Let us handle it Answer the questions below, provide payment of $19.99, and we'll submit your completed application to the FAA for you. You'll need to submit your application at least 45 days before your launch date We recommend you save your form information locally so that no data is lost if your page refreshes or there is an error during submission Stuck? Send us an email at email@example.com for help Your organization's name Name of individual within your organization responsible for complying with FAA and launch site safety requirements Email address where the FAA can reach you House number and street of your mailing address City of your mailing address State of your mailing address Zip code of your mailing address Preferred telephone number Does your organization or the safety official have a previously submitted waiver pending with any other office of the FAA? ---YesNo If yes, provide written details here Has your organization or the safety official ever had a waiver denied? ---YesNo If yes, provide written details here Has your organization or the safety official ever had a previously approved waiver withdrawn by the FAA? ---YesNo If yes, provide written details here Is your rocket propelled by a motor or motors having a combined total impulse of 889,600 Newton-seconds (200,000 pound-seconds) or less? ---YesNo If no, STOP. Your rocket requires an FAA Part 450 launch license and this is not the right form for your operation. If that is the case, contact us for more information and assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org Rocket Total Impulse (In units of Newton-Seconds) Will your rocket's altitude remain below 150 kilometers (93.2 statute miles), in its planned configuration, with your planned fuel load and as measured from the ground level at your launch site? ---YesNo If yes, please continue. If no, STOP. If it is possible for your rocket to reach higher than 150 kilometers, your rocket requires an FAA Part 450 launch license and this is not the right form for your operation. If that is the case, contact us for more information and assistance at email@example.com The FAA defines a Class 1 model rocket in this way: Model rockets weigh 1,500 grams or less, use 125 grams or less of slow-burning propellant, have no substantial metal parts, and are primarily made of paper, wood, or light plastic. Does your rocket fit within these criteria i.e. do you think your rocket is a model rocket? ---YesNo If you select yes and your rocket is a model rocket, you do not need to fill out this form. Model rockets do not require FAA approval. Just be safe and don’t launch it over international boundaries, and have fun! Take pictures and share them with us on Twitter @TheSpaceportCo If your rocket is bigger than a model rocket (as defined above) but has a total impulse of 40,960 Newton-seconds (9,208 pound-seconds) or less, the FAA defines it as a Class 2 High-Power rocket. If your rocket has a total impulse of more than 40,960 Newton-seconds (9,208 pound-seconds), the FAA defines it as a Class 3 Advanced High-Power Rocket. Is your rocket a Class 2 or Class 3 rocket? ---Class 2Class 3 Provide a detailed description of your proposed operation Name and/or address of launch site (optional) Longitude and latitude of launch point Select the FAA Service Center where your launch site resides ---Western Service CenterCentral Service CenterEastern Service Center Elevation above sea level of launch site (in units of feet). FYI: Google Earth can be used to determine the elevation above sea level of any point in the United States What is the radius of a circle (in units of nautical miles) where debris/rocket bodies may fall on the ground? The circle should be centered on your launch point. If you’re not sure of the answer, just estimate the maximum distance your rocket will travel if it left the launch point and traveled horizontally parallel to the ground. Yes, units of nautical miles What is the maximum altitude above ground level (not sea level) you expect to reach during your operation? (in units of feet) How many rockets will you launch? On what date will your launch campaign begin? What is the earliest possible time of day you might launch, in local time Please use 24-hour notation HH:MM:SS, for example 7:30am is 07:30:00 On what date will your launch campaign end? What is the latest possible time of day you might launch, in local time Please use 24-hour notation HH:MM:SS, for example 7:30am is 07:30:00 Describe your rockets fuel type and propellant combination. For example, "Liquid rocket using kerosene as fuel and nitrous oxide as oxidizer" Are you using an airborne launch platform? For example, a rocket launched from a balloon ---YesNo If you are using an airborne launch platform, please provide a description Describe your recovery system. For example parachute, drag systems, streamers, or others. Also include recovery method, such as walking to pick up rocket carrying walkie-talkie, water, etc.) Attach any other additional safety procedures to be followed (optional) (please upload only pdf or doc) The below fields are required only for Class 3 rockets Provide a description of dynamic stability characteristics of your vehicle for the entire flight profile (please upload only pdf or doc) Provide a narrative description of all major rocket systems, including structural, pneumatic, propellant, propulsion, ignition, electrical, avionics, recovery, wind-weighting, flight control, and tracking (please upload only pdf or doc) Provide a description of other support equipment necessary for a safe operation (optional) (please upload only pdf or doc) Provide a description of the planned flight profile and sequence of events (please upload only pdf or doc) Provide a graphical description of all nominal impact areas, including those for any spent motors and other discarded hardware, within three standard deviations of the mean impact point (please upload only pdf or doc) Description of launch commit criteria (please upload only pdf or doc) Countdown procedures (please upload only pdf or doc) Mishap procedures (please upload only pdf or doc) Please sign After submitting, you will automatically be forwarded to a payment page.
