I just wanted to tell everyone that I only discovered this site about 2 weeks ago, but it is absolutely great. I just wanted to tell you guys my "master plan", and see if anyone has any suggestions or comments. Right now I am currently in the Navy (enlisted) stationed at Point Mugu, CA. July of next year, I am planning on re-enlisted for 3 years and moving up to Lemoore, CA. I found a flight school in Fresno that really looks good. It is Mazzei Flying Service. Has anyone heard anything good or bad about it. I am planning on becoming a professional pilot, via the Flight Instructor route, and this school looks like it has a really good CFI/Multi-engine program. Let me know what you think. Also, any pilots in the Camarillo area that wouldn't mind taking me for a ride, I would love to hear from you, because as Doug says, "Network, network, network!!!"
