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.

Next Launch:     February 20th

Launch Time:    Noon- 3PM

Special End of Year Photo Page

 

 

 

At our last launch of the year we hosted 19 students and their respective parents and teachers from Sylvania Northview HS, Sylvania Ohio.  They made the three and a half hour journey so that the students of Mr. Richard Sharp's engineering class could attempt their Level One NAR Jr HPR certification.  They all made it with no failures! Congratulations gang!  We also had somewhere around 10 CMU students attempt their Level One TRA certifications, while we don't have the numbers on how many were successful, we're pretty sure most of them made it. Congratulations to the CMU gang as well.  If you were counting that was just under 30 certifications in less than 3 hours. What a busy and fun filled day.  Anyways, click here if you'd like to see what paying forward to this great hobby of ours looks like.
