Accelerated Commercial Pilot RatingStudents who come to Paragon Flight for commercial flight training may pursue either single-engine or multi-engine training. We offer the right equipment for all our training; none of our students have to travel elsewhere to log the needed flight hours. For primary flight training, we house the Piper PA28 “Pilot” and the PA-44 Seminole, and for specialty training, we offer the Cirrus SR20 and the ALSIM Flight Simulator.

Training at Paragon Flight can be significantly faster than at other flight schools. We offer the P3 Professional Pilot Program that facilitates the promotion of candidates from zero experience to commercial pilot status with flight instructor credentials in fewer than ten months!

Consider the following schedule:

0-10 Weeks – Private Pilot License (PPL) – foundational phase to develop solid habits for all future instruction;

11-18 Weeks – Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – a supplemental added to private pilot certification, this rating allows pilots to fly in various conditions, using navigational and communication equipment;

19-30 Weeks – Commercial License, Single-Engine and Multi-Engine (CSEL/CMEL) – a certification that permits pilots to perform for compensation, hauling cargo or transporting passengers;

31-38 Weeks – Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – The last phase of the program allows commercial pilots to train pilot candidates. If you’re interested in pursuing further credentials and need to log flight time, this certification is ideal since you can make a living and earn logged flight hours.

Our flight training is based on the Jeppesen curriculum, which we are proud to utilize. Jeppesen is a subsidiary of Boeing and an aviation master.
