AMRS and NAR Reciprocal Arrangement

Postby Scoop1261 » Mon Dec 01, 2014 7:12 am

The Australian Model Rocket Society Inc. (AMRS) is pleased to announce a new reciprocal arrangement with the National Association of Rocketry (USA) (NAR). The new arrangement will see the recognition of High Power Rocketry (HPR) Certifications and Motor Testing completed under AMRS, recognised the by the NAR.

A few compliance caveats exist as per the below:
- Both AMRS and NAR hold independent insurance which is only valid for their respective countries and events.
- As with motors that are imported into Australia, USA users of motors certified by AMRS still have to comply with relevant USA regulations.
- Flyers of both countries need to acquaint themselves with each other's specific regulations before flying.

This new relationship has been the result of significant discussions and meetings by both organisations. With AMRS hosting Australian Rocketry’s Thunda Down Under 2015 in March next year, this will benefit HPR participants and those who are planning certification attempts from all over the world.

With the Australian Youth Rocketry Challenge (AYRC) entering its sixth year, the AMRS looks forward to working with the NAR further, to bring students from the AYRC and Team American Rocketry Challenge (TARC) together on the international stage.

This is an exciting progression for rocketry in Australia!

Absolute Game Changer! AMRS certs and AMRS motor testing accepted internationally! It quite literally means I can fly a L3 rocket at e.g. NARAM with my QRS membership card! What a pleasure!
