ADVANCED NOTICE REQUIRED FOR FLIGHTS to or above 5000 feet / 1500m

EARS is committed to using United Kingdom Airspace responsibly. We work closely with the Civil Aviation Authority, National Air Traffic Services and the regional Air Traffic Control to ensure EARS rocket launches do not endanger other air users.

Similarly, EARS is committed to ensure that rockets do not overfly the limits of our agreed launch site and recovery area.

When planning your flight, ensure you do an accurate simulation, using a recognised simulation application (Open Rocket, Roc Sim or Thrustcurve.org) Ensure your simulation has accurate data about the rocket. If your proposed flight is likely to reach 5000’ (1500m), you must contact the EARS Committee (committee@ears.org.uk) a minimum of four weeks prior to the proposed launch date to discuss prior arrangements.

All flyers must be familiar with our policies on safe flying

  • The EARS rocket range is accessed via a single lane concrete surfaced track located close to New Farm, that leads off from Rogues Lane across open farmland. As you drive onto the track you will notice a copse of fir trees some distance ahead. Drive carefully along the track, taking particular care on the uneven surface, and avoiding the ditches on either side. The track is also used by walkers and cyclists, so drive with caution. At the first turning on the track, turn left, following the line of the trimmed garden hedge, following the turning right, then left again. You will now be approaching the EARS range down a slight incline. Be aware that rocket launches may already be in progress when you arrive. As you slowly approach the range, you will be directed by club officials regarding parking. You are on private farmland - please respect this. There is no right of way except where indicated.
