    • You can launch model rockets anywhere that you have permission and there is a large enough open area. Some areas have laws or restrictions governing the launching of model rockets so you need to take those into consideration. And always follow the Model Rocket Safety Code.

      We highly recommend launching your rockets with a local club. Not only has the club obtained permission to use a launch site, clubs usually provide launch equipment. They also give you the opportunity to meet with other rocketry enthusiasts and see many more rockets being launched.
