About us

Our mission, since we were founded in 1985, has been to deliver a high-quality program for our students which enables them to thrive within the Aviation Industry. Keeping this goal for our students as our driving force is what has allowed us to keep growing as a company through all the significant changes that flight training schools have seen for more than 35 years.

Our motto is: “The best safety device in any aircraft is a well-trained pilot!”

Why You Should learn to Fly in South Florida

We chose to base our operations in South Florida due to the moderate climate. Which has consistent wind patterns that makes the area one of the best places in the world to start your flight career. There is more flying time and less waiting for weather to clear frustrations. In Florida their are 350 days available for training.

We are a Fixed-Base operator out of North Perry Airport in Hollywood, Florida which has four lit, paved runways (with the longest coming in at 3,350 feet/1,021 meters). This provides our students with multiple benefits. Logistically, we are equidistant between Miami International Airport (MIA), Opa-Locka International Airport (OPF), and Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL). Giving our students easy access to our facility – no matter where they are coming from around the world.

Pelican Flight school is a bilingual school, as our students learn in an English speaking environment, and we do have many Spanish speaking instructors and pilots.

North Perry, being a tower airport offers a variety of services. Furthermore, the special training zone that our location enjoys is the Florida Everglades. That offers a quiet flight environment but still at the vicinity of busy airspace. Making our location combined with the winds are predominantly west-east or east-west; gives us consistently ample air space to operate in. While also providing our students with invaluable experience. Being able to operate in a major metropolitan area with multiple busy airports . Being here will make you a better pilot- apart from taking part in the best professional and climate environment in the world!
