A few key points to note:

Flights up to K class have a maximum ceiling of 10,000 feet subject to design, wind and visibility conditions, and agreement by the EARS LCO/RSO.
Flights over K class are possible but require approval 14 days prior to the event and have a default maximum ceiling of 5,000ft. Please email us if you wish to fly motors greater than K class.
Dual Deployment is often required for launches to over 3,000ft but does not guarantee a launch.
Final decisions will be those of the Big EARS Safety Committee.

Big EARS Flight Cards will be available on-site.

You will need to contact us in advance if:

  1. you wish to launch rockets to over 5,000 feet
  2. OR
  3. you wish to launch a rocket with a total impulse exceeding 2,560 Newton Seconds (K class).

Safety Addendum
EARS MEMBERS ARE ASKED TO BRING ANY CONCERN ABOUT SAFETY TO THE ATTENTION OF A SAFETY OFFICER OR EVENT OFFICIAL
Safety Officers are required to halt any process where an safety concern has been raised until such a time as other safety officers have been consulted and it deemed safe to continue.

Please would all RSO's make it known on arrival if they would be kind enough to make some time available to assist on the range.
RSO's are asked to only oversee launches comfortably within their experience of RSO'ing similar flights.
RSO's wishing to gain more knowledge in a particular area or certification level may wish to consider asking to shadow an RSO for a particular launch.
Where launches may be to 2000ft or more, RSO's should ensure they are familiar with a map of the site and if in any doubt, should check with the EARS Safety Committee.

Publicity
TV, Film and Radio publicity is prohibited without EARS prior written consent.
