NAR Section #473
Pittsburgh Space Command is a sanctioned section of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). Since its inception in 1986 the club has brought rocketeers together from all over Western Pennsylvania to enjoy sport, high power and contest rocketry. During that time our club has safely launched over 22,000 rockets of all sizes and shapes.
Our launch site, located east of Grove City, PA is easy to access and with over 800 acres, is an excellent site for all types of rocket flights.
The club's launch equipment can support most types of flights, from 1/4A to K (and L and M with advanced notice), so we've got you covered.
Whether you are new to rocketry, or are an experienced rocketeer looking to join in the fun with our club, please feel free to come to one of our monthly launches and see what we are all about.
Next Launch: June 3rd & 4th
Launch Time: See Schedule
Launch Status: GO

Contest Page Update
Due to the number and nature of the competitions PSC has scheduled this year, we've added a Contest/Competition information page to the website. Here you'll find a schedule for the planned contest for the calendar year, along with rules, entry forms ( if needed) and contacts for additional information or questions you may have about any of these contests. Contests are open to all members of PSC and guests. With the number a scope of contests we've planned this year, we hope you find one or more to your liking and come out and give competition rocketry a try!
