  Airport Back to Top

As a Fixed Base Operator (FBO) located at North Perry Airport (KHWO) in Hollywood, Florida, Pelican Flight Training has direct access to Orlando, Tampa and the Florida Keys via Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike. Situated in South Florida, our location provides prime weather conditions conducive for flying. In addition, only 50 miles off the east coast lie the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. Our premises are at equal distance from Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

North Perry Airport is one of three training airports in the Miami/ Fort Lauderdale region. It is equipped with four paved, lighted runways, the longest at 3,350 feet. It is an excellent training facility, providing the student with continuous practice in the use of ATC and radio procedures. In addition, our location allows miles of uncluttered airspace to the west in which to practice maneuvers.

  Maintenance Back to Top

Pelican Flight Training operates its own maintenance servicing system out of 14,000 square feet of maintenance facilities overseen by Federal Aviation Administration.
