1. Standardization of your previous flight training and experience.

The traditional approach for flight training at a Part 141 school is divided into one of two options: Train all pilots using your procedures and standards, or accept a variety of different training cultures and standards utilized were someone else trained. Training to Pelican’s standards allows us to better control the quality of our flight training. All activities at Pelican Flight Training are standardized in order to perform all maneuvers and procedures in the same and safest manner by instructors and students alike. This approach to standardization requires experienced instructors, and many other valuable resources.

Newly arriving students trained at another school can be best served by, initially standardizing those new students to Pelicans Flight Training procedures, performance and accreditation performance standards, thus optimizing overall required training time and at the same time maximizing use of all our training resources.
