FAA airspace guidelines

Federal Aviation Administration class G or uncontrolled airspace
is permissible for unmanned rockets without additonal clearance.

Operations in controlled airspace requires an FAA waiver
(written permission) for rockets which have over either 125g
propellant or over 3.3 lb liftoff weight. Go to any local
airport for a sectional map and questions about uncontrolled
airspace locations. They do not answer questions on waivers.

Obtain a waiver (form 7711-2 at pdf link) for FAA
and contact the regional service center to submit it.
This is easy for individuals, clubs, or groups. It is FREE but
requires 45-60 days advance notice. Authorizations are also
available for multiple dates or annually if you call in to
activate it as needed. Ask your FAA representative about details.
