POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
(Updated February 2020)
I have read, reviewed and agree to the Wings and Rotors Academy Policies and Procedures.
At Wings and Rotors Academy we are dedicated to the safety of our students and staff. Our instructors and staff are not unaware of the inherent dangers operating around airplanes, and heavy equipment. Therefore, we ask that you review our policies thoroughly with your child as we will be doing the same.
PICK UP AND DROP OFF POLICY All students (regardless of age) are required to be physically signed in and signed out inside the building at our front desk. There will be NO curbside pickup. Identification may be required for parents/guardians prior to release of children. We understand that this is not always convenient, but this is for the safety of your children, our staff, and the security of the airport. As a reminder, we are a DROP-OFF facility.
REGISTRATION/PAYMENT Registration MUST be completed and payments made in full prior to class day. We accept CASH, CHECK, VENMO, on registration days and VISA/MASTERCARD/PAYPAL on our website www.wingsandrotorsacademy.com. There will be NO walk‐ins or same day sign ups. Limited spots reserved. *Charter School families: WE MUST RECEIVE Purchase Order prior or by first class date.
EARLY AND LATE DROP OFF/ PICK UP Wings and Rotors Academy doors will open 10 minutes prior to class start. Please DO NOT drop your child(ren) off outside our building. We ask that you promptly pick up your child(ren) at the conclusion of workshops. You are welcome to arrive 10 minutes early for pickup and observe all the fun things your child(ren) will be learning. However, if you are running late, please notify our staff via phone. We understand “things happen” and extend a 10‐15 minute “grace period.” Unfortunately, AFTER 15 minutes, if you have not arrived we will begin charging $5 every 10 minutes/per child.
CLASS CANCELLATIONS/ REFUNDS At Wings and Rotors Academy we keep our student to staff ratios 1:5 or 1:6 respectively to offer each student the individual attention they deserve. That said, we reserve the right to cancel any class once they have reached capacity or not. In the rare event a class is rescheduled /cancelled you will receive advanced notice via phone/text/email and a FULL refund, if payment has already been transacted.
WITHDRAWL/MAKEUP POLICY Unfortunately, we DO NOT offer Makeup classes. If your child needs to be rescheduled due to illness, family emergency, etc. please contact our staff asap for arrangements. We require a minimum 3 ‐day notification for cancellations due to high demand wait lists. We reserve the right to charge 100% of class tuition for no shows.
BEHAVIOR classes are rarely quiet or neat. Quite the opposite as a matter of fact. However, CHARACTER COUNTS. We consider it a privilege to host our academy at a working flight school and we hope your child feels and treat it the same. We have a simple “3 Strikes You’re Out” policy. Any student found to be continually disruptive, rude and/or not abiding by our policies will be given a 1st and 2nd verbal warning by staff, 3rd parents will be notified to pick up student(s). No exceptions. Any behavior that warrants immediate removal is at our discretion for the safety of our students and staff.
SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES/NEEDS If you’re student requires specific medical equipment, medications or has special education needs of ANY kind, notification MUST be made and approved prior to enrollment. We do our best to accommodate a diversity of student participants where and when we can.
ATTIRE Effective February 1st 2020 students are REQUIRED to wear their issued Wings and Rotors Academy Polo uniform shirt while attending classes. In our effort to create an upstanding academy while functioning as an active flight school we appreciate your cooperation as we encourage professionalism and discipline in aviation related career fields.
Weather: The temperature in our hangar vs. offices can vary significantly. Please ensure your child is dressed accordingly. Closed toe shoes are required while working in the hangar. Students are given a 5-minute break between stations and a short lunch period on varying classes. Please provide WATER for your child.
Any and all flight training are subject to weather. An instructor will contact you as soon as practical to reschedule.
FLIGHTS Flight Training at Wings and Rotors Academy is offered but NOT required in order to participate in our GROUND BASED classes or workshops. Once your order AND payment or purchase order are received “we” we notify you to schedule at flight date. All flights are subject to weather and rescheduling at the discretion of the instructor. Unfortunately, there are NO makeups for NO shows. Purchased flights MUST BE REEDMED within 60 days.
