If I have the following sentence:
"In mid-August, Gignac flew with Soffer on his private jet to Aspen to discuss the hotel purchase."
Focusing in on the "In mid-August," part in terms of its form, would that be better classified as an adverb phrase due to its being an element of time or a prepositional phrase due to its being introducted by the preposition "In" ?

This phrase is both prepositional and adverbial. Some prepositional phrases are adverbial. Such as "In the morning" or "In the middle of the night."
