Rev: Mar 30, 2015
The Mid Island family's main concern is to insure the safety and confidence of our students and pilots. We provide flight training from the Private Pilot through the Airline Transport Pilot. We offer ground school courses to complement our flight instruction on LI. Once a year, our renters fly with our CFI’s for their Annual Flight Review where they can practice IFR approaches, gain Class B experience, plan a night cross country or work on any flight area of their choice. All renters fly under their own Personal Limitations Checklist which they can amend as their flight experience level increases.
On the second Saturday of each month, our students and renters meet at ISP to participate in our free seminars where varied guest speakers discuss an array of interesting aviation topics.
