Any Legal Rocketry Sites In SoCal?


Besides Lucerne Dry Lake & Santa Fe Dam Rec Area (Irwindale). Someone mentioned Moreno Valley to me, but not sure exactly where. Willing to join the NAR, but not a clique.

IANAL, but my understanding is that individuals can fly low power on BLM land legally. Anything high power is going to involve interaction with the FAA, and for that it's easiest to fly with a club.

A TRILLION Thanks, ccdengr!!!! Low Power= “B” or “C” size motors (Estes)? THANKS for the link. My sister-in-law & her husband live up there in the high desert.

Low power as far as the FAA is concerned is anything that weighs < 1500 grams with less than 125 grams of propellant, which covers all of the Estes product line up through G motors.

Thanks, ccdenger. Looks like my Estes “A” & “B” motor’s are legal then. The elderly man running SoCal Rocketry said we have to pay our admission fee @Santa Fe Dam Rec Area w/ $2 dollar bills or gold dollar coins, just to get special recognition.

I think you'd find that the group at Lucerne is more congenial.
