How do I join the club?
Come to a launch or the annual general meeting and pay your dues to the club secretary. Membership dues are $40 per year for adults, $10 a year if you’re under eighteen and $20 a year if you’re a student and over 18 years of age. Your first visit to launch rockets is free and guests or spectators are always free. Just bring your rockets and motors as we provide all the launch equipment.

When is your next launch? 
We generally fly every two weeks on Sundays subject to weather conditions. It is important to either join our Facebook Group or our Groups.io Forum in order to see the GO or NO GO call made in the morning of a scheduled launch. The scheduled events are listed on the Launch Calendar page.

How to get there?
Please stand by for directions to our new launch site.

Can I use the field by myself at other times?
No. You can only access it during one of our scheduled launches.

Is your club still active?
Yes. The club is active. The best way to see what we are up to is to have a look at our Facebook page or Groups.io Forum

Can I fly home made motors at an ORG launch?
No. You need to use commercially manufactured certified motors at our launches. The Ottawa Rocketry Group does not encourage or support the manufacturing of solid rocket motors by amateur rocketeers.

What commercially manufactured and certified motors can I fly at an ORG launch?
Model rockets (under 1.5kgs) can be flown on any motor up to G impulse class. Our launch site is not approved for flying high power motors (over G impulse class).
