This page is where you’ll find useful information about the Team America Rocketry Challenge, or TARC. Below are PDF files containing the 2016 TARC Promotional Flyer and 2016 TARC Rules. There’s also a link to an excellent article by Tim Van Milligan at Apogee Components on designing TARC style rockets. Other information will be added as it becomes available.
Important points to remember about TARC are: 1) only senior members of NAR may verify TARC team qualification flights, provided they are not related to anyone on the team; 2) successful TARC teams start work on their designs early and conduct several test flights before their first qualification flight; 3) consistency and attention to detail is vital to any TARC team’s success.
