Hi!

I'm only a sim pilot and I live in the UK but I did a search on Airnav (which you've probably done).

http://www.airnav.com/airport/KMCD/

It says there is no flight school but it does say there are two single engine planes based on the airport there. How old this info is I don't know but if there are planes there there is always the possibility of asking one of the owners if you can go up with them (I'm guessing you won't be able to rent off a private owner because of insurance).

Looks like a really nice place. Have a good trip!

Thanks for the reply. Yes, that's what found too. I will be just as happy to fly as a passenger if I will not be able to effect a rental all for myself. So any contacts anyone can provide are welcome.

It lists 5 aircraft on the island and has the owners names and addresses but unfortunately not email or telephone numbers. I'm not sure how up to date the info is or if you can find there emails online or something.

Hope it might help.

Your best bet might be Great Lakes Air in St. Ignace just about a 5 minute hop from the island by air. They might be able to steer you in the right direction.
