|Welcome to NEFAR!
Who are we? NEFAR is a group of dedicated rocketeers who have organized to make good launch opportunities available to ourselves and other responsible flyers. NEFAR is is affiliated with the National Association of Rocketry (Section #563) and Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA Prefect #35).
Who can attend? All interested rocketeers, their families, and any other rocketry-friendly responsible persons are welcomed. You don't have to be a member to attend a NEFAR launch or fly your rockets there. (You DO need appropriate NAR or TRA certification to fly high-power rockets. Flying low-power and mid-power rockets does not require certification.)
What do we do? We hold low, mid, and high power rocket launches (A - M impulse motors) at the Clegg sod farm near Bunnell, FL. The field is FAA waivered for high power rockets flying up to 2,000', with call in for "windows" to higher altitudes up to 10,000 feet.
We collaborate with a number of schools, colleges, and civic groups to facilitate and promote the use of rocketry for educational, recreational, and research purposes.
When? Our launches are on the second Saturday of each month, with two-day launches (Saturday and Sunday) in April and November. Launches usually start about 10:00am and close at 3:00pm in the winter, 5:00pm in the summer.
Where? At the Clegg Sod Farm near Bunnell, FL. See the Launch Site page for details.
Why? Because it's fun! Exciting! It is also highly educational, recreational, and a great way to meet smart people.
How do I get started? Come to a launch! Or if you prefer, contact the webmaster or one of the NEFAR officers to discuss your rocketry interests, and how NEFAR might facilitate your rocketry plans.
We adhere to strict rules of safety and legality, and require that our guest flyers do likewise. Following the rules allows us to launch large and exciting rockets to high altitudes.
I'm Coming! What should I bring?
May Launch Successful
With many flights pending, the NEFAR officers wisely set up three separate launching areas - low power, hight power, and hybrids. This arrangement allowed the launching of many more rockets than usual, and good thing. 131 flight cards turned in... this was one of our busiest launch days ever. It was a beautiful launch day, light clouds, and almost no wind for most of the day. Two collections of photos are out there, and a few videos. More coming soon!

Please do not use 418mHz at NEFAR launches
If you are planning to use telemmetry at a NEFAR launch, try to avoid using the radio frequency 418 megaHertz as it is the same frequency used by our new wirless launch control system. Problems could ensue.
