Suburban Aero Club of Chicago - History

Suburban Aero Club of Chicago Celebrates our 60th year as a club in 2022.

SAC is also a long time AMA Gold member club and the 1st recipient of the “AMA Club of the Month” award. We also maintain great relationships with Forest Preserves of Cook County and SAC is a “Model Citizen” in the community!


Suburban Aero Club 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 Club of the Month August 2020!


We build and fly model aircraft of all types: member interests include airplanes, seaplanes, gliders, helicopters 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 off S Cicero Ave, Matteson, IL at the Cook County Forest Preserve Tinley Creek model airplane field. We fly float planes at Midlothian Reservoir (167th and Cicero) in Oak Forest.
