Paragon Flight is proud to be the premier authorized Cirrus Training Center (CTC) in Southwest Florida. Cirrus Aircraft are known around the world for their high quality standards, impeccable safety record and dedication to giving an amazing customer service experience. With that said, it’s no wonder Paragon and Cirrus make sure a great team.

Paragon Flight Training is part of Cirrus’ global network of Cirrus Training Centers (CTCs) and Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilots (CSIPs) are experts in Cirrus flight training. Cirrus Training Centers will have a Cirrus aircraft available for rental and flight instruction along with professional flight instructors to put you on the right path of your Cirrus pilot education. Once you are ready to make the jump to aircraft ownership, Paragon will be able to manage your aircraft and potentially place it on their flight line to offset some or all of your operational costs.

There are many ways to begin your flying journey with Paragon and Cirrus. Any may be the right one for you depending on your personal situation.


If your goal is to someday own your own airplane, this may be the best option for you. Learning to fly in your own airplane will make the experience easier, safer, and potentially more economical than renting. You won’t have to worry about scheduling conflicts, rental fees and procedures, and the variability of aircraft you may fly. You may also lease your aircraft back to Paragon to offset some or even all of your operational costs – essentially “flying for free.”


For those who wish to realize the great utility and benefit of personal aviation from day 1, Cirrus and our partners offer flight training programs that integrate learning to fly with your personal and business trips. If you are a non-pilot and wish to begin your training as you fly for business or pleasure, this program may be the perfect fit. Using our state of the art Access to Flight training curriculum, your training will flow seamlessly through your Private Pilot License and Instrument Rating all while you are using your Cirrus for business or pleasure from the start.

Cirrus’s second-to-none training systems and aircraft combined with the award winning team at Paragon will make your training experience memorable for all the right reasons.
