        For The Old Time Aviation Enthusiast, Part I
       Many people don’t realize how big a part Nassau County played in aviation history in the United States.
Many "local" air fields dotted the Nassau County landscape from east to west and from the north shore to the
south shore. In the area now know as Levittown, there were several "local" airfields. One was located near what
is Jerusalem Avenue in the Levittown/Hicksville area and another one that was in the area of Hempstead Turnpike
in Levittown. George Maher has gone through many photos and came up with many that involved the department
and are pictured in this issue of the newsletter and the next issue to follow. I did some research and got much
information from the Cradle Of Aviation Museum and also on line in various places and we have come up with
this story about the history of aviation in Nassau County. We hope you find it interesting.

         Over the course of the 20th century there have been about 70 airfields located on Long Island, the majority
of these were active in aviation’s ‘Golden Age’. Large airfields like Mitchel and Roosevelt were the exception,
most tended to be small with only simple structures. Others however were unique. The exclusive Aviation Country
Club in Hicksville catered to the tastes of wealthy Long Island aviators and Curtiss Field in Valley Stream was the
largest civil airport here for a time. Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn was New York’s first municipal airport and
North Beach in Queens eventually evolved into today’s sprawling LaGuardia complex.
          One hundred years ago, airplanes and not thoroughbreds raced at the famed Belmont Park Racetrack
during the 1910 Belmont Park Aviation Meet, the first international aviation meet held in the United States. For
ten days in the fall of 1910, the world’s leading aviators and the most advanced aircraft gathered at Belmont
Park.
         To commemorate this unique anniversary the Cradle of Aviation Museum put together a special exhibit
that was at the Museum for a limited time this fall. The exhibit featured examples of the type of aircraft that flew
at the Belmont Meet, including a French "Antoinette" and "Demoiselle" that were on loan from other museums.
         The Belmont Park Aviation Meet offered a total of $75,000 in prize money in various categories, a huge
sum for 1910. At the Meet several new world records were set including altitude (9714 feet) and speed (61mph).
The Meet also allowed Long Islanders and New Yorkers to see airplanes in flight for the first time.
         In May 1910, near what is currently known as Plaza Elementary School on Seaman Avenue and Rockville
Drive in Baldwin, a breakthrough in American aviation history was made. The first all-American monoplane
was designed, built, and successfully flown at this location by brothers Arthur and Albert Heinrich. In the plane's
initial and subsequent models, its unique designs featured controls that were combined into one stick which
allowed the pilot to fly the plane using one hand.
         Long Island is important in the history of aviation. Roosevelt Airfield was located in Garden City, Nassau
County. From this airport, Charles Lindbergh took off on his historic 1927 nonstop Orteig Prize flight from New
York to Paris, France. Roosevelt Airfield was closed in 1951. Its land was redeveloped for commercial uses,
including a shopping mall, Hofstra University, and numerous mid-density housing developments.
         Long Island was also the location of major historic aerospace companies. Farmingdale-based Republic
Aviation, for instance, manufactured the famed P-47 fighter aircraft during the World War II period. Grumman
Aircraft, with operations in Bethpage and Calverton, produced the F-14 U.S. Navy fighter during the 1970s and
1980s. It was also the chief contractor on the Apollo Lunar Module that landed men on the moon. They received
the contract on 7 November 1962, and ultimately built 13 lunar modules (LMs). One is on display at the Cradle
of Aviation Museum at the former Mitchel Air Force Base on the Hempstead Plains of Long Island.
         Another important historic Long Island airport was Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn. Established in the
early 1930s, it was New York City's first commercial airport. It was the terminus of historic flights by Amelia
Earhart, Roscoe Turner, Wiley Post, and Howard Hughes. Its runways were closed in the 1970s. The property
was turned into part of a wildlife refuge.
         The aviation industry mushroomed in Nassau County during World War II. America's most famous
warplanes, vital to victory, were manufactured at the Grumman and Republic factories. There, production
continued as a major part of the county's economic base during the post war years, climaxed during the 1960's
when the technicians at Grumman built the Lunar Module which successfully landed on the moon in July 1969.
                                                                                       ARPO December 2010 5
