After a several year break, Southern Arizona Rocketry Association is proud to announce that its traditional weekend-long rocketry festival is returning to Southern Arizona April 1 – 3, 2022!

Please join us the first weekend in April for day and night launches as high as 5,000 feet above ground level, flights powered by motors up to M power, on site rocket vendors, and a collectable T-shirt commemorating Desert Heat’s return to southern Arizona!

RV and tent camping is available on site at the TIMPA launch site west of Tucson, but there are no hookups, no fires, & no potable water on site.

Rocketry Works will bring Aerotech single use and RMS motors, plus Estes motors. Rocketry Works can also deliver online orders to the launch if you place your order before Friday, April 1 at 9 am. Just use the coupon code PICKUP to waive shipping fees.

Note: SARA often launches on the north end of the TIMPA property. This is NOT the location for Desert Heat. Desert Heat is being held at the main TIMPA facility, one half mile south of the usual field.
