Mazzei Flying Service was established in 1936 in Fresno, California, by a pioneer in California aviation, Mr. Fred Mazzei. Training in first generation airplanes, he began a school that has spanned eight decades of aviation history.
At Mazzei, they teach students to fly any plane or any helicopter using a method of flight training called "Attitude Flying.” Attitude flying is an advanced flying technique used by professional pilots and the military and uses outside references rather than instrument references as the primary source of information. This unique approach to teaching emphasizes precision aircraft control from the first lesson, enabling students to progress quickly and transition easily from one aircraft to another.
From the day it opened, Mazzei has been committed to excellence, quality, and safety in flight training.
