COVID-19 Update

The National Association of Rocketry has directed that all NAR Sections shall postpone or cancel Section launches, meetings, and other group activities during the period of March 17 to April 1, 2020. See https://www.nar.org/update-on-covid-19-for-national-association-of-rocketry/ for more information.

The DART launches on March 28 and March 29 are cancelled.

The NAR will send an update on this policy on or before April 1.

Note: The DART launch cancellations on March 28-29 will not adversely affect TARC participants. All TARC practice and qualification flights are on nationwide “hold” until further notice (see https://rocketcontest.org/ for more information).

Welcome to DART!

DART supports low-power and mid-power model rocketry for the greater San Diego region. We also work closely with the local Tripoli prefecture (http://tripolisandiego.org/) for high power rocketry.

DART has launches on Fiesta Island approximately twice a month (except for our summer hiatus). The launches are free and open to the public. Anyone may participate
in the launch, or just to come by and watch. If you attend a DART launch, you won’t need any permits. Just show up and fly your rockets!  DART already has the required permits and forms with the SD Parks department and Fire department. We also provide launch pads and a central launch control.

You’re welcome to become a member of DART, although this isn’t required to attend DART launches.  Click on the “Membership” tab for more information.

Please contact us if you have additional questions.  We hope to see you at a future DART launch!
