Model rocketry and Aerospace engineering - Safety First!

Path: Aviation Rockets


By following the National Association of Rocketry, Model Rocket Safety Code, you can experiment with the aerodynamics of rockets with almost complete safety.

Model rockets utilize small, commercially-manufactured rocket engines to enable speeds of up to several hundred miles per hour. Some can reach altitudes as high as several thousand feet.

Model Rocketry can lead to Aerospace engineering

Would you like to be a rocket scientists? For your science fair project, you can be a rocket scientist. Model rockets are extremely fun to build and lunch and can make a very exciting science fair project. The term "rocket scientist" is sometimes used to describe a person of great intelligence. This is because "rocket science" is seen as a skill that requires great mental ability, especially technical and mathematical ability.

Aerospace engineering deals with the design, construction, and science behind the forces and physical properties of aircraft, rockets, flying craft, and spacecraft. The field also covers their aerodynamic characteristics and behaviors, airfoil, control surfaces, lift, drag, and other properties. Aerospace engineering may be studied at the advanced diploma, bachelor's, master's, and Ph.D. levels in aerospace engineering departments at many universities.

Georgia Wing Model Rocketry Program

Georgia Wing Model Rocketry Program - this is a CAP, Civil Air Patrol, Model Rocketry program that can be completed during a weekend-long event. I first became interested in model rockets while in the CAP.

Model Rockets, Motors and Igniterse

Estes 1469 Tandem-X Launch Set

Two is better than one. You’ll get X-tra value with the Estes Tandem-X Model Rocket Launch Set. This exceptional rocket set features a pair of extreme, high performance rockets with a launch system for launching them. Whether you’re a new rocketeer or a seasoned veteran, launch in tandem for an exciting model rocket experience. The E2X (Easy to Assemble) Amazon is as imposing as the name sounds. This giant towers almost 3 ' (91 cm) high and is quick and easy to build. A tiger-striped body tube, precolored plastic nose cone and fins and self-stick decals make building this rocket easy to do in about an hour. When flown on our standard engines, this huge rocket can reach heights over 650 ' (198 m) with recovery on a colorful 18 " (46 cm) preassembled parachute. The Crossfire ISX is a Skill Level 1 kit that can easily be built in about a day. This rocket features a totally streamlined shape with aerodynamic fins and nose cone. It stands 15.6 " (39.6 cm) tall. When launched with powerful Estes standard engines, this bullet can reach cloud busting heights up to 1,200 ' (366 m). A preassembled 12 " (30 cm) parachute returns the Crossfire back to earth to launch again and again. Glue, modeling tools and Estes engines required - sold separately. The Electron Beam Launch Controller uses 4 AA 1.5V batteries - sold separately. Recommended for ages 10 and up with adult supervision for those under 12.



Estes 2162 Big Daddy Flying Model Rocket Kit

This Big Daddy is a real head-turner at the launch field. It’s been redesigned to handle our super powerful E engines so it will fly over twice as high as it used to. Using Estes E engines, this highly streamlined rocket can reach a cloud topping 900 ' (274 m). If you prefer to keep it suborbital, it will also fly on extremely well on C11 engines or D engines. Either way, this extreme rocket is returned safely on a huge 24 " (61 cm) preassembled parachute. Standing just under 20 " (51 cm) tall and having a Bid Daddy waist size of 3 " (76.22 mm), the Estes rocket engineers have given the Big Daddy a contemporary new look. The revised Skill Level 2 kit features laser cut balsa fins, an oversized slotted body tube for precision fin alignment and one of the biggest blow molded nose cones in the hobby. This high powered bullet is built to handle all the power you can stuff into the motor tube. Experience in model building and finishing is necessary to build this big guy, but the end result is worth the effort. Building tools, finishing supplies, Estes launch supplies including a 3/16 " (5 mm) Maxi Launch Rod required — sold separately. E engine launches require the use of an Estes Porta-Pad E Launch Pad and E Launch Controller – sold separately. Recommended for ages 18 and up with adult supervision for those under 18.
