Why not come to watch, build or fly a Model Rocket, High Power Rocket or Boost glider?
Something for all ages, with rocket workshops for the beginner to full ground support staff and equipment to support the larger launches.
EARS manage a number of launches for media events. Here are a few of our favourites...
We currently hold flying days on the first Sunday of the month from January to December, they generally start at around 10am and carry on until it gets either too dark, or too cold. Everyone is welcome to come along and fly with us, it doesn't matter what type of rocket you fly as we've had all sorts of different shapes and sizes with motors from ¼A to M impulse flown from the site.
Spectators are always welcome but please do take note of the information in our Disclaimer (pdf 83kb) and "Do's and Don'ts" (pdf 29kb). Also we do appreciate you letting us know if you are coming via our contact page.
As our launches are on a farm on fairly exposed ground please remember to bring suitable clothing and footwear. Warm coats and waterproof boots are a good idea.
Please note that our launch event calendar will be updated after the EARS AGM.
IMPORTANT: SITE ACCESS! The entrance we use has had to change at the landowner's request. Please check out the Launch Site pages for further details
There will be the usual loo facilities available on site.
