Motor Sales transferred to sunwardhobbies.ca

Sunward will now remove the sale of rocket motors from the main site www.sunward1.com

It has been to difficult to offer competitive shipping to the US and as a result the sale of rocket motors will now be done at our new site www.sunwardhobbies.ca

Shipping will be to most Canadian addresses with pricing in Canadian dollars.  Customer in the continental US can still order motors but it will need to be done on a manual basis.

Sunward Responds to Canada's Proposed Rocketry Regulations

Natural Resources Canada published a proposed update to the Explosives Act and Regulation in the Canada Gazette 1 on March 17,
2012.  The original legislation is outdated as it was written before 1920.

Public comment and feedback is invited and is available for 75 days after the publication date.  After the comments are received and
evaluated, which may result in changes, the Regulations will be published in Canada Gazette 2 and become law in early January 2013.

Pyrotechnician Badge Arrived

My Fireworks Operator Certificate - Pyrotechnician - arrived to day in the mail.  This is the result of the course I took earlier.  Arrived sooner than I expected.

This will allow me to handle all types of rockets motors and a defined class of pyrotechnic effects.
