Looks like I'll be at home for the next semester of school. I'm hoping to take advantage of that and build some rockets. Specifically, I would like to get my HPR L2 and possibly L3 certs. I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction as far as local mentors, launch areas, etc. for this project.
Several of us here could help you with your L2. It's possible to fly an L2 certification flight at the CMASS Amesbury site, but it would need to be a low-and-slow kind of flight. The same is true for the clubs in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
If you want to fly something more extreme, you may want to look into the Lake Winnipesaukee club. They fly when the lake freezes, and they applied for a 30k' waiver this winter. You can find them on Facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/262486714668833
For your L3, you will need to find a mentor from either the NAR or TRA lists. I don't think any of them are CMASS members. For what it's worth, I need to start the search for a L3 mentor too.
I'm applying to become an L3CC. There are at least four club members wanting to work on L3. Robert DeHate has moved west. The other other L3CC listed is Stephen Boy, and he hasn't logged on the website in a couple of years, so I don't know if he is active any more. But you do need two L3CC.
