I understand that there are federal laws prohibiting the possession of high power motors to those under 18 regardless of certification. I also understand that those of us with undeveloped brains can make some poor choices. I myself have enjoyed the close interaction I had with my mentor during my junior certification and still have when I fly high power. It is extremely valuable to have someone experienced guiding you. However, I wonder if this is necessary for juniors that have been flying high power for years. I am writing an argumentative paper for school in favor of more possibilities for junior high power rocketeers and am interested to know what the public opinion is. I am personally of the opinion that juniors should have more freedoms like being able to certify level 2 and fly by themselves etc, but I am eager to hear your thoughts. I hope to hear both sides of the argument so I can have lots of input. Please consider sharing your thoughts on the subject. Should juniors be able to prove themselves responsible enough to have the same privileges as a certified adult? or are junior certifications dangerous enough as they are? Whatever the opinions, I know minors can't be in possession of high power motors but I would love to hear your views all the same. Thanks for taking the time to read this and for all responses!
