Why not come to watch, build or fly a Model Rocket, High Power Rocket or Boost glider? There’s Something for all ages, with rocket workshops for the beginner to full ground support staff and equipment to support larger launches.
We hold monthly launches on a 1,600 acre farm near the village of Elsworth, which is about 15-20 minutes West of Cambridge.
The launch site is excellent with ample parking and preparation areas.
At ears we welcome flyers of all ages and levels of rocketry, we have a very wide age range of flyers at our launches and they have flown rockets with motors from A to O impulse.
Take the next step in your hobby and join the club!
We had a great turnout on Sunday with the early weather cooperating nicely. Plenty of mid/high power and lots of activity on the model pad! The weather became a bit “patchy” in the afternoon but flying continued with a couple of pauses for aircraft and some low cloud.
The EARS Committee are pleased to announce the following forthcoming launches: Sunday 2 May and Monday 3 May: Please note that for this event, there will be no overnight camping, as this event is not Big EARS.
COVID Secure measures Social distancing must be maintained. Remain in your bubble. Follow the instructions of EARS marshals for parking arrangements. Following current BMFA guidelines for events, no spectators will be allowed – rocket fliers only.
I am pleased to announce that following the AGM, the committee elected the executive officers.
Our own Peter Barrett has provided a great getting started tutorial covering the basics of model rocketry. Have a look and if you’re new to the hobby then have a go!
