As a member of FSANA (Flight School Association of North America) we are pleased to announce that we are participating in another FSANA program, AeroChapters, announced in January 2015. Students in grades 6-12 may join the Mid Island Flight School Aero Chapter which will meet the fourth Thursday at ISP from 1730-1930. Students will learn responsibility as they elect officers and run their chapter. We will assist to help them organize guest speakers, aviation facility tours and learn more about aviation careers during these monthly meetings. Requires a one time $25 FSANA junior membership.
AeroExperience: An Aviation Adventure for Adults
A fun, one day, unique aviation experience for adventurous adults who are thinking about flight training or just want to get a taste of what it would be like to have a pilot license. After a classroom session on aerodynamics and flight controls, you will have a hands on flight in our full motion, Redbird, flight simulator. After you get the feel of the aircraft, step into a Cessna 172R and fly to Waterbury-Oxford for lunch (included) at 121 Restaurant. The day ends with an informative tour of a control tower. Wow…what could be more fun than this? Four per class. $399, 0900-1500. Call now to reserve a spot! Tentative classes will run the last Tuesday and Sunday of the month.
AeroParty: Take the Party to the Airport
Are you tired of the same old venue? Does your child love airplanes? Now your child can have a unique children’s party with an aviation theme. Learn what makes an airplane fly, sit in a real plane, tour a corporate hangar and play aviation themed games. Pizza, cake and an theme goody bag included. Why settle for the same old routine – the skies the limit with AeroParty!

PALS fuel reimbursement exemption:
Fly a mission for Patient AirLift Services and get reimbursed for fuel. Based at Farmingdale, PALS is the first patient service to offer fuel reimbursement to qualified pilots. If you meet the flight requirements you may be eligible for reimbursement. The new exemption will permit reimbursement for ALL legs, not just the legs with patients on board. Owners, receive a $.50/gallon discount on fuel purchased for a PALS flight. Rent a MIAS aircraft for a PALS mission and get a 20% discount. www.palservices.org
Rev: September 29, 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.
