Students from the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Suffolk Aviation Academy (SAA) in Shirley participated in a four-week job shadowing experience at Mid Island Air Service, Inc. at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma. Second-year students in Lou Ballester's Aviation/Professional Pilot Training program received one-on-one instruction in flight dispatching, line maintenance, aviation repair, and company management. Employees at Mid Island hosted students under the direction of Gail Jensen, general manager. Mid Island Air Service has been providing flight instruction, training, aircraft rentals, sales, and maintenance since 1946. The job shadow experience was made possible by Rosaria Broesler, work experience coordinator at SAA. She said, "Job shadowing offers students the opportunity to spend time with professionals in their field of interest. Students get to see what it's like working in a specific job."
