Greetings AIAA Region 1 Members and Young Professionals!
Have you ever dreamed of launching your own rocket to great heights? Or are you an experienced rocket-launching hobbyist, burning for another challenge? From first-timers to amateur rocketry veterans, AIAA Region I Young Professionals are encouraged to launch at the AIAA YP Rocket Competition in Culpeper, VA on April 5, 2014.
AIAA Region I YPs and their colleagues are invited to participate in the amateur rocketry competition to learn new skills, enhance old skills, and meet their fellow AIAA members. Teams of 2-10 members are encouraged to participate in this competition. A YP-designed, egg-lofting rocket will fly to a minimum altitude of 1,000 ft, attempting to maximize acceleration while minimizing total launch time, all while safely returning the egg, rocket, and instrumentation. A team captain must be an AIAA YP member.
Team registration opens November 15, 2013
Team registration is due by January 31, 2014
Design safety review is due by February 28, 2014
Competition date is April 5, 2014
