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.

From the Workbench - New Article July 2024

 John Brohm has once again provided us with another great construction article.  John's focus this month is updating the Estes Space Transport America.  As always there are a lot of interesting and helpful construction tips in this month's article. Thanks again John!

The Rangehead has Moved




This year Mr. Weber needs to put the area we usually set-up in back in to production.  He has asked us to set-up further west on his property to allow for this.  The star on the below image is the APPORXIMATE area we'll be setting up/ parking in.  We'll have to coordinate with the farm owner to make sure we're in the right place and parking where he want us to.  Please be patient when you show up to fly in May as we work the location and logistics out with the landowner.  Updates will be provided as we receive them.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
