High Altitude Project Submission Form

50,000 feet (or higher) 

link to rules


Submission must be 30 days in advance of launch

Notes:

  • The individual responsible for the flight (person signing flight card) is required to submit this form
  • Submission must be made no later than 30 days before the start date of the Aeropac launch you plan to attend for your flight.
  • Submission of this form does not constitute approval.
  • You may be contacted for additional information.
  • You will be contacted once approval is granted.
  • If you are not contacted within 7 days prior to the flight, please contact Aeropac’s Webmaster.
  • If the maximum altitude of your flight is expected to reach or exceed 100,000 feet, you must also obtain approval from the Tripoli Class 3 Committee”
  • Regardless of expected altitude, any rocket with a motor or a combination of motors that exceed 40, 960 Ns cannot be flown via the Aeropac FAA Waiver.  All such rockets are Class 3 rockets and must be submitted to the Tripoli Class 3 committee for review and approval.  The flier must obtain their own FAA Waiver.  If a flier wishes to coordinate such a flight during an Aeropac launch, they should coordinate with the Prefect.

Describe each EX Motor: diameter, designation (J200, etc.), type and number of grains, propellant description, anticipated pressure, etc. Motors of less than 10240 N-s may be described very briefly. For larger motors, a printout from a motor modeling program is expected. Additional information (casing wall thickness, specific propellant formulation, etc.) is also expected for such motors.

Launch Support Requirements

Rail/Rod; length, other launch system details
Will you need a ladder or any other non-standard equipment to be provided?
Motor ignition description and sequence (if applicable)

Simulation Data:

Results from computer simulations must be included from each program or simulation actually used.  

Simulations are required using commercial or publicly available, off-the-shelf software, or equivalent.


Upload Simulation Data (please .ZIP if it is multiple files)
