Paragon Flight Training Co. is a nationally and internationally-recognized flight academy located in Fort Myers Florida, USA. We offer FAA approved Part 141 and Part 61 flight training courses for domestic and international students who want to fly for recreation or as a profession.

Paragon Flight has been training pilots since 2006, providing all of their courses in Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and avionics.

Today, Paragon operates a large fleet of “primary training” aircraft consisting entirely of “glass cockpit” Garmin G1000 avionics equipped Cessna C172S Skyhawks.

In addition to C172 aircraft, Paragon offers every modern-day model of Cessna single engine piston aircraft including the Cessna TTX, Cessna 182 and 206. Cirrus SR22 and SR20 models are offered for advanced training with Piper PA-44 Seminoles for multi-engine training.

Paragon also offers FAA Level 5 FTD ALSIM AL172 training devices. Configured exactly as our standardized fleet of C172’s, the AL172 is a high-realism Cessna C172 flight simulator that allows students to obtain flight proficiency at a much higher rate than training in the aircraft alone.

Ultimately, flying is about fun, freedom, and adventure, and the world of aviation provides vast opportunities. At Paragon Flight, we make it our mission to ensure you are comfortable and confident, so you can have fun while learning to fly at any level.
