​I’m sad to announce that we are going to postpone our launch scheduled for this Saturday November 18th and 19th and try again another weekend. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. Thanksgiving is the next immediate weekend and I have been told that many are traveling and also have family plans and obligations so we will not be having a make-up date over the Thanksgiving holiday.

We could try again on the weekend over December 2nd and/or December 3rd but we do have another scheduled launch on December 9th. I don’t think having two launches in consecutive back to back weekends makes sense. So, my plan is to look for the best weather on Dec 2nd, Dec 3rd and Dec 9th, Dec 10th and whatever pans out best will be the next launch. I will keep everyone informed as soon as I know more about the next launch. Always check back on this website for the latest information.

Note: the Fall 2017 and Winter/Spring 2018 launch date schedule has been posted, goto SCHEDULE for the up to date launch calendar.

​​​​​Michiana Rocketry is all about the excitement of launching, flying and watching rockets. Our members are very young to seniors and novice to very experienced. Many are members of Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) or National Association of Rocketry (NAR) or both. The rockets flown at our sport launches are model rockets to high power and everything in between.

Our family oriented launches are open to the general public to fly or watch rockets. We have strict safety rules, our normal waiver of 12,000 feet with call in for 16,000 feet is obtained from the FAA. Our primary launch field is East of Three Oaks, MI in several square miles of corn fields. For this reason, our monthly launches are Fall thru Spring when the crops fields are empty.

As a club, we have bylaws we follow, an annual meeting, social events, share ideas, set-up and run the launches, and enjoy being part of a group with similar interests. Michiana Rocketry is a prefecture (local chapter) of the Tripoli Rocketry Association.
