Promote model rocketry and encourage others to join this family oriented and fun hobby. It is through this hobby that we hope to encourage and inspire our youth to pursue sciences and aviation.
HOW TEAM OHIO BEGAN
My father was an engineer that conducted flight tests
at Arnold Engineering Development Corp. in Tullahoma, Tn and later worked
for Nasa at Moffitt Field in San Jose, CA. I guess it is easy to see where
I acquired my interest; however it was not until 1992 that I began building
and flying model rockets. As my interest grew, so did the fascination with
the principles of flight where I began pursuing the certifications for
high-powered flight. Currently, I am a Member of NAR and Tripoli with a
Level III certification.
To date, my highest launch is 12,989 feet with a scratch built rocket named "Pecos Bill's Cyclone" It was launched on an M1939 Aerotech Motor at Airfest 2009 in Argonia Kansas in September 2009.
Team Ohio Rocketry was formed as an educational entity
that reaches out to scout units, church
youth groups and students with the
emphasis on educating them on the physics of flight, how the space race
began in 1957 and bringing the timeline forward to the Shuttle Technology
that is being used today. If you would like to discuss hosting a Build n' Fly event for your school or club, please contact us and we will schedule a time to meet. Additionally, please make sure you view the photos of our past events listed under Event section of our site.
In 2007 we made a decision to provide support to rocket clubs throughout Ohio, Michigan and Inidana and carry a variety of motors, hardware, kits and supplies.
From nuts and bolts to kits, motors and parachutes, we work very hard to assist fellow fliers in any way to make flying fun and simple.
It is through our association with Tim Leyr of Wildman Rocketry that we are now a Wildman product vendor. Tim has secured strong relationships with most of the significant vendors and manufactures in this hobby and we are delighted we can make these components available to you.
