AMRS and NZRA Reciprocal Arrangement

The Australian Model Rocket Society Inc. (AMRS) is pleased to announce a new reciprocal arrangement with the New Zealand Association of Rocketry (NZRA). After the announcement of Australian Rocketry’s Thunda Down Under 2015, and its strict but internationally recognised requirements for certification in Australia, the NZRA proactively refined their existing certification processes thereby ensuring the formal recognition of NZRA Certifications at the event.

Fast forward 12 months and a number of AMRS Executive Committee Members were privileged to attend the NZRA National Launch Day 2016 (NLD). Apart from having the opportunity to attend a world class event, the AMRS were able to witness the professional approach of the NZRA Committee and their HPR certification process. After official discussions between the two organisations, the AMRS is excited to accept the NZRA’s certification processes as equivalent to its own, i.e. held at the same high standards as the AMRS that has led to its acceptance as equivalent to several other international rocketry organisations.

This is an exciting progression for rocketry in Australia and New Zealand!
