All rockets will undergo a safety check before being allowed to fly at Great Meadows.:
NOVAAR Safety Check-in Officer Guidelines
NAR Safety Code
NAR High Power Safety Code

All high power flyers at a NOVAAR event must show proof of membership in
either the National Association of Rocketry  ( NAR) or the Tripoli Rocketry
Association. Your membership card must show your high power certification
level. Those prerequisites exist at every NAR or Tripoli launch throughout
the country.  If you are a member in good standing and certified, you may
fly at a NOVAAR event.  We charge a launch fee of $1 per flight for
non-members.  We limit motor size to  J or less and our standard FAA waiver
is 4,500 feet AGL  It is a club policy that packing the parachute be
witnessed by another individual similarly certified.
.
If you are not a member of either national organization, you must join one
or the other before competing the certification process.  As  NOVAAR is a
section of the NAR and we follow NAR guidelines in certifying individual
flyers.  Information on certification can be found at
http://www.nar.org/high-power-rocketry-info/.   If you need assistance, you
can contact the NOVAAR high power coordinator, Mitch Guess.

Non-high power flyers do not need to be members of the NAR or Triploi but must pay the $1.00
launch fee if they are not members of NOVAAR.
