General Flying Info

8k Waiver

We have FAA clearance to 8,000′ AGL.

If you have something big you feel like flying at NARAM, bring it on out!  Registration is open online through Tuesday (www.naram.org), and you can also just pay cash at the field if that’s your preference.

Fly-It Take-It

We are pleased to announce that NARAM-60 will include the Fly-It/Take-It program. This is an excellent opportunity for the NAR community to “pay it forward” and introduce the joy of model rocketry to the next generation of rocket flier.

R/C Flying

Use of Radio Control: Due to site owner insurance being through the NAR only, the use of radio control (R/C) at NARAM-60 is strictly limited to rocket-boosted R/C aircraft. The flying of any other form of R/C aircraft is prohibited. Being a current member of the AMA (which provides members with its own insurance protection) does not exempt you from this site owner R/C restriction.

High Power Contest Events

We have two exciting High Power Contest Events for NARAM-60:

—”I” Waterloft Altitude with 1000 ml (1 liter) payload per Section 10.2 of the attached High Power Competition Rules

—5300 feet Set Altitude per Section 10.4 of the attached High Power Competition Rules
