Suburban Aeroclub of Chicago (SAC) was founded in 1962 and is one of the oldest model aircraft clubs in the nation.
We are an AMA Gold Leader Club, a distinction achieved by only 5% of AMA chartered clubs.
The first AMA Leader Club of the Month August 2020! Carl Goldberg Vital People Award!
We build and fly model aircraft of all types: member interests include airplanes, seaplanes, gliders, helicopters, quad copters and drones. We have an instructional program to help new members get started in the hobby, and we run a number of events throughout the year.
Our regular flying site is at 19416 S. Cicero Avenue, Matteson IL at the Cook County Forest Preserve model airplane field. We fly floatplanes at Midlothian Reservoir (167th and Cicero) in Oak Forest.
