CAP's Model Rocketry program is an achievement program for cadets interested in the science, technology, and flight of model rockets. The guide (available below) builds on the foundation of Aerospace Dimensions, Module 4 Rockets, to introduce cadets to the hobby and science of model rocketry. The guide begins with simple alternative-power models and progressively challenges cadets with more advanced models.
Cadets who complete the written and performance requirements for each of the 3 stages, as certified by their unit commander, will be awarded the Cadet Model Rocketry Badge. For more details about the requirements for the model rocketry badge, go to CAPR 50-20.
- If provided by hardcopy, the test should be graded and the cadet provided a "Completion Certificate" (located at the bottom of the page) for the appropriate test.
- If the tests are taken online, the cadet will be provided a Certificate of Completion when they pass the test.
In the event a copy of a rocketry test is needed, please send your request to LMS@capnhq.gov or firstname.lastname@example.org . In your request, provide a point of contact and email address. NOTE: The model rocketry tests are NOW available online through the CAP Learning Management System (LMS) under Aerospace Education. For any problems with the LMS, contact LMS@capnhq.gov.
Model Rocketry Books: Each squadron should have one hard copy of the Model Rocketry book. If the squadron does not have a copy, the AEO and/or the instructor for the Model Rocketry Program may order one copy through the "CAP Materials" link on eServices. Because the books are for the instructors and due to limited printing funds at CAP NHQ, only one book may be ordered. The instructor may photocopy any information he/she feels is necessary to provide to cadets. Another suggestion is to direct the cadets to this web page where they can download any part of the book below.
