 2014 AIAA Region I Young Professionals Rocketry Competition

 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.

Important Dates:

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
