The 2 stage rocket was built by Curt von Delius, which was boosted by a CTI N5800 to a CTI N1100 sustainer with an 11 s coast delay. The rocket flew to 244,186 ft MSL, although the GPS units did lockout due to the COCOM speed and altitude limits, the apogee was still able to be calculated.
The flight becomes the first amateur 2 stage launch to break the 200,000 ft barrier.
[Edit, 8/11/2018: The use of the term “2 stage rocket” refers to each stage being powered]
Video Caption: Experience this amazing supersonic near space flight through on board HD video. Curt von Delius’s state of the art PHX4 launched on June 16, 2018 from the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Accelerating to over 3.5 times the speed of sound the rocket coasted to 46 miles above sea level. This is the highest flight of any amateur two stage rocket. The reusable design was recovered using Disc Gap Band Parachutes and touched down 6.36 miles from launch.
Jim Jarvis launched his 3 stage rocket ThreeCarbYen to 175,000ft at the recent Balls 2018 launch event. N5800 to N1560 to M1401, very impressive and it was all recovered!
Video Caption: This three-stage flight was performed by Jim Jarvis (with lots of help) at Balls 27 on September 21, 2018. The launch was help at the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The flight reached about 175,000 feet.
Video Caption: In June 2017, ESRA and Spaceport America held the 1st Annual Spaceport America Cup. Over 1000 students, from 12 countries brought 92 rockets to the event.

Video Caption: This was the 2nd test firing of the 12 x 44″ KNSB static test fire motor for the Sugar Shot to Space project. The first firing was using two 12 x 20″ propellant grains each weighing 132 pounds for a total propellant weight of 264 pounds. This test was using three 12 X 13″ propellant grains, each containing 85 pounds of KNSB sugar propellant.

Video Caption: On June 24, 2017, interns and mentors from United Launch Alliance (ULA) launched the 53-foot-tall Future Heavy, breaking their own record for launching the world’s largest sport rocket. The rocket carried 16 payloads (experiments and instruments) from K-12 teams, Ball Aerospace mentors and a combined ULA/Roush Industries team. Working on their own time, ULA interns designed, built and launched the rockets with the guidance of mentors, and Ball Aerospace mentors volunteered their time to create and test their payload. The rocket launched at the Spaceport America Cup International Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition in association with the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA).
Video Caption: MASA’s hybrid engine rocket, Tortas 8, flies at the 2017 Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition for the inaugural Spaceport America Cup. It placed first in the 30,000 foot target altitude, student researched and developed, hybrid/liquid engine category. With this rocket, the team also won the Spaceport America Cup by being voted best overall by the judges.
