UKRA L2 RSO
I have built and flown models for many years, like most rocket flyers my introduction to rocketry was by the purchase of an almost ready to fly kit from Estes flying B’s, (I cannot remember its name but it has been long lost and offered as a sacrifice to the Rocket Gods) I then moved to C’s, D’s and Clusters then to Launch Pad kits and 24mm R&R. I love Military Rockets and fin’s (some boy’s like fin’s some don’t) from then on, apart from a few HPR kits I have built all my own rockets from scratch. I am a Level 2 RSO and once I finally make up my mind on the design I plan to do my Level 3 flight.
My philosophy is to fly rockets, lots of rockets safely and to impart knowledge to those younger flyers who will be the future of our sport.
I have to 2 goals within Rocketry firstly to develop and promote UK rocketry and the second is to hold the UK Open Altitude Record.
Apart from living and breathing rockets when I get the time you can find me in Mid Wales with the family either relaxing with a Vodka, fly fishing for Bass & trout, Mountain walking or rock climbing/dangling from a rope with friends. But best of all is standing in a field with friends looking into blue skies waiting to see deployment after pressing the button.
