Encouraging Amateur Rocketry to Educate the Public


FAR site allows the instructors, mentors, students, and pyrotechnic operators to interact.  The students are able to static test and launch their engineering projects.  The student gets to experience hardware checkout, test setup, propellant loading, perform test procedures, use personal safety protective equipment, observe the test or launch, tracking, and participate in rocket recovery.   Universities can bring advanced technologies to the site and test their viability.  Technologies previously tested and flown include: composite liquid oxygen tanks, aerospike rocket engines, and rapid response.
