High Power Launches

Flyers 18 years and older must be a NAR or Tripoli member to fly.

THOR flies under Tripoli rules and regs for HIGH POWER flights. Please refer to the links at the bottom of this page for details.

All fliers 18 and over must be Tripoli or NAR members for insurance reasons.

Club launch fees are included in your yearly membership or $10 per launch for non-members.


Note: Flights with a total impulse of 80N·s (G motor) or larger will require the use of rail buttons.

THOR does not have 1/4" rods, nor will support personal launch towers with 1/4" rods for rockets with G and above motors.

All levels of rocketeers welcome to all launches within the waiver limits, including low and mid-power.

Waivers:

Dixon-16,999' MSL

Brainard-10,000' MSL

All Launches start at 8 am and will run until rocket motors run out. If you plan to arrive after 12 pm, please notify a club member, as often we have concluded the launch for the day.
