In 2019, a group of friends dreamt of sending a rocket to space, so we founded a club and called ourselves AeroBing. We quickly grew beyond our charter members. We have since defined our mission as spreading aerospace education by sending a rocket beyond the boundary of space. We continue to operate as a student-run group supported by the university and affiliates, bringing in anyone sharing our passion.
Founded in 2019, the team focused on fundraising, research, and design. By mid 2020, despite the challenges of the pandemic, the team grew and began hands-on testing. In 2021 generous contributions and grants, from private individuals, NASA, SUNY Binghamton, and crowdfunding, enabled us to being launching scale spaceshot rockets. Now in 2022, the team has built multiple rockets and launched them in the Mojave Desert. We continue to learn and refine our rockets with space in our sights.
AeroBing is committed to practicing rocketry safely and within the boundaries of the law. We work closely with our legal advisors, launch sites, and technical personnel to ensure safe practices in our organization and its operations. High power rocketry to space is regulated by the FAA and is legal for civilians. Our radio communications systems conform to FCC guidelines, operating on authorized bands. Our propellant (APCP) is explicitly exempted from the ATF's list of explosives.
New York State Pride
The Ambition III be the first New York amateur built rocket to reach space. This is a major achievement for SUNY and the State of New York. We are excited to continue Binghamton's rich history in the aerospace industry and develop a feasible means by which other students can obtain hands-on experience with rocketry and aerospace.
