Bernard C Anderson is a flight instructor at Mid Island Air Service at Brookhaven Airport,Shirley,NY.
Bernard's interest in aviation began at age 14 with a family vacation to Florida in 1963. Upon landing in Miami, Bernard told his father "I want to become a pilot". Flying lessons at Teterboro,NJ and occasional CAP orientation flights followed the next few years.
Bernard started classes at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Sept 1968, soloed Oct 3 same year. Financial constraints meant only 2 years of studies and flying at ERAU and years later obtained a Private Pilot's License through a flying club while on USAF duty. Bernard attended Daniel Webster College 1982-1986 graduating with a degree in Aviation Management/Flight Operations. Bernard started a career with the FAA in 1985 at Boston Center as an air traffic assistant; a year later became a specialist at Bangor AFSS in Maine.
Bernard also obtained part time work as a scenic tour pilot at Acadia Aviation in Bar Harbor,ME in 1987. Bernard relocated to Islip NY AFSS in 1988, obtaining the CFI rating in 2002 at Mid Island, then a CFII through SUNY, Farmindale. A short period of work as traffic watch pilot preceded Bernard's present career as CFI at MIAS; retirement at FSS begins Nov 5,2007.
Bernard's next step is continuing at MIAS with the multi-CFII rating. Bernard also has experience as a commercial pilot ground school instructor at SUNY.
