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.

There are two camp options: AeroCamp Bravo and AeroCamp Alpha. Bravo is for future pilots in grades 6-8. This is the entry-level camp and each camper will receive a simulator and aircraft flight. AeroCamp Alpha is for grades 9-12 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 Registration for 2021 programs is now open.  Camp runs Mon-Fri, 9am-3pm.  Covid cleaning and safety procedures will be followed.  Masks will be worn by all participants with social distancing during meals.

ATA101 is an Advanced Flight Training Academy open by application to campers who have taken a minimum of two camps (at least one Alpha) and/or have about 5 hours of flight time.  This is not Camp and does not include tours or speakers.  It is a more intense training program with a minimum of 2 hours of ground school daily, one hour flight, one hour observation and 30 minutes simulator time daily for students who have an interest in pursuing flight training.  As we do not begin at lesson ONE, advanced knowledge is necessary and an admissions test will be given as part of the application. A textbook is issued and assignments will be given prior to the first date of the academy. Tentatively scheduled for Aug 23-27.  Best 3 of 5 days 9-2:30.  Must be available for all five days for flight flexibility $1149

Payment is due in full at registration for camp and optional flight day. See information regarding cancelation policies.  A $100 camp insurance policy is available for any cancellation that is due to a medical reason, see details in registration docs.
