Airline Pilot School Seattle
A significant part of airline pilot school is the requirement to log a minimum of 1,500 flight hours, but Seattle is definitely not conducive to frequent time in the air. Travel to Fort Myers, FL for beautiful weather all year round and for Paragon Flight’s masterful programs to accomplish your goals much faster and more affordably.
Becoming an airline pilot will be the ultimate fulfillment of your life’s ambitions.
The catalog of training we offer ranges from private and commercial pilot certificates to instrument flight ratings, Certified Flight Instructor training, multi-engine rating, and Airline Transport Pilot certification. The individualized course that we provide will allow you to complete training in a way that works with your schedule, lifestyle, and budget.
Paragon Flight’s Fleet
The fleet of aircraft at Paragon Flight is outfitted with advanced technology and avionics, and the fleet includes aircraft that will complement all of the programs that we offer. Aircraft models include the Cessna C172S Skyhawk, Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, Cessna T182T Skylane, Cirrus SR20 G6, Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and the ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator.
Feel confident in the safety and suitability of the aircraft that we provide.
We maintain all of our planes to FAA-mandated standards and provide plenty of opportunities for those in pursuit of an airline pilot position to log the required 1,500 flight hours.
The Paragon Flight Environment
The weather in Fort Myers, where Paragon Flight’s home in Page Field is located, welcomes takeoff more than 350 days of the year. This beautiful weather paired with a tower-controlled airport and nearby practice fields creates an ideal setup to maximize time in the air.
The AOPA, or Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, is a trusted advocate for aviation enthusiasts and professionals, and this organization has repeatedly lauded Paragon Flight for the quality of our instructors and overall flight training programs.
The Authority and Governance of Paragon Flight
The flight instruction offered by Paragon Flight relies on Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 61 and 141 for governance. Part 61 permits modification of pacing and format while Part 141 regulations require strict adherence to the prescribed curriculum and schedule.
The Part 61 authorization allows us to create accelerated, compressed programs with flexibility to accommodate occupational, family, and other obligations. This program has more rigorous practical requirements because of the laxness of the other training components.
The Part 141 authorization, on the other hand, requires full-time attendance but permits students to use financial aid, GI funds, or an M-1 student visa. Because of the stricter training requirements, the flight hours demanded are fewer than Part 61 flight schools.
Continue on your aviation journey with additional certificates and supplemental ratings as your career progression requires. Even after becoming an airline pilot, you’ll need to qualify on each additional aircraft that you fly.
The Flight Instructors and Instruction Materials
In a world of ideal flight conditions, you can expect to find a richness of pilots, most of them Certified Flight Instructors. We leverage this wealth to hire the absolute best flight instructors available and offer our student-pilots a best-fit instructor pairing.
Airline pilot school at Paragon Flight can be a life-changing experience. We welcome you to reach out to qualify through a pre assessment as a candidate for becoming a pilot, and we’ll create a personalized program to become licensed and complete the required flight hours in less time and with less money.
