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 to join up. 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.
Visitors are welcome to watch and ask questions. For Insurance and Safety reasons, non AMA visitors can not travel beyond the picnic tables while planes are flying.
The DEATH of yet another club due to a loss of it’s site:
They told us they would work with us, find another spot for us and provide a paved runway like the one we bought and paid for. Here’s how that worked out, notice the time frame how quickly they ‘worked’ with us.
After almost 40 years of being outstanding permit paying patrons, Field 9 CLOSED Permanently – due to construction of ‘rental cabins ‘. Relocated us to the ‘Mosquito Field’. Effective 6/2017
Mosquito Field CLOSED PERMANENTLY to flying due to noise complaints. Relocated us to Field 8. Effective 8/2017
Field 8 – Fall/Winter flying ONLY due to the Piping Plover.
Temporary flying of electrics only, spring/summer, across from Park office. (90% of permit paying members) Gas & Nitro not permitted. Effective 3/2018
FIELD 8 vehicle access is restricted to members with permit only, this will be strictly enforced.
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 and Park Permit with them while active at the field. All aircraft being flown are required to have BOTH – AMA ID and FAA registration on the aircraft.
