Mission Statement:
"We steadily improve our processes and procedures in order to make our customers ecstatically happy while maintaining the dignity of our entire family of employees".


Mid Island Flight School is pleased to announce AeroCamp.
AeroCamp is a program designed to give young people a unique opportunity to explore the world of aviation and aerospace. As a member of the Flight School Association of North America, our flight school is proud to host AeroCamp for the kids in our Long Island community.

Campers have the opportunity to learn first hand about the dynamics of airplanes and flight along with the broad spectrum of careers in the aerospace industry. Campers get to fly an airplane if they so choose. There is a strong education component that all campers receive. There are field trips to explore various elements that together form the aerospace industry.

AeroCamp is for grades 6-12 and each camper will receive multiple simulator/flight lessons. View our photo album to see the many types of activities that may be available during each of the camps. Activities, tours, flights and field trips will vary for each camp depending on weather and availability of tours.

Our Aero Camp satisfies the requirements for the Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge.
For those scouts who have a desire to pursue this special merit badge, our camp is for you.

Included with the registration fee, students will receive a logbook, First Flight Certificate, Aero Camp Tee Shirt, a Six month subscription to AOPA’s Flight Training Magazine, an Aero Camp Graduation Certificate and a $50.00 gift certificate off a future Introductory Flight Lesson. Snacks, juice and water will be provided daily as well as a pizza lunch on Graduation Day. Campers are asked to bring their own lunch (in externally marked insulated bags) on the remaining days.

Camp runs Mon-Fri, 9am-3pm. Covid cleaning and safety procedures will be followed.

We will be offering two ALPHA camps this summer for students in grades 6-12. There will be no Bravo Camps. Due to rising costs and industry-related delays, there will be a few changes to this year camps.

  1. All campers will receive one voucher to use for the flight time usually earned during camp (not to exceed 1.5 hours). Students in the first camp will be able to use their voucher from May 1, 2023, through July 15, 2023.  Students in the second camp will be able to use their voucher from July 16, 2023, through September 30, 2023. While we understand some campers travel from distances that are not local to Long Island, we can plan for some flight vouchers to be used after the camp day ends.  No flights will take place during camp.  Vouchers will be provided upon full payment for camp and may be used at either of our locations.
  2. We will not be able to offer optional flights this year as we have done in years past. While we know this is a popular portion of our camp, we want to make sure we can accomplish all flights as much as possible and the same high quality you have come to expect from us.  With the ever-rising costs and industry-related delays, we cannot guarantee these for this summer.  Anyone interested in taking an additional flight lesson after camp with our CFIs may contact our front desks and do so.  Please identify that your child was one of our campers this year so that we can ensure we schedule you properly.  The Manhattan – Hudson River flight though would not be able to be done as a lesson this year.

Camp REGISTRATION opens February 1st 2023, for previous campers and February 15, 2023 for new campers.  You can email after that date to reserve a space prior to mailing camp documents and payment. Camp space will be confirmed when complete registration documents and payment are received.
