Airline Pilot School Miami
Make work fun by becoming an airline pilot through training with Paragon Flight in Fort Myers, a short trip from Miami. We provide custom training programs for pilots at all stages, with all schedules, and with all goals!
Paragon Flight is one of the leading aviation training institutions in the United States. Our location and standards provide us with a leg up against all competition. Every step of training needed for an airline pilot is available here at Paragon Flight.
Page Field in Fort Myers, FL, is the perfect home for flight training. The airport is the aviation hub of Southwest Florida with a control-towered runway and several practice airfields in the local area. We’re near several metropolitan locations including Orlando, Miami, and more. Further, the weather here permits flight time over 350 days of the year, especially useful for those working to accrue flight time.
The dual authorizations that we have at Paragon Flight allow us to meet the needs of every student-pilot who qualifies for training. The FAA authorizes flight schools under Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 61 and 141, so we’re able to provide strictly structured instruction as well as training with greater flexibility for candidates who have to carve out time from a schedule filled with work and family obligations.
In this manner, our custom programs place the student-pilot as the center of our training.
Preparing to Fly for an Airline
Airline pilots require substantial training and experience with good reason. These pilots are responsible for hundreds of lives at a time. The program that you pursue will depend on where you begin, but at the entry level, a private pilot license is the beginning step.
With a private pilot license and an instrument rating, you’ll be well-prepared for flight in a variety of circumstances, but to accept any form of compensation for your services, you must continue to earn a commercial pilot license.
With a commercial pilot license in hand, consider earning a Certified Flight Instructor certificate. Airline pilots require training as an Airline Transport Pilot along with 1,500 documented flight hours, and time spent training future pilots count toward these hours while earning cash.
Path toward Commercial Pilot Licensing
- Earn a Private Pilot License (PPL)
- Qualify for a 1st or 2nd Class Medical Certificate and secure it from the FAA (must be current)
- Be 18 years of age
- Be fluent and literate in the English language
- Earn an Instrument Flight Rating
- Participate in the required ground and practical instruction
- Log 100 hours as Pilot-in-Command (PIC)
- Log 250 TOTAL hours in flight
- Pass the written exam
- Pass the oral and practical checkride administered by an FAA examiner
The training here at Paragon Flight comes at the hands of some of the best Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) in the world. As mentioned earlier, the weather is perfect for flight time, so pilots flock to the area, and we pick the best among them to train our students.
We also provide the best aircraft for training. Equipped with Glass Cockpit technology and advanced avionics, our entire fleet qualifies as being Technically Advanced. Within the fleet, you’ll find single- and multi-engine aircraft as well as sporting planes and a top-of-the-line simulator.
