National Association of Rocketry

The National Association of Rocketry is by far the most well known rocket organization. It's huge. Immense. Really, really big.

They also tend to stress smaller modrocs (sigh..). The NAR was slow to hop on the bigger higher faster bandwagon in high-powered rocketry (often abbreviated HPR), as much of its membership uses small black-powder fired motors instead of the higher impulse composite fuels typical in HPR's.

NAR contests are large, and have a huge competitor base stemming from all demographic groups and often include a lot of real masters. NAR rockets tend to be smaller than HPR-class rockets; the ever-popular Estes enterrage of rockets and motors are examples of typical NAR sanctioned rockets.
