Biographical Sketch:

                   

Hello my name is Ron Watkins. I am a Born Again Rocketeer and live in Pinckney, Michigan. I am married and have three children and three grandchildren.  I am a retired insurance underwriter.

I have been building and flying model rockets since the 1960's. There are 404 rockets in my current active fleet from the following manufacturers: AAA Model Aviation, Aerospace Specialty Products, Aerotech, Apogee Components, Balsa Machining Service, Centuri, Composite Dynamics, Cox, Crown Rocket Technology, Custom Rockets, DynaStar Rockets, Estes, Flight Systems, FlisKits, Holverson Designs, LOC Precision, MPC, MRC, North Coast, Quest, Rocket Vision, Semroc Astronautics, Sunward Aerospace Group, Thrustline Aerospace and Vaughn Brothers. There are 18 rockets that have been lost or retired.  I have built and flown some rockets of my own design and have recreated several out of production kits. Like most model rocket enthusiasts I also have several kits waiting to be built.

This webpage has flight logs of 909 of my model rocket flights dating back to 1973.

I am a member of the National Association of Rocketry (#31475), the Jackson Model Rocketry Club in Jackson, Michigan and HUVARS.
