For our launch schedule, please visit our Facebook Group. Our scheduled launches will be listed in our events.
Welcome to the webpage of the Sierra Rockets, the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) #728, and the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) Reno Chapter.
This is a hybrid club of both NAR and TRA. We usually scheduled launches on the first Saturday of the month, generally from March until November.
We had to cancel the March, April, and May Launches due to the lakebed still having water on the playa.
OUR NEXT LAUNCH IS TENTATIVELY SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 3, 2023
Please check here or Facebook for more details as the date gets closer.
We welcome all levels of rocketeers and we love having visitors, even if it is just to watch!
If you would like more information about rocketry, or the Sierra Rocketry Club, please use the Contact Us page to send us an email.
We look forward to hearing from you.
* Our Certificate of Authorization from the FAA now allows us to do 3-day launches. We'll camp and have a fun weekend launching rockets. We will post 3-day launches as soon as we have them planned.
* Our ceiling is 9,500' AGL (Above Ground Level) and 13,500 AGL Call in.
* Our launch photos will be on our Facebook group's page. That makes it easier for everyone to share photos. Please check there for the photos. You can find our Facebook Group here: SIERRA ROCKETS FACEBOOK GROUP.
A fun video shot at a monthly launch
Please note that the drone was positioned very far away from the launch pad, and as you can see in the video, on the opposite side of the lakebed from the launch control. In the very very small chance that a rocket would have hit the drone, it would have been over the lakebed with no people anywhere near it.
