Huffman Aviation was established in 1972 as Venice Flying Service, and was reorganized in 1987 and renamed as Huffman Aviation.[1] Huffman Aviation was purchased by Dutchman Rudi Dekkers in 1999.[2] At the time of purchase, the school had a fleet of 12 small aircraft.[2] Huffman offered private pilot, instrument rating, Commercial pilot, Multi-Engine Ratings and flight instructor training, but did not offer training on larger, jet aircraft.[3] More than 80% of the school's students were foreign nationals, following a marketing campaign designed to attract overseas students.[1]


Both Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi attended the school, purportedly in order to learn how to fly small aircraft. According to the 9/11 official narrative, this enabled them to fly the larger planes used on that day.

Drug trafficking

Huffman Aviation has various ties to both the CIA and to drug trafficking.[4][5]
