Rocket Racing League Marks Historic Milestone in Earning Experimental Exhibition Certificate From the FAA for a Rocket Powered Airplane at Over 20 Venues in U.S.

NEW YORK, Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Rocket Racing, Inc. today announced that it has been granted an Experimental Exhibition Certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for the first of its next-generation Rocket Racer that has been selected as the baseline design for the fleet moving forward.
