I'm still a bit confused. If I look at the Tripoli page on insurance, it says that you are covered if it is a sanctioned launch, and the definition of sanctioned is:Nope, as Tim posted above, Tripoli Members can launch rockets independently of any club and still be covered by Tripoli insurance. They just have to follow all the rules.
Also called Insured Launch. Any launch of a rocket that meets ALL of the following constraints:
1. Responsible person of launch shall be member of Tripoli in good standing.
2. Follows the appropriate Tripoli Safety Code.
3. Legal: All AHJ (e.g. FAA waiver) requirements/regulations met and any required permits secured.
4. Landowner permission/constraints followed.
So far, so good. But lower down, it says:
Why do we need to list launch sites in order for them to be covered by the insurance?
Tripoli requires this to properly “risk assess” insurance coverage perils.
So, if no forms or registrations are required, where does the launch site get "listed"?
