Up till now I have only flown H motors. I am wanting to get my level 2 this year before my level 1 expires. Would it be reasonable to fly my level 2 cert. on a K if I have only flown H's so far?
The reason I am asking this is because I want to fly a K270 in my rocket so it seams more financially reasonable to go straight from the H to K. However, I am not sure if I will be missing any important steps along the way if I skip I's and J's. Thoughts? Concerns? THANKS!

I have only flown a couple H motors and I plan to certify level 2 on a k590 in my talon 4 this spring. I think if you feel you are ready and know enough to do well, go for it.

It depends on how you feel. There is not much difference in the assembly of an H to a K (well a few minor things) but is your building skills up to par? I noticed first hand the difference in building tecniques needed when I flew a 3 grain L compared to the 4grain K's I had been flying in the rocket.

Your level 1 won't expire as long as you maintain your Tripoli or NAR membership. It will expire 1 year after your membership lapses. As long as the person(s) who will be witnessing the level 2 flight do not have a problem, you can use any certified J-L motor for your L2 flight. You do need to make the L2 flight within 1 year of passing the L2 test.
