Canberra Rocketry Group is a prefecture of the Tripoli Rocketry Association Inc (TRA) - an international rocketry body based in the US. The TRA provides affiliated clubs and their members with guidance and insurance coverage for all TRA and organised prefecture launches.


Visitors and those interested in potential membership and pursuit of this amazing activity are very welcome to join us at any of our organised launches - either as a spectator or guest participant.

Sponsored flying - guests

If you have built a low or mid-powered rocket and would like to fly it before considering joining, we can provide a one-day sponsored launch arrangement, whereby one of our members will supervise and act as the responsible party for the preparation and launch of your rocket. This is a great way to start, as our mentors can provide all kinds of hints and tips to ensure your experience is a good one.

After you are basking in the glory of your successful 'space shot', why not consider joining?  It's a great hobby that provides a wide range of options and challenges.

Why not come along, speak to our experienced rocketeers and see what it's all about!

Joining the Tripoli Rocketry Association

Memberships of the TRA is a prerequisite for all Canberra Rocketry Group members. Joining the TRA is easy - just jump over to their online system, fill out your details and in no time you'll receive your nice shiny Tripoli membership card and information folder.
Once you are a TRA member (a copy of the membership receipt is sufficient to get started), come along to a launch (if you haven't already - see above) and test your skills as a rocketeer!
