Why do most aviation enthusiasts forego fight training? A lack of financial resources is too often the cause of unfulfilled aviation dreams. Paragon Flight has a long history, which has allowed us to become familiar with the various resources available and contacts within the industry that can benefit our students, including personal lenders who specialize in supporting the goals of future pilots. We’re able to help you as you work through the complications of identifying appropriate resources, applying for them, and securing financing for your training.
