What you need to launch

Rocketry challenges and competitions have been growing across the nation, driven by a growing passion for aerospace. The first step to succeeding in these competitions is learning how to build, finish and launch a model rocket!

The Alpha is one of Estes’ most trusted rockets, responsible for millions of successful launches. It includes detailed visual instructions that walk you through the process of building a rocket yourself and is quickly ready to fly on the LifeTime Launch System. In addition, it uses the same methods of construction as the rockets you make for competitions like The American Rocketry Challenge.
