Nope.. this Pre-Flight policy was broken down for any new/guest/student/non-club flyers all the way down to mid-power (from an incident where we almost had a student "F" flight almost take our heads off after they told us they had simmed it (but didn't have the data on hand)).

Details here:


The pre-flithg data capture form is here:


Just due diligence to increase our attention to mindfully increasing our safety level.

I assume this only applies for high-power flights?

Hey all..

Regarding some new safety policies we have here at NRV Rocketry...

New Guest/Student Flyer Requirements:
As a part of our new launch safety policies for non-club guest flyers as well as uncertified student flyers, we need these flyers to fill out and submit a [ Pre-Flight Data Capture Form here ]( http://server2.nrvr.org/files/TRA_Pre-Flight_Data_Capture_Form.pdf ) and submit this to [ officers(at)nrvr.org<http://nrvr.org> ]( http://mailto:officers@nrvr.org ) before bringing a new rocket configuration with our club.  In short, this new requirement asks you to:
sim your rocket (in [ openRocket ]( http://openrocket.info/ ) or [ RockSim ]( https://www.apogeerockets.com/Rocket_Software/RockSim ))
fill out all the requested fields in the [ PFDC form ]( http://server2.nrvr.org/files/TRA_Pre-Flight_Data_Capture_Form.pdf ), EXCEPT the TAP sections
(which is only required for L3 cert attempts))
submit to [ officers(at)nrvr.org<http://nrvr.org> before ]( http://mailto:officers@nrvr.org ) the day of the launch
(with time for us to review/approve)

Any questions?

VT / NRCC Professors:
Can you all help us get the word on this policy out to all the various student groups?  You can link to this email via our mail list archives here:

Hope to see you at the meeting (on the 25th) and the launch (27th).. Details always on our calendar here:  [ http://nrvr.org/calendar/ ]( http://nrvr.org/calendar/ )
