Changes to Certification Process

Whilst the development of rocketry by junior members is very important to UKRA, we have become aware of inconsistencies in the certification process between the UK and other countries. These inconsistencies also have the potential to bring rocketry into conflict with national laws.

Working Parties – UKRA Needs Your Help

The UKRA council is setting up four working parties to accomplish various tasks within the organization. By using a distributed model of working we are hoping that the organization can get a number of items of work completed before the AGM.
The working parties are being formed to look at specific issues and projects and are intended to allow any UKRA member to have a say and to feedback opinions and suggestions without the responsibility of being on the council.

UKRA AGM Announcement

The UKRA council are pleased to announce that the 2016 Annual General Meeting of the United Kingdon Rocketry Association will be on the evening of Saturday 17th September at the MRC Midland Sky event.
The council has decided to re-align the AGM with a popular flying event to ensure the possibility of maximum attendance and participation.
Further information regarding agenda and nominations for council will be issued by the Secretary nearer to the event.

UKRA launches Team Project Support for University Teams

UKRA has, over many years, received various requests for assistance with rocketry projects from teams of individuals, frequently in full time or higher education. UKRA is keen to promote and encourage this type of project.

Team projects have previously demonstrated detailed engineering insight and innovative solutions to the challenges of rocket flight and recovery.
