The United Kingdom Rocketry Association (UKRA) promotes and represents high power, medium power and model rocketry in the United Kingdom for amateur research, educational and recreational purposes. UKRA is also the specialist technical body to the BMFA with responsibilities for High Power Rocketry.
In line with evidence and advice from other rocketry organisations, UKRA is now requiring all flyers using CTI Vmax motors to use at least one form of electronic deployment for recovery systems.
This measure is being implimented, due to the high numbers of delay grains snuffing out, resulting in no recovery system deployment in rockets relying solely on motor ejection.

Due to a recent issue with the UKRA website hosting provision, we have incurred a small amount of data loss which we are in the process of trying to recover.
Please bear with us whilst we try and fix this issue.

The council have considered the financial position of UKRA and the current fee structure. We have decided to make some changes to simplify and encourage membership and certification.
UKRA Membership fees for 2016 are as follows:
UKRA full membership - £5 (down from £10)
L1/L2/L3 and RSO certifications - are now free (down from £5) and will include a printed certificate. Pin badges for levels are £2.50 (no change)
Welcome to the new UKRA website.
There is plenty of information on here but we are currently working on more content and lots of adjustments - so please view as a work in progress.
