High Power Rocketry (HPR) is a thrilling next step in the model rocketry experience that permits a rocket builder the opportunity to use more powerful (and diverse) motors (H – O class),  NOTE: Some F & G motors require a HPR certification for use.

Because of the nature of HPR motors and the associated regulatory requirements, individuals must first complete a certification process for each HPR level before they are permitted to purchase (or use) HPR motors (solid & hybrid). In the U.S., two organizations oversee this process – the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) and the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA).  Presently BARC offers Level 1 & 2 NAR High Power Rocketry (HPR) certifications.

Certification prerequisites are joining the NAR, and being age 18 (14 for the  Junior level).  HPR certification progresses through 3 levels:

NOTE!!  Individuals attempting HPR certification must D/L and bring their own application form and procedure.  Copies are NOT provided at the launch site.  The L2 exam is available only upon prior request.

Please contact a BARC Official if you are interested in learning more.
