Pilots Stories

The engine is the heart of a helicopter, but the pilot is its soul

We want to tell you a good story, indeed many beautiful stories of pilots who grew up or who have spent several years of their career in Italfly: someone is now instructor in Italfly Academy, others became pilots of airlines and deals with public transport, some perform aerial work and others became pilots of the rescue...

I studied in Italfly and today I am instructor in the Academy.
Since I was a child I dreamed to fly and now I can also teach you to do so.
Italfly for me is not just work, it's part of my life!

Francesco Baroni, Italfly Instructor

Italfly was the beginning of my training: I was part of the 1st ATPL course in Italfly and since there I never stopped.
After being in Africa making air control of the oil pipelines, then I worked in Air Walser doing geomagnetic surveys and today I am a working pilot.

From the hotelerie to the world of flight, I was born into a family of hoteliers but since I was a child I dreamed of flying.
During my training in Italfly I was devided between the hotel kitchen and flight hours, which even today I do when I get home in Trentino!
After earning a commercial pilot license, I had the opportunity to discover Africa doing Geomagnetic surveys piloting a Lama, after that I made a season as a pilot to fire fighting core, then I started working in a company that carries out aerial work in Abudabi, this is my job now.

Anna Mazzi, INAER Aviation Pilot

I grew up in Italfly but I think that this sentence does not make the whole idea of the time that I spent in the hangar initially, then in the classrooms, on flight, to finally get to sit at the desk sometimes:
from apprentice mechanic to pilot, from instructor in the academy to CEO of Italfly.
For the future? Keep an eye on Italfly, you will hear about our Academy for a long time!

Luca Nabacino, CEO Italfly

I was born in the mountains of Val d'Ossola, I grew up listening to the unmistakable sound of the "Lama" and with a great passion for helicopters, so I began at first with the radio-controlled helicopters and then I decided to get the private pilot license in Milan.
The passion for this world has led me to move oversea, in California, where I obtained the commercial pilot license and I worked doing traffic control for radio in Los Angeles.
Back in Italy I got the Italian commercial license in Italfly, where I then worked as a pilot of aerial photography and later as Academy instructor.
After the experience in Italfly I worked as a corporate pilot and aerial work; since 2008 I am an helicopter pilot of the Province of Trento and aI am happy to be part of a team of true professionals.
