CAR/ACF Membership Information

 
 
Overview
The Canadian Association of Rocketry / Association canadienne de fuséonautique is a volunteer run organization, open to anyone with a keen desire to safely participate in high power or model rocketry. High power rocketry has grown quickly in popularity, and the CAR/ACF and its affiliate clubs are hosting high power events on a routine basis. Visit the Affiliated Canadian Clubs page to see all local and regional CAR/ACF organizations which hold regular model rocket and high power launches.

In 1996 CAR/ACF obtained a reciprocal agreement with the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) for recognition of CAR/ACF's high power certification process. An agreement has also been reached with the Tripoli Rocketry Association, the U.S. high power rocketry organization - CAR/ACF members have access to Tripoli sanctioned launches in the United States (and vice versa) with complete recognition of certification levels. In 2002 the CAR/ACF Motor Certification Committee reached reciprocal recognition with both NAR and TRA motor testing committees for the certification of rocket motors.
