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. 

Our NATA Safety 1st Linemen offer top notch aircraft detailing and fueling services.  Mid Island's aircraft maintenance shop maintains our school fleet to FAA standards as well as providing retail services which range from basic oil changes to engine installations.  We provide 100 hr, annual and aircraft pre-buy inspections as well as stock and sell a huge variety of Cessna and after market aircraft parts. 

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.

Mid Island Flight School News

Alien Flight Training:

Mid Island Flight School has been approved for the training of foreign students. We have provided flight training for all ratings to students from many different countries around the world. If a student is not a U.S. citizen, there are certain steps which must be followed to insure that the proper government training authority is obtained prior to beginning flight training.

A foreign student must enter the U.S. with the proper immigration Visa; for flight training purposes, this would be an M1 Visa. You first must apply to study at a USCIS-approved school in the United States. Mid Island Flight School is a USCIS- approved school and can assist you with this Visa application by providing the necessary I-20M form which you will then present to the US Embassy or Consulate in your country. You should take the USCIS Form I-20 to the nearest U.S. consulate to obtain a student visa. You must also prove to the consulate that you have the financial resources required for your education and stay in the United States. The Embassy or Consulate will be the governing body to issue the M1 Visa for travel and study in the U.S.

What is the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP)?

The mission of the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP) is to ensure that foreign students seeking training at flight schools regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) do not pose a threat to aviation or national security. Responsibility for conduction security threat assessments for foreign flight training has been transferred to the Department of Homeland Security.
