MTMA - The Mantua Township Missile Agency

Welcome!

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 Cleveland and Akron, Ohio area. Our gatherings are informal, family-oriented “rocket-picnics.” Many of us have children, and they are encouraged to participate.

Our launches are conducted in accordance with the NAR Model Rocket Safety Code. Currently we can't support high power rocketry.  All rockets to be launched are subject to approval by the Range Safety Officer (RSO) and the Launch Control Officer (LCO).

Public MTMA launches are open to all.

Non-member (guest) range fees are $5 per launch day. Guests at our Harmon Flying Field launches are limited to single C-motor impulse, with no clustered or staged models permitted. Guest range fees are “once-per-launch-day,” not “once-per-flight.”

MTMA club membership is $20 per family per calendar year. MTMA members must also hold a valid NAR membership. Dues and fees are all “per-family,” but family members who are not NAR members are subject to the non-member (guest) impulse, cluster, and stage restrictions. We usually launch 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.

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

MTMA does host member-only launches.

MTMA frequently has model rocket launches that are only for club members. We typically bring our own launch equipment and leave the club equipment that we use for public launches. Guests may come and watch us fly, but because most newcomers are not NAR members and have NAR flight insurance, they will not be allowed to use the facilities.

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