If we're talking low altitude flights there's a few amateur ranges in SE QLD, but that's about it.
Gilmour's only flown a rocket once to my knowledge. This flight.
Was that a hybrid? I'm kinda wondering if there's any relationship here to the hybrid guy I knew years ago in QRS. He was not very popular... was seen as doing some risky stuff with nitrous.
I don't think the hybrid guy you're referring to has much of a relationship with Gilmour. We could be thinking of two different people but there haven't been too many guys in QRS historically that were into hybrids and not very popular.
That took place at the QRS launch site in Westmar, QLD. The site has a a waiver which covers flights up to 120k' AMSL. If Gilmour is going to launch later in the year/early next year I suspect Westmar will be the site if they can get permission.
