Sean,

Balloons, ultralight aircraft, and all VFR flights
(i.e. private pilots) are currently banned from what
I've heard. I don't think it's a matter of potential
weapons, rather than a matter of keeping as much of
the sky available for emergencies. If they have a
problem with a flight, they don't want to have to
vector them around some private pilot, balloon,
ultralight, or rocket launch.

Mike.

Hi Mike,

I don't know the motivation (although I admit that I speculated that it
might be because of potential use as weapons), but I was surprised at the
blanket ban on ALL rockets. I'm not at all surprised that they are not
issuing wavers for high power launches (which is the situation where they
vector planes around the launch site). I AM surprised, though, that they
are prohibiting even small (say 50 gram) rockets which can only go up a
couple of hundred feet! They might as well ban paper airplanes (which, by
the way, might technically BE banned right now).

By the way, I just saw on the NAR's web site ( http://www.nar.org ) that
they have not heard that model rockets (less than 1 pound) are banned, just
those requiring waivers. Still, the president of my local group says that
the FAA rep who he talked to said that even models are currently banned.
Apparently the FAA is so busy with other (admittedly more important) things
that they aren't even sure what they currently are allowing. We'll see how
this develops over the next few days.

Thanks for the comments.

Sean
