MTMA - The Mantua Township Missile Agency


The Mantua Township Missile Agency (MTMA) is Section #606 of the National Association of Rocketry (NAR). We are a group of rocketeers in the greater Kent, Ohio area. Our gatherings are informal, family-oriented “rocket-picnics.” Most of us have children, and they are encouraged to participate. We usually hold launches on the second and fourth weekends of each month. For any weekend of a scheduled launch, the launch is planned for Saturday with Sunday as a rain date.

Our launches are conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code and the NAR High Power Rocket Safety Code. All rockets to be launched are subject to approval by the Range Safety Officer (RSO) and the Launch Control Officer (LCO). For certain sizes of rockets and rockets expected to reach certain altitudes, a flight simulation may be required. Refer to the information posted about each launch for specific information about the launch site.

MTMA launches are open to all.

The most updated information about upcoming launches may be obtained from the MTMA Group Email List.

* We lunch until everyone has had enough, or the listed ending time, whichever happens first. If you arrive late, you may find that we have already launched, packed up, and left.

Non-member range fees are $5 per launch day. A Basic club membership is $10 per family per calendar year, and entitles the member family to a reduced range fee of $2 per launch day. A Frequent Flyer membership is $20 per family per calendar year, and entitles the member family to fly without paying range fees for the entire calendar year. Dues and fees are all “per-family.” Range fees are “once-per-launch-day,” not “once-per-flight.”
