Can i use two parachutes for my L1 certification flight?

my rocket has a nose cone as big as the rest of the lower part of the rocket, a fiberglass 6:1 4 inch. The lower part is made of the same model nosecone as the rest of the body / boatail.

29mm CTI engine will be used.

since the weight of the top and lower part are very similar, i prefer to have a parachute for each, splitting the rocket in two, after deployment.

i know it will work, but will this be allowed under L1 certification rules?

Thanks.

Asher

Hi Asher,

There aren't any certification rules that exclude multiple chutes for recovery. The primary aim is to get your rocket down safely and in good working order.

By,
Mike
