Join the National Association of Rocketry - Airplanes and RocketsThe National Association of Rocketry (NAR) has been around since 1957. At one time, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) was pretty tightly joined with them in covering model rocketry events and promoting model rocketry. In fact, for while there was space allotted in American Aircraft Modeler, AMA's monthly magazine, for model rocketry. From February 1968 through August 1969 there was a newsletter feature entitled "Model Rocketeer" in addition to a separate article, often written by G. Harry Stine. A complete list of all editions is provided below.

Sport Rocketry, Part 1, October 2006 - Airplanes and RocketsThe NAR and AMA still work together. For example, the National Aeronautic Association (NAA) delegates authority for aeromodeling and spacemodeling to the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), who has in turn delegated Spacemodeling (model rocketry) to the NAR.

Click the NAR logo to the left and go to the membership page of today's National Association of Rocketry. You can read a sample edition of the NAR's magazine, Sport Rocketry, by clicking the thumbnail image to the right (here is part 2).

For sometime (several years), the national headquarters of CAP has been genuine interested in the application of model rocketry into its aerospace education program for male and female cadets aged 13-19 During the mid 1960's through 1966, contact was continued until CAP drafted manual outlining a complete program incorporating the NAR Sporting Code.

On Nov. 1, 1967, Mr. G. Harry Stine, NAB Liaison Committee chairman, appointed USAF Sgt. Larry Loos, NAR #7127, to work directly with CAP on the project. Larry, a member of CAP for 13 years whose experience was mostly cadet training, etc., had just returned from his post as NAR District Director for U. S. Forces, Europe.

During 1968 he conducted an intensive study into every feasibility of making the program work in local communities. Test workshops, launches and activities were held through the cooperation of Colorado Wing CAP Hq., the Colorado Springs CAP Composite Squadron , Estes Industries, Flight Systems, Inc., and several persons who also were NAR-CAP members.

Larry reported at year's end that he will recommend to CAP that: 1) Cadets who qualify should enter a basic, intermediate or advanced MR class meeting separate from CAP; 2) competition be held through NAR and that CAP unit teams which earn points on the same basis as NAR members, select their best cadets to join NAR and compete in NARAM events.
