Our Community

Our community is a loyal group of Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) supporters. Though there are many hamlets, townships and organizations, we all work together for the good of our region. This community is business-minded, outspoken, hard-working, and loves to frequently travel. MacArthur Airport is proud to be firmly woven into the fiber of our beautiful area.

Our Community Initiatives

MacArthur Airport is grateful for our community and the support it offers. The airport's increasing outreach and involvement reflects and reciprocates that commitment.

Our newest partnership is with the Cradle of Aviation Museum and the Town of Islip. We are working closely with the museum to bring hands-on STEM and Aviation education and training to Long Island students. We are grateful for the support of our airlines, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the MacArthur Airport Team that volunteers to share their experiences. East/West Industries, a company located adjacent to ISP, designs and manufactures products that save aircrew lives, also is participating in the education program.

Each year on Memorial Day Weekend, MacArthur Airport supports the Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach State Park as a key staging area for performing teams including the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. MacArthur Airport is also expanding involvement to include air show sponsorship and on-site presence in addition to our longtime annual association.

ISP also supports the Long Island Ducks minor-league baseball team based in Central Islip. Each week during the season, the Ducks and MacArthur Airport spotlight local community initiatives.

Long Island MacArthur Airport also actively participates with these organizations and more:

Long Island Association

Suffolk County Alliance of Chambers


Association for a Better Long Island
