The unique combination of:

  1. More than 65 years experience of Riga Aeronavigation Institute, one of the best and well known Aviation Training Educational Institutes (University) in the Eastern Europe and Former Soviet Union Region, with more than 40 thousand graduates working in each area of aviation industry in more than 50 countries.
  2. Captain T.A. Fensome, President and CEO of Pelican Flight Training is a former airline captain and airline president. He is acutely aware of the importance of professional pilot training using airline methodology from the very first training period.
  3. Pelican Flight Training is situated in Florida, where the climate is the one of the most sought after in the entire United States. This allows for flight training 12 months of the year.

allow our professional training programs be the best suited to match the needs and demands of both individual pilots and airline companies. Our students are trained up to and beyond standards required by the FAA and JAA, with airline careers in mind, and with crew concept part of the curriculum. We believe that a pilot going through our program from zero experience to CPL/ATPL, with the possibility of a jet transition course and type rating either in our partner simulator center or in the airline training centers, is more than suitable for entry into the airline system.
