Operating under current management and ownership since 1977, Mazzei Flying Service teaches students to fly using one flight training principle: "Does it work in any airplane or helicopter, and will it work well in all situations?” For a look at the school’s unique training technique, please visit the website and click on “About Mazzei”.
School provided housing is available to all students training at Mazzei Flying Service. Student housing consists of furnished two bedroom apartments with either one or two students per bedroom, or private one bedroom apartments. The apartment complex is nestled in the center of an 18-hole public golf course and conveniently located just to the north of the Fresno Air Terminal.
Mazzei Flying Service is FAA Approved from Private through Commercial /Flight Instructor for both airplane and helicopter. The school operates under Federal Air Regulations Part 141 which requires: an approved flight training syllabus for each course, instructor standardization, supervision and stage checks by the Chief or Assistant Chief Flight Instructor, and regular FAA inspections of school facilities, aircraft, simulators and training devices, as well as student training records, and instructor records.
Because of the outstanding performance of the school’s graduates, Mazzei Flying Service is one of very few FAA Approved Pilot Schools in the U.S. that has Examining Authority Approval. This special FAA Approval allows the school to graduate and certificate their students in certain courses without the added burden and expense of having to take a practical test with an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner. In other words, all you need to do is complete your training and graduate and you will automatically be issued your certificate or rating without further testing. This added benefit saves students both time and money.
Our California location is one of the big advantages of flight training with MFS! During both summer and winter, realistic IFR conditions exist within the state, and there are 14,000' mountains and both coastal and desert regions in which to train. Additionally, there are opportunities during your flight training to fly extended cross-country to such destinations as Las Vegas, Reno, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
“Flight Schedule Pro has organized our entire dispatch area. It has cut down dramatically on our scheduling errors as well as allowed us to more effectively communicate with our customers. We are extremely happy with the service and can’t imagine scheduling without it.”
