The Lufbery Flyers RC Club came to life in 2020 from the merger of two existing AMA clubs:
- Meroke RC Club
- Nassau Flyers/ Long Island Condors
Both clubs have a long history in the hobby of radio control flying, spanning over decades. We bring new pilots to the hobby, train them, have a building club with lessons on building or re-building airplanes, an annual swap meet, at least four annual flying events, and more.
We meet once a month, at 7:30 PM on the 3rd Thursday of each month, at the Clubhouse of the Merrick Golf Club located at:
2550 Clubhouse Road, Merrick, NY 11566
We fly at Lufbery Aerodrome, which is located inside Cedar Creek Park in Seaford, NY (Long Island.) Our field is dedicated to Raoul Lufbery, a French-born pilot who flew and died fighting for the Allied forces in World War I. Raoul Lufbery trained in the USA before going over to Europe to fight in the war.
After many decades of friendly competition, we decided that it would make more sense to join forces and resources to build a bigger, more diverse club. It took us a few years to decide on it, but we finally did it. We completed the club merger in late 2020. And here we are!
