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: Jan 22nd
Launch Time: Noon-3 PM

This is a build and fly contest where everyone attending gets to vote on their favorite models. We hope you decide to participate.
