===== Additional information =====
Before you bring a rocket up to the Safety Check-in Table, be sure that
* Filled out and signed the registration form
* Paid your daily range fee
* Received a badge/card that indicates your name and high power
certification level (if applicable)
* Have filled out a flight card. Extra flight cards are available
at the Registration Table.
Any flyer wishing to exceed the established soft limits must obtain
approval from the Check-in Officer PRIOR to preparing the rocket for
flight. When permission to exceed the soft limits is obtained, the flyer
should prepare the rocket for flight and present it to the Check-in
Officer in the normal manner.
Complex rockets, (multi-motor, staged, etc) will be handled in the same
manner as rockets that exceed the soft limits.
Only motors certified by NAR or TRA will be allowed to fly. To find out
if your motor is certified, a list will be posted at the Registration
Table and the Safety Check-in Table.
A high power launch requires a large amount of teamwork. Please consider
volunteering for a range duty shift to help make this launch a success.
We will temporarily suspend launch operations anytime there are not
enough volunteers to fill all range duty positions.
High Power Certification:
NAR Level 1 and 2 certification flights may be attempted each day. If
you do not already have a Certification Team, talk with the RSO and one
will be provided for you. Be sure your team is with you prior to
prepping your rocket.
Please stay clear of the official range head area (where the launch
control personnel work) unless you have business there. No alcoholic
beverages may be consumed on site.
No smoking allowed in prep, check-in, vendor, or flying areas. Please
keep children and pets under your close supervision. If your rocket
lands in one of the launch pad areas, wait until that area is disarmed
before recovering your rocket.
Every participant and spectator is responsible for his or her own trash.
Small trash bags will be available at the registration tent. Please
check your prep area carefully at the end of each day and remove all trash.
Right to Fly:
The range crew have no obligation to allow models to fly. If, in their
best judgment, a model is unsafe then it shall not pass through
check-in. If technical doubts are present then they will consult with
the Range Safety Officer. The Range Safety Officer also has no
obligation to allow models to fly. The Range Safety Officer?s decisions
may not be appealed. The Launch Director may shut down the range
whenever the conditions warrant it. The Launch Directors decision to
close the range cannot be appealed.
Due to other events scheduled at the Aeromodeling Center
NO RADIO CONTROL (R/C) WILL BE PERMITTED.
We will be using Family Radio Service (FRS) channels 4 and 5 (462.6375
and 462.6625 MHz FM) for official range communications. If you have a
set of FRS radios for personal communications, please stay off channels
4 and 5.
