NAR Section #473


Welcome

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.

Covid-19 Policy

Pittsburgh Space Command encourages you to take whatever precautions you deem necessary to protect you, your friends and your family from Covid-19 while enjoying yourself at our monthly launches. We also ask that everyone respect each individual’s choices of how they choose to deal with Covid while attending our launches.

Launch Site Upgrade

Starting in June and continuing through October, all launches will have a Porta-Potty on site. This decision was made by the Club Officers in order to make the launches more family friendly.  If you like this improvement please let the Club know so we can plan for it at our annual business meeting.

Newsletter Status

Newsletter production is currently on hiatus due to the lack of a Newsletter Editor. Past issues will be posted on this site as time allows. 

 

If you are interested in filling the position of  Newsletter Editor and resuming production of Team Pittsburgh,  please contact our Section Advisor.
