Default Long Island Silent Flyers

The Long Island Silent Flyers is a club of about 65 members. We fly pure gliders, electric gliders and slow to moderate speed electric airplanes that are flown according to glider field rules in a glider like fashion.

www.lisf.org

We are located on South Woods Road on the Syosset/Woodbury border, on Long Island in New York. We are located about 35 miles east of NYC and 1 mile from the Long Island Railroad station in Syosset.

Our flying field is located in Stillwood Woods Nature Preserve. We have an open field area of about 800X1600 feet which is great for gliders.

If you are located on Long Island, NYC, Westchester or even NE NJ, and would like to consider joining our club, please send me a PM.

In addition to the typical club activities, LISF is a memeber of the Eastern Soaring League.

www.flyesl.com

The ESL is a competition soaring League for Unlimited sailplane thermal duration competitions as well as hand launched/discus launched glider competitions.

Very much so. If you look at the electric forums you find people talking about thermals, lift, slope, camber .... soaring.

i read a bunch of your articles and posts on soaring Ed....thats what motivated my building the skimmer with ailerons and is still flown often at my clubs field. i planned on building the "bot" this winter,but weather is to good,so I'm doing a couple arf speed demons and hopefully a new wing for the GP RV-40,first wing came out warped seriously bad beyond use.

seems i should visit a few folks out your way to fly with.it's tough to find time to travel to visit other fields,but i really want to head both east and west of my location to visit friends.

thanks for the invite to join,hope a friendly visit is still free. stu

narrow is the place to land...wide is the space to crash....choose the narrow way!

Hey,
This club sound great! I have experience flying and I was looking into the Parkzone Radian Pro to get into gliding. Do any of your members use this plane? Is there anything comparable to it that may be better?

Radian and Radian Pro are VERY popular in our club. Many Easy Glider Pros, and of course higher end electric and pure gliders. Love to have you visit.

Sounds good! Are you the president? I read on your site that the field is locked by a gate. How does that work if someone want to come down and check it out?
