Peter Barrett

Youth Rocket Leader

I’ve been flying rockets for over 26 years and radio controlled models for over 30 years. My rockets have come in various sizes, from just a few inches high to over 8 feet, using motors from A to J in power.

I am currently a Level 2 R.S.O. and enjoying my role as the Youth Group Leader and photographer of the E.A.R.S. club. My Level 3 rocket “Garfield Express” is finally finished, but it does not currently have a launch E.T.A.

Through my own club “H.A.R.T.” and at E.A.R.S., I have taught over 7,200 children in my rocket workshops, been on National T.V. several times and done a number of public rocket displays in front of over 10,000 people.

You will now find me mainly at the flight line either taking photos or flying my various drones to get interesting launch footage or searching for lost rockets, and occasionally flying my radio controlled rocket boost gliders.

My goals for 2021 is to help more people get into this great hobby of rocketry and promote the E.A.R.S. Model Achievement Scheme.
