Recall on Aerotech motors
Posted by Andre Choquette on July 26, 2017

Hi everyone,

please note that Aerotech is having a recall campaign, see details below from Aerotech:

Dear AeroTech Retailer,

We have recently received reports of a very small number of case failures of the 54mm J450DM and L1000W, and the 75mm M1350W.

After investigation, we discovered that the wind angle on the fiberglass cases used in these motors is out of specification. This reduces the strength of the case and could result in an increased incidence of motor failures.
Please pull any of the above mentioned motors from your stock that have been received since January 1, 2016. Also, return the M1350W case assemblies (nozzle, case & liner) you currently have to AeroTech/RCS as soon as possible. Do not sell any of the M1350Ws until the case assemblies have been replaced.

Please contact any customers you may have sold these to and let them know so they can be replaced if not already used.
Let us know the number of these motors that you have in stock and we will send you replacements as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your continued support.

André Choquette
L4, RSO, Motor testing chairman

Bonjour à tous,

veuillez prendre note que la compagnie Aérotech procède au rappel de trois modèles de moteur soient:

- 54mm J450DM and L1000W
- 75mm M1350W

Si vous avez en votre possession un de ces moteurs, vous devez communiquer avec votre détaillant Aérotech.

New CAR/ACF Address
Posted by David Buhler on February 02, 2017

Hi Rocketeers

Just a reminder as we start looking to membership renewals, sending in those worn and wrinkly RI forms and the like. All the documents on CAR web have been updated with a new address so if you are using an old form or one prior to Feb 2017 it will go to Art and then must be sent my way. So, CAR/ACF address is now:

71 Bermuda Close NW
Calgary, AB T3K1G4

New Fax is 403-730-1971

Email me at:

The Secretary Treasurer position officially transitions on Feb 28th, there will be overlap before and after as a multitude of things also must be redirected my way. I want to thank Yves Dufour for helping get the French side of the house updated.

Some of you may remember the old days, well 10-15 years ago anyhow, I took on the moniker of “database slave”, it was and actually still is, except now there is this thing about looking after the financial side of the house too. So, I should look at a new name for the position, suggestions?

Bonjour aux amateurs de fuséologie

Comme nous débutons le renouvellement des adhésions et que de nombreux document plus anciens seront expédiés, nous souhaitons vous rappeler que tous les documents du CAR/ACF ont été modifiés pour inclure notre nouvelle adresse ; si vous utilisez un vieux formulaire ou un formulaire antérieur à févier 2017, il se rendra à Art qui devra me le faire suivre. La nouvelle adresse du CAR/ACF est :

71 Bermuda Close NW
Calgary, AB T3K1G4

Nouveau numéro de fax : 403-730-1971

Adresse de courriel :

La fonction de secrétaire trésorier m’a été transférée officiellement le 28 février mais la transition s’est déroulée avant et après cette date. De nombreuses tâches me sont transférées et je tiens à remercier Yves Dufour pour son aide pour la version française des mises à jour.

Certains d’entre vous se rappelleront qu’il y a 10 ou 15 ans j’ai assumé la responsabilité de la base de données. J’assume toujours cette tâche sauf qu’actuellement s’ajoute la responsabilité des finances. , Je devrais regarder pour un nouveau titre pour ces fonctions ; des suggestions ?
