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.
