Beginning this calendar year NAR has made changes in the Junior HPR Level 1 program. Effective now, there is a written test that must be passed before the Junior Level 1 certification flight. ROC will have the tests and new Junior Level 1 forms at registration.
There has been no change in the certification process for adult NAR members.
For complete information, including practice tests, please refer to the NAR site. Note that for Junior Level 1 the applicant must be a current NAR member at least 14 years old at the time of the test.
After an inspection of the lakebed, we are confident that the February 8 launch is a go.
The lakebed is dry and there is no rain currently forecast between now and the launch.
So everyone should have rockets ready and assemble at the lakebed.
We expect to begin launching at 08:00 on Saturday, February 8.
Due to recent precipitation, and some snow still present, the lakebed is not expected to be safe to drive on by the December launch.
The board has decided to cancel the December launch, and we will be monitoring conditions for the January launch.
IF you choose, Amazon will donate a percentage of your qualified purchases to ROC, to further our outreach work. It does not cost you extra.
To fly high power you need to be a current member of NAR or Tripoli. The expected evidence of certification and current membership is a current membership card for either NAR or Tripoli.
If your membership in NAR or Tripoli lapses, then your certification and insurance also lapse. For Tripoli members if your membership has been expired for more than a year you must completely re-certify after renewing your membership.
Your ROC membership card is your evidence that you do not need to pay daily launch fees. While membership may be looked up online, this delays the registration process. Please bring your current membership card to all ROC events.
