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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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
