Regulations around building our own motors in WA?

Postby no1sonofthunder » Sat Mar 21, 2020 7:55 pm

I was just wondering if there were any regulations around building my own rocket motors here in WA. I just recently started getting into rockets and was wondering if it is within the state rules and regulations for me to build my own and launch it at a club meet somewhere...
Thanks

The short answer is, yes, there are regulations regarding this, and no, you won’t be able to launch them at a club launch.

Typically, the building of home made rocket motors is not encouraged and the use of them is not permitted at sanctioned launches. You should contact the local rocketry group in your area. In W.A. the group to contact is WARS.
