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

 

thank you Gov. Cuomo, Rose Harvey & George Gorman

 

They haven’t had the money/time to alter the sign that says “Home Of The White Tail Deer’ at the park entrancethey killed all of them a year ago. 

Building rental cabins with taxpayer money is the priority. Maybe that’s why they killed off all the deer first.

Remember them ‘in your prayers’ at the next election
Remember what Gov Cuomo said …. ” America was never great!”

Vote Intelligently – it’s your money they spend.

 

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.

 

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)
