Hello all,

Can someone please provide information on experimental rocketry rules and regulations in EU, specially in France?
I am a foreigner living in France and I want to start some experiments on solid propulsion in my garage.
But, I don't know the regulations on experimenting rocketry.
I found some HPR clubs in France, but their site is outdated. I even contacted them with no luck.
Anyone?

Many thanks

Maybe he’ll chime in. He travels to Europe in summer and launches rockets somewhere.

Unfortunately the french authorities are not very keen on experimental rocketry and I think that it goes for most west European counrtries so if you want to do it just keep it quiet.

We do rocketry in France but we have to use commercial motors, we also have some altitudes limitations so most of the time french people launch inItaly, Spain, Switzerland etc ... In Europe unlike the US we do not have deserts where nobody lives, it is a lot more crowded here ....
As people said we have 2 Tripoli prefectures and thanks to the PIPs that we have recieved from Tripoli we have managed to develop rocketry a bit.
Those are the web sites:
1st prefecture

2nd prefecture
