MARS has an excellent grass field in Geneseo, New York. We fly high power rockets (HPR) and low power rockets (LPR). Our field has hosted LDRS, the National Sport Launch (NSL), and will host NARAM in 2020. We recognize National Association of Rocketry (NAR), Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) and Canadian Association of Rocketry (CAR) high power certifications.

Monroe Astronautical Rocket Society, MARS Club

In order for MARS to begin a flying season we unfortunately can NOT allow spectators at this time!
MARS Rocketry is a family friendly rocketry club that flies at the National Warplane Museum airfield, just minutes from Rochester and only an hour from Buffalo, in Geneseo, NY. Started in the early 1960’s MARS is NAR’s oldest continually active section, and the largest rocketry club in New York state. Our launches host club members and guests flying rockets ranging in size from 1/4″A” powered Estes rockets to “N” powered monsters.

MARS is National Association of Rocketry (NAR) Section #136 and Tripoli Prefecture #162, all MARS launch activities are governed by the Tripoli Safe Launch Practices, NAR Model Rocket Safety Code and the NAR High Power Safety Code. If you wish to fly “High Power” with MARS you must be a NAR or Tripoli member, if you wish to fly “Research Motors” you must be an L2 Tripoli member and be prepared to show your membership card with certification level.

Spectators are welcome and there is NO CHARGE for spectators.  The Geneseo field is easy to find and is just a few miles from I-390. Bring the kids and plan to spend at least a few hours. Extreme Rocket Motors and Performance Hobbies will be in attendance at our launches- maybe you can re-kindle a past interest in rocketry!  Buy a kit and come back to fly it at our next launch.
