Mission Statement:

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 (must be completed with 6th grade) and each camper will receive a simulator and a flight lesson. View our photo album to see the many types of activities that may be available during each of the camps. Activities, tours, 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, 8:45am-3pm. Covid cleaning and safety procedures will be followed.

We will be offering two Aero Camps this summer for students into grades 7-12. Due to rising costs and industry-related delays, all campers will receive a flight voucher to be used outside of camp (not to exceed 1.5 hours).

Students in the first camp will be able to use their voucher from May 1st through July 31st. As the second camp will be able to use their voucher from July 1st through September 30th. While we understand some campers travel from distances that are not local to Long Island, we can do our best to accommodate some flight vouchers to be used after the camp day ends. Vouchers will be mailed about a month prior to their scheduling period.

Camp REGISTRATION opens February 1st, you can email after that date to reserve a space prior to mailing camp documents and payment.  Camp space will not be confirmed until complete registration documents and full payment are received.

 2024 Camp Dates; Alpha Camp $1999:
