If I had a flying speed due to being Aarakocra or having fly cast on me, would I be able to use misty step to teleport to midair rather than staying on the ground?

Yes, so long as you can see it

The description of misty step (PHB, pg. 260) says:

Briefly surrounded by silvery mist, you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.

So long as you can see the point in the air that you wish to teleport to (and it's no more than 30 feet away from you) you should be able to teleport up to it, and your flight speed from being an Aarakocra or from being affected by fly should keep you in midair.

Anyone can Misty Step into midair.

Misty step just says:

Briefly surrounded by silvery mist, you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.

Nothing in the spell says that space has to be on the ground.

Yes. The Misty Step Does What the Description States

As long as the space is within range, unoccupied, and you can see it, it is a valid misty step destination. Flying does not matter.

you teleport up to 30 feet to an unoccupied space that you can see.
