Whether in the cockpit of a plane or behind the yoke of a helicopter, Pelican Flight Training's FAA-certified instructors lead pilot-training programs for both vocational and non-vocational purposes. Currently, the school has former students flying in 83 countries across the globe. Before they took to the skies, though, those men and women honed their skills at North Perry Airport, Pelican's main base, which offers miles of open airspace to practice maneuvers and make out-of-shape planes do sprints. For ground training, students study inside Pelican's multi-use facility where instructors lead lessons inside briefing and classroom areas and utilize high-tech equipment, including a weather radar, Alsim ALX 19 flight simulator, and FLYIT helicopter simulator.
Learning is a four-step process at Tutor Doctor. Before students are matched with a tutor, they work with a consultant to devise realistic goals and a plan for reaching those goals. Then they are matched with a tutor based on compatibility in terms of learning style, academic needs, and even personality. It's only then that the tutor and student meet to work on any of a large pool of subjects, from English, math, and science to test prep or college coursework. After sessions, tutors report on progress to parents via email.
