Airline Pilot School St. Petersburg
The pull to become a pilot deserves an answer. Paragon Flight is a preeminent airline pilot school a short two-hour drive from St. Petersburg at Page Field in Fort Myers, FL.
An airline pilot will need a commercial pilot license in order to provide aviation services as a professional. No payment can be accepted for pilot services without a commercial pilot license. Earning this license is one critical step in the journey toward employment as the captain or co-captain of an airliner.
Page Field in Fort Myers is the general aviation hub of Southwest Florida and happens to be the home of Paragon Flight. Our location allows us to provide the best opportunities to accrue flight hours and find accommodations that work for your tastes and budget. The weather here allows planes to take off without disruption over 350 days of the year.
The elements we provide are similarly programmed to suit affordability, speed, and quality training. We recognize the importance of the flight school to the success of your career, and we hold ourselves to rigorous standards of individual personalization and instruction.
The facilities and aircraft here are impeccable. The aircraft are well-kept, outfitted with Glass Cockpit Technology, and qualified as Technically Advanced Aircraft. To facilitate all of the training we offer, we house Cessna C172S Skyhawk, Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, Cessna T182T Skylane, Cirrus SR20 G6, Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator for these purposes.
The Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) are similarly excellent. The opportunities to fly and the beautiful views from the sky draw pilots of all backgrounds and experiences to Florida, and we take advantage of the vast selection by choosing the best available to include within our staff. Come to Paragon Flight for a best-fit match of instructor to student.
The Jeppesen curriculum, produced by the Boeing company, is proven to help students complete training 30% faster than the national average, and we’re proud to use it at Paragon Flight.
Plan Your Way to the Cockpit
All professional pilots require a commercial license, but all professional pilots aren’t qualified to fly airliners. Pilots’ roles are numerous and diverse. Whether you plan to reach the heights of the International Space Station or provide local farmers with crop dusting services, it all begins with a commercial pilots license.
Paragon Flight will begin your own experience as we do all others, with a consultation. During a conversation with our Head Flight Instructor, we will map out your goal-meeting journey based upon your own learning style, lifestyle, occupational and family demands, budget, and prior experience.
We offer a comprehensive catalog of courses to fully prepare you for service as an airline pilot. These courses include Private Pilot License (PPL), Commercial Pilot License (CPL), Multi-Engine Rating, Instrument Rating, and Certified Flight Instructor (CFI/CFII/MEI). You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to log the 1,500 flight hours needed to become a certified Airline Transport Pilot.
