Changes to the Model Rocket Safety Code

Post by Tim Rempel » Thu Apr 02, 2009 10:04 am

The CAR board has approved the following:

Motion to change the Model Rocket Safety Code with the following:

7) LAUNCH SITE. I will never launch my model rockets near buildings or power lines, into clouds, or become a hazard to aviation. The area immediately around the launch system will be cleared of any flammable materials. I will always obtain the permission of the launch site owner prior to using the launch site for my model rocket activities.

2) MOTORS. I will only use rocket motors and reloads approved by Natural Resources Canada, Explosives Regulatory Division (NRC/ERD). I will store these motors in a safe and secure manner as described by the manufacturer and NRC/ERD. I will never subject these motors to excessive shock or extremes of temperature. I will not attempt to use, alter, or reload commercial rocket motors, except as instructed by the manufacturer.

"From 'The control of Model Rocketry in Canada'" is to be removed and replaced by a copyright notice by CAR.

If you have any questions, please contact your local CAR representative.
