54mm RMS Long-Burn Reload Kit Update
3/7/95AeroTech has just received the good news from the DOT that shipment of our 54mm J135W and K185W "long-burn" high-power reload kits can now take place without pre-installing them in customer hardware. The J135W and K185W were Tripoli certified late last year.
If you're unfamiliar with these particular reloads, they offer spectacular burn times approaching eight seconds in duration, the longest in the AeroTech RMS high-power line-up. These two "White Lightning" reloads, in addition to the previously introduced J90W, offers unparalleled performance to the sport rocketeer who enjoys boosting less robust airframes or smaller diameter vehicles to high altitudes.
As with the other AeroTech "class 1.3C" reload kits, these long-burn reloads can only be sold to those National Association of Rocketry (NAR) or Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) certified sport rocket enthusiasts possessing a valid Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) low explosive user permit, unless they are purchased in the state of his or her residence. However, AeroTech is continuing to work with Tripoli and the High-Power Manufacturers' Association to secure a ruling which would exempt these and other high power motor products from the BATF permit/licensing requirements.
AeroTech high-power customers and dealers should note that these reloads are in stock and available for immediate shipment.
