incorporating the International Rocket Weekend
Organised by: STAAR Research

As a UK Rocketry Association (UKRA) registered event, all rocket flying activities will be governed by the UKRA Safety Code. ALL rockets to be flown during the 1999 IRW MUST be passed by a UKRA Qualified Safety Officer before launching, and their decisions are final. UKRA Safety Officers and other experienced rocketeers at the event will happily and freely give advice and assistance to anyone in doubt or in need of help to make any rockets Safety Code compliant. The ethos of the event and the function of the Safety Code is to enable all to fly safely, with learning and enjoyment as the outcomes, and not to be unduly restrictive. The Safety Code and arrangements are also necessary for the maintainence of flight insurance cover (explained on the flight insurance page), and also to safegaurd any members of the public who may happen to be near the Main and Secondary Flying Fields at Kelburn. All launch activities will be under the supervision of an appointed Launch Control Officer.
