Hobby Constraints

I searched the local city and county (online) records and didn't find any specific local ordinance about rockets. The FAA rules apply, so I'll have to follow those constraints: a rocket weighing less than 16 ounces and having less than 113 grams of fuel can be flown at anytime in a park with appropriate dimensions; a rocket weighing between 16 and 53 ounces or having between 113 and 125 grams of fuel requires notification to nearest air-traffic control center; if the rocket weighs more than 53 ounces or contains more than 125 grams of fuel, then FAA must grant permission.

I write this here as a personal reminder to myself because I will forget.
