Welcome to the Black Knights - The West Midlands Rocket Club!
The Black Knights was originally set-up nearly 14 years ago by a small group of local rocketeers with the aim of providing a friendly club for anyone interested in flying model and hobby rockets. As a member of the UK Rocket Association (UKRA) we abide by the rules and conduct of UKRA and all of our launch control staff are UKRA-qualified Range Safety Officers (RSO).
We try to meet every month at our current launch site in Oxhill where we are lucky enough to have a flying altitude limit of 7000ft, a 'K' class site. Our members fly a wide range of rockets, from small models to large high power rockets, and everything in between!
As a small club we always welcome new members, so if you have been bitten by the rocket bug, or you just want to find out more, then why not pop along to our next flying session we have rockets in stock that you can build and fly on the day! There will always be someone around who can help you fly your rockets on the day and advise you on rocket related projects that you may be planning.
Rocketry is a very family orientated hobby, so feel free to bring them along and don't forget the packed lunch!
