$145 for 90-Minute Introductory Flight Lesson and Experience ($320 Value)

FAA-certified flight instructors guide aspiring aviators through an introductory flight experience that begins with a private lesson in the Redbird FMX full-motion flight simulator. Students practice basic flight functions, such as level flight, climbs, and turns, before taking to the air in a Cessna 172R Skyhawk. The in-flight portion of the experience takes students soaring over the north or shore shore of Long Island to a practice area. Students also receive a first-flight certificate, an emailed commemorative photo, and a six-month magazine subscription.

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.
