  • IEAS Home Page
    International Experimental Aerospace Society
    The IEAS is an education and research society of rocketry and space technology experimenters from around the world who wish to cooperate to achieve higher goals than would be possible when working individually. Together we can better defend ourights to carry out our research, share safe and effective techniques, and distribute the workload of larger projects. We intend to seek external funding sources to assist our research and educational out-reach efforts. See our Vision and Mission statements to learn more.

    Welcome to Rockets Australia!
    This site is designed for anyone interested in model rockets in Australia. Some of the information on this site will be useful to international hobbyists but seeing as there seems to be no other website for Australia, some of our information is there specifically for Australians. The Beginner' Section has advice on buying and building your first kit, and explains how a rocket works. The Legal Stuff Section has advice on the legal situation (specifically for Australia). The Special Project Section will highlight paticuarly cool rocket projects we hear about. Have a look around, enjoy.
