2024 Spaceport America Cup Teams looking for Tripoli Rocketry Mentors


Student teams from around the world are applying to compete in the 2024 Spaceport America Cup. These teams will be building and launching Level 3 sized rockets. Each of the teams must have a Flyer of Record/Mentor. Some teams have not been able to identify a flyer of record yet and that's where they need your help.

The Level 3 certified TRA Senior mentor works closely with the team throughout the build and design phase (remotely) and is present as the Flyer of Record for the launch. Student teams are expected to fund travel related expenses for their mentor. The competition takes place in southern New Mexico at Spaceport America from June 17-22, 2024. 

Tripoli is a non-profit organization dedicated to education, advancement, and safe operation of amateur high-power rocketry.  Our members are drawn from the United States and 22 countries across the globe.


The Tripoli Rocketry Association carries liability insurance covering launch events, classes, and other Tripoli Sanctioned Events. Adherance to Tripoli's Safety Code, and its Bylaws is required for coverage.


The Tripoli Rocketry Association is made up of "Prefectures." These are local groups geographically, that organize meetings, events and launches for the benefit of their members and those from other prefectures.
