PREFECTURE ONE
Copyright © 1964-2020 Tripoli Pittsburgh, Tripoli Rocketry Association, Inc.

In 1964 high school students in the East Pittsburgh area of Southwest Pennsylvania formed a science club leaning heavy into rocketry activities. Thus was born Tripoli. Through variations on the name of Tripoli the group persevered until the early 1980's when it sprang into the National Organization known as The Tripoli Rocketry Association, Inc. Today Tripoli Pittsburgh is a Prefecture and the National Tripoli has evolved into an International Organization with members and Prefectures (clubs) in every state and 22 Countries around the world.
While an adult "club" Tripoli Pittsburgh is open to mature persons interested in High Power Rocketry and Experimental Rocketry activities. We do require local members join the National Organization. You needn't be a rocket genius to join as our members are open and friendly and willing to assist anyone serious in their rocketry pursuits. As a local group we conduct several Rocket Launches throughout the Summer months of Pennsylvania. See LAUNCHES in the menu above. These launches are open to anyone interested and we have many junior scientists (kids) attending and many times flying more than the adults. While our Launch Site is limited in altitude we still can manage large rockets and very High Power rocket motors.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We will be happy to assist you into this fascinating hobby and look forward to meeting you on the Launch Range or at one of our local meetings.
