“Drone” Policy has Changed to Prohibit Radio Controlled Aircraft at RC Launches

Due to guidance from our national governing organizations, as of October 2019, the ROC board has decided to  prohibit the use of all drones, UAVs, RC aircraft and any other flying devices that are not rocket powered boost gliders, regardless of location or time at our events.

Radio controlled rocket gliders are permitted, when following the NAR Radio Controlled Rocket Glider Safety Code.

We have had a number of issues with the conduct of people flying these devices, including an injury earlier this year that resulted from someone not following the previous policy.
