never actually launched from this location, we've _almost_ launched from here quite a number of times ;) Oregon Rocketry routinely gets FAA waivers to 20,000ft AGL at this site.
