Burl Finkelstein, a hobby rocketeer from Shenandoah, Georgia developed a document on how this process could work and submitted it to the BATFE in Washington, DC. They commented, and hopefully this will eventually result in an official notice to all field offices. The RP article contains the full text, which apparently includes the BATFE's comments. In summary:
- The club must be a legal entity in its state.
- The club's articles of incorporation must specify who has possession and control of the controlled items.
- A non-licensed person, assuming they are not a prohibited person, can then purchase, check out and fly the motors (including black powder and e-matches too).
- The named responsible person or persons must be identified in the permit application and the club must have approved storage, etc.
- A certified letter from said club to a vendor will allow that vendor to sell controlled items to the non-certified person. I assume the materials would have to be shipped to the club's responsible person(s).
I hope to hear more details on this soon.
