Peter Barrett
Rocket Workshop ManagerL2 Range Safety Officer

Most EARS members will know Peter from seeing him at EARS launches taking photos and high speed videos. He has been interested in anything that flies for his whole life. In 1994 he saw his first Estes Rocket launch and was hooked, buying his first Estes Alpha 3 starter set the next week.

Having helped found the HART Rocket club Peter has gone on to do all kinds of rocketry on TV from Technogames to the Royal Society Christmas Lectures. From there he has diversified into doing rocket workshops and has now recorded nearly 5,000 rocket flights and taught over 4,000 children how to build and fly rockets.

Peter still mainly flies model to mid power rockets and is a Level 2 Range Safety Officer

Peter is very honoured to be the EARS "Workshop Leader" and looks forward to running the workshops at the EARS events.
