It would be fighting type. The move is a fighting type move, it just has the effect of both Fighting and Flying. Here is it's description:

Flying Press deals damage. It is a Fighting type move, but deals a combination of Fighting and Flying type damage.

Hope this answers your question!

Despite being a Fighting-type move, the damage dealt is actually a combination of Fighting and Flying types, and thus its effectiveness against a given Pokémon differs from other Fighting-type moves.

In a way, you could say that moves now have Primary typings. Flying Press' primary typing is Fighting, so the user would most likely become a Fighting type

Those 4 seconds though
lol and our answers pretty much the same!
