They are defined at 14 CFR Class 1 Model Rocket means an amateur rocket that:. Under the old rules launching large model rockets required prior notification of the FAA.
Under the new rules no such notification is required. So long as the general operating limitations at 14 CFR The rorm Class 2 rocket category covers high power formm with up to 40, N-s total impulse.
While the old rules prohibited flying unmanned rockets into controlled airspace the new rules do not. The new rules do however require prior authorization before launching. This is part of the operating limitations at 14 CFR Operating limitations for Class 2 High Power Rockets. Applications must be filed not later than 45 days prior to the date of proposed operations.
You should plan on applying for authorization as far in advance as possible. I suggest 60 or more days just to add extra time to your launch project management raa line.
Launch participants will want to know the altitude limits and other special provisions when they make their plans.

Filling out the form is complicated foem it being designed for airshows so the information it requests is not the same as the information required by 14 CFR When a Class 2 High Power Rocket requires a certificate of waiver or authorization, the person planning the operation must provide the information below on each type of rocket to the FAA at least 45 days before the proposed operation.

The FAA is charged with ensuring the safe use of a public resource: The primary way they do their job is by making sure that airplanes work as they were designed and have adequate operational limits, ensuring that pilots and other airspace professionals like controllers have been adequately trained and receive recurrent training, and by separating airspace users in operation by adequate distances.
It is the latter which will have the most bearing on your application. The application will ask for information relating to the airspace over your launch site, and the map will help you provide it in a form the FAA understands.
Go to a general aviation airport and look for the place where pilots pay for fuel or rent airplanes.
A total of 26 sectionals cover the continental US. Unless you are near a map boundary, the sectional should be the forj most used by pilots in your area.

Many resources on the web describe GPS and its use with maps.
Google searches are your friend. You can find a converter here for hand held GPS and other sources: Line 8 is also the 771-12 on which you request altitude. The FAA measures all flight operations in this language. Please read the NAR safety code and determine what altitude could be allowed based on the surrounding buildings and roads to your launch site. You may need to take this into account in renewing waivers from previous years. How high an application can be approved depends on taa other airspace users might be above your site, and ground conditions specified in the new 14CFR for the NFPA Please study these and determine what is allowed for the size of your site.
The FAA generally likes to have to 1, foot separations between users. If you can read the altitude of the terrain on the section map, you can add this to the requested altitude above ground level to arrive at the altitude above Mean Sea Level MSLwhich might be appreciated by the person processing your application.
Since you will need to markup your launch site operations on fwa USGS 7. I also use Google Earth to determine the safe distances for roads over 10 cars per hour that are afa involved in the launch and inhabited buildings not involved in the launch operations.
Some images in Google Earth are more recent than others. Always verify the location of inhabited buildings and check for new ones. Zoom in to look at the launch area you fly in and look over the buildings and roads not involved in the launch operations.

Markup your flight line and your control area.
