Albuquerque Soaring Club

Weather Balloon Launch!

It's exciting, it's fun and it is balloon season! The National Weather Service has agreed to host us starting at 430PM on Thursday October 10th for a tour. This tour will feature a balloon launch and an overview of how we get the foundation for our soaring weather forecasts. They will also cover new satellite feeds and tools for us glider pilots. You may also hear some people and see some phrases that get repeated on METARs, TAFs and your TV channels. This was a lot of fun last year. The event is open to you and your guests! Please join us for the launch and tour at 2341 Clark Carr Loop SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106.
