$99 for 75-Minute Adventure Flight ($225 Value)

FAA-certified flight instructors guide aspiring aviators through an adventure flight that starts with preflight safety checks before students take to the skies to receive hands-on piloting experience. Students also receive a first-flight certificate, an emailed commemorative photo, and a magazine subscription. The in-flight experiences take students soaring over the east end of Long Island with views of the Hamptons and the shoreline.

Mid Island Air Service

Since its founding in 1946 by Louis Mancuso, a flying instructor for the British Royal Air Force, Mid Island Air Service has graduated more than 5,000 pilots from its flight school. Its flock of FAA-certified flight instructors imparts the aeronautic knowledge and pixie dust required to achieve a number of certifications, from private to commercial-instrument to sport pilot. Based out of both Brookhaven and Long Island MacArthur Airports, Mid Island boasts a combined hangar space of nearly 200,000 square feet, enough to provide FBO services to small-aircraft owners alongside its own stable of training and rental aircraft.

Extraordinary "bucket list" opportunities, such as skydiving and helicopter tours
