Mastery Flight Training began in 1994 to provide type-specific initial and recurrent flight training at the customer's location. Although MFT still provides this service, the company has grown to include on-site pilot education presentations and publication in several aviation periodicals. Since 2007 MFT has published its free weekly FLYING LESSONS e-newsletter, which is now read by thousands of pilots around the world, including individual pilots, instructors and aviation education institutions, insurance underwriters, and safety investigators and regulators in several countries.
