AMRS and NZRA Reciprocal Agreement

Postby AMRS Executive » Fri Mar 18, 2016 8:44 am

The Australian Model Rocket Society Inc. (AMRS) is pleased to announce a new reciprocal arrangement with the New Zealand Association of Rocketry (NZRA). After the announcement of Australian Rocketry’s Thunda Down Under 2015, and its strict but internationally recognised requirements for certification in Australia, the NZRA proactively refined their existing certification processes thereby ensuring the formal recognition of NZRA Certifications at the event.

Fast forward 12 months and a number of AMRS Executive Committee Members were privileged to attend the NZRA National Launch Day 2016 (NLD). Apart from having the opportunity to attend a world class event, the AMRS were able to witness the professional approach of the NZRA Committee and their HPR certification process. After official discussions between the two organisations, the AMRS is excited to accept the NZRA’s certification processes as equivalent to its own, i.e. held at the same high standards as the AMRS that has led to its acceptance as equivalent to several other international rocketry organisations.

This is an exciting progression for rocketry in Australia and New Zealand!

Great work. Looking forward to flying alongside our kiwi freinds at TDU 18
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

Great outcome and very well done to all involved. Wow, we are really putting the runs on the board.

So when do we add NZ to the national / international / trantasman flying circus?

It's a fantastic opportunity and a huge Thankyou to all involved with AMRS and respective club members.
It all started in earnest in 2013, and ever since its been open arms and great help from so many Australian rocketeers. Even the sheepish digs all add up to a great relationship built.

From here, kiwi fliers will be present at launches from time to time. ARTDU18 will have another NZ gang turn up. Of course now we know Aussie fliers migrate to other states each year....
Wow, wouldn't an event in NZ be something!
