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.
