ImageThe National Association of Rocketry has created a new High Power Rocketry Sporting Code. This addition to the already existing Model Rocket sporting code is designed to provide the high power flier the means to participate in friendly high power competition against fellow high power flyers.  

With the inception of this program, the National Association of Rocketry now provides each of these fliers a means to competitively display his or her skills in design, craftsmanship, safety and flight of high powered sport model rockets.

Competitors must be NAR members that hold a current membership; as this is a NAR specific program, members of other organizations that are not also NAR members cannot compete at this time, however between-organization competitions with separate classes for members of other organizations are permitted. Also, since this is a high power competition, members are required to provide proof of HPR certification or participation. Members may fly contest models in any impulse class covered by their current HPR level, as long as the impulse class can be supported by the launch site. Members not holding a valid HPR certification or participation level cannot compete in HPR contests.

The NAR Contest and Records Committee has been tasked with the duty of recording record-setting flights for appropriate HPR events, as they have been doing so successfully for many years for model rocketry contests. The events for which records will be maintained are Altitude and Multiple Eggloft. The record program is not yet in place, and its commencement will be announced by the NAR Contest and Records Committee. The HPR contest events listed in this document do not accumulate contest points at this time, so their results will be used by the Contest and Records Committee strictly for identifying and recognizing the leaders in each of the various HPR contest events at a single launch.
