101.465     Weather and day limitations — rockets other than model rockets
     (1)     A person may launch a rocket that is not a model rocket:
     (a)     in or into cloud; or
     (b)     at night; or
     (c)     in conditions other than VMC;

This is the worst regulation writing I've ever seen, it is terribly misleading for the law. This, to me, is saying you can launch in cloud etc.

Tanya and I have been editing the Blue Book and in our copy if you look at Question 25 of the safety section you can see clearly stated as option D. the one circumstance in which launching into a cloud is not a problem. Unfortunately I can't write it here, you'll have to ask me in person.  Wink

It makes no sense until the next line is read;

only as permitted by another provision of this Part, or in accordance with an air traffic control clearance.

Out of curiosity, would a liquid fueled homemade rocket engine come under experimental rocketry (I would assume so)?
By liquid I mean LOX and Kerosene. As in the website >>> http://www.watzlavick.com/robert/rocket/index.html

"(G)Making, launching, operating, flying, testing, activating, discharging, or other experimentation
with model rocket motors, high power motors, motor reloading kits, or motor components that
have not been certified by a reputable certifying body.
"

Would that apply to a liquid fueled rocket?

Not that having and launching a liquid fueled rocket would be anywhere near as cheap, easy and legal as launching commercially made solids and hybrids.

Can any reader provide an up-to-date overview of the rocketry situation in Tasmania. It appears that there are a number of challenges including: no specific rocketry legislation, no club registered, difficulty freighting even small rocket motors to Tasmania, etc.

If you have any useful information or can suggest a local contact I would be most appreciative!

no club registered

This is in fact incorrect. Hi Leng and welcome to the forum. The Australian Rocketry Association is registered in every state and territory of Australia via their Australian Registrable body status. Many are simply unaware of this.

It is a legal requirement that if an association wishes to do business outside their original state of registration they must have this status. What does this mean for you?  dizundecided

It means if you wish to start an ARA section you don't need to register an Inc association. We (the ARA) have made it easy for everyone like yourself to start clubs and will help within our resources to do this.  divsmiley

It will take someone who is prepared to do some ground work to make this happen. That is the real challenge in Tasmania.  72
