Welcome to the Central Illinois Aerospace home page

Central Illinois Aerospace (CIA) is Champaign-Urbana's model rocket club, an affiliate of the Champaign Park District, the National Association of Rocketry, and the Tripoli Rocketry Association. We're dedicated to safety, education, and above all FUN in our model rocket activities. Twice-monthly meetings cover a variety of topics. Fully-insured launches are held twice each month, including GARLO, our biggest launch of the year. We coordinate with the FAA for high-power rocket launch waivers. In addition we hold occasional workshops on various aspects of hobby rocketry. We are also available to put on a variety of educational programs for schools and other groups. Non-members, newcomers and spectators are always welcome at all events. Check our Operations page or download our calendar for 2012 (PDF - 98 KB). Come fly with us! Check our Contacts page for links to other rocketry groups and events. Take a look at our photo gallery to see how much fun model rocketry is.
