A big thanks to everyone who attended this years Veterans Memorial Airshow at the Sunken Meadow State Park.....It was a great success! We had expertly flown warbirds, aerobatic and 3D planes, as well as representations of civilian aircraft put on a great show for the crowds. Even a few lucky winners were pulled from the audience to fly under the supervision of club certified instructors. We hope everyone had fun and hope to see you again next year!
This years Veterans Memorial Airshow featured a number of warbirds highlighting a wide range of military aircraft history. Our pilots put on a great show flying these aircraft solo as well as in formation. It was quite a sight to see our pilots open the show with a missing man flyby in honor of our nations Veterans. Check out some of the photos and videos below as well as in our media gallery.
A big welcome to Mike, our newest member! Mike is an experienced pilot of ten years and is an active member of a few AMA chartered clubs. He quickly proved his skill at our August meeting by passing his flight qualification test under instructors Dave and Stu.
Congratulations to Ron for passing his flight under the watchful eyes of instructors Dave and Pat. Good luck Ron and happy flying!
Thanks to those who participated in a display of RC model aircraft at the Longwood Public Library. Visitors enjoyed seeing our planes and had a blast trying out the flight simulator.
Representatives from Long Island Flying Eagles and L.I.A.R.S airplane clubs entertained the large crowds at the Sachem Public Library's maker faire style event, Steamcon!
