Suffolk AeroModelers became an official AMA chartered club November 25, 1985. Many of the original organizers remained in the club until they passed away.

Our members come from all walks of life, older, younger, veterans, trades people, licensed full scale pilots, male and female.

Everyone is welcome. Our members have ranged from 8 to 80, novice to advanced. New members are always welcome – if you don’t know how to fly or what to buy, our instructors are here to teach and advise. Our flying site is maintained and paid for by the membership.

The flying field is located in a beautiful, serene, picturesque setting.  Features include a 300′ x 20′ asphalt runway, 3 taxi ways and a centrally located pit area making it easy to adapt to wind direction changes. For Insurance and Safety reasons, non AMA visitors must not travel beyond the picnic tables while planes are flying.

Visitors are not allowed to stop on the roadway or park on the side of the roadway, state police will issue citations. We have ample on site parking. Access is by permit only however when space allows, visitors are welcome to park inside our gate and observe the planes only.

Beach walkers are not permitted to park inside our gate and will be towed or ticketed if they do.

Guest pilots are required to get approval from a club officer first, prior to coming to the field. Guest pilots will be issued a pass so other members at the field are aware that the proper permission was given.

All pilots are required to carry a current AMA card with them while active at the field. All aircraft must have AMA & FAA ID.

Our monthly meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at the Brookwood Hall Senior Center, located at 50 Irish Lane in East Islip. Irish Lane can be accessed from Union Blvd or Main St. (27A)
