Children Flying Model Rockets Launch For Free!
Children under the age of 18 who are only flying Model Rockets do not need to register, but they must be supervised by a registered flier and must be accompanied by a registered flier at all times. If the child’s accompanying adult is not a registered flier, the adult may coordinate with a registered flier or TCC staff member to fly Model Rockets with the child.
Note: Model Rockets are rockets that are less that 3.3 pounds in weight and are being flown on motors with less than 80 Newtons average thrust, less than 160 Newton-seconds of impulse (G motor or smaller), and less than 125 grams of propellant. These are rockets similar to Estes model rockets and other types of rockets that are not defined as High-Power Rockets. If you have a question about whether your rocket is a Model Rocket or not, ask a staff member.
Spectators Watch For Free!
Spectators who are not flying rockets, assisting at the pads, or accessing the range may attend the launch for free and are not required to pay to register.
