The Club's waiver at Newland covers flights up to 4,000' but the flight area allows for ~5,600'. We are working to reach that potential. Our waiver at the Fairground covers flights up to 3,400’.

Visitors planning to fly L motors or larger need to contact a club officer at least 3 days prior to the launch.


LAUNCH AND RECOVERY PROCEDURES:
Upon arrival, sign in on the fliers sheet at the RSO table. Prep your rockets. We generally have a variety of launch pads including, 1/8", 3/16", and 1/4" rods, short (3') and long (6') micro-rails, short (3') and long (8') 1010 rails, and a 12'-long 1515 rail. Fill out one Flight Card for each flight. We keep flight cards on hand, but you can save time by printing and filling out yours ahead of time. Present the flight card and your rocket to the RSO for inspection. Load your rocket on the pad and hook up the igniter clips. Note the launch pad used on the card and give it to the LCO.

If your rocket lands outside of the immediate launch area or lands in a nearby tree, you must contact a SEVRA Board Member or the RSO before attempting recovery. SEVRA has knowledge of the surrounding properties and has the equipment to enable the safe recovery of your rocket.
