That's not to say they're not legitimate concerns, or that DSLRs aren't better in many ways, but one's perspective definitely depends on what kind of equipment you've used in the past.

There are two types of mirrorless cameras: APS-C (same sensor size as many DSLRs) and micro four-thirds (pioneered by Panasonic/Olympus).

I am a Nikon user and can advise only on Nikon DSLR.
As a starter mid-priced I would suggest you to get Nikon D3300 with 18-105mm lens for wide shots and Sigma 100-400mm Contemporary lens.[150-600mm on Nikon D3300]
You do not need all that extra buttons for aviation photography. Basically you'll be playing with exposure compensation and ISO settings. We all mostly shoot at f8.
Nikon D3300 is a great DSLR with smart and fast processor Expeed 4 and great sensor which gives very clean and detailed images.
Cameras go, lenses stay. You may mount you Sigma to higher grade crop Nikon DSLR as D500 or even full frame as Nikon D610, D750, D800, D810 etc.
