Airline Pilot Training in Michigan
For expedited airline pilot training during any season, leave the cold, snowy Michigan environment and travel down to Florida. At Paragon Flight, you’ll find a unique Professional Pilot Program offering greater timeliness and affordability than comparable programs.
Paragon Flight and the Professional Pilot Program (P3)
Paragon Flight is a FAR Part 61 and 141 flight school, accommodating students with part-time and full-time availability. Within our programs, the P3 Professional Pilot Program allows ambitious pilot candidates to surge from zero experience to commercial pilot licensing and flight instructor certification within 38 short weeks. This accelerated course requires full-time availability and a strong drive to succeed.
Providing the shorter timeline and lower fees that this program costs requires us to streamline the process, focusing on quality over quantity, assisting with financing acquisition, and helping develop the essential leadership skills that a good pilot needs.
Paragon Flight and the Benefits of a Florida Setting
You may doubt that traveling to Florida would be worth it when you can easily find a flight school closer to home. In addition to the incentive of shorter and cheaper training, we offer all of the benefits of a Florida setting.
First, Florida offers pilots flight-friendly weather all year long. No matter the season, you will surely have a good day for flight practice. Once you’re in the skies, be prepared for life-altering views. The majesty of the area can’t be described in words, and by training here, you’ll be able to see it from the vantage point of the cockpit.
As a pilot mecca, Paragon Flight has no shortage of well-qualified, diversely trained flight instructors. We can take advantage of the impressive applicant pool to provide our students with the best flight instructors in the world. We also supply the Jeppesen curriculum and the best Technically Advanced Aircraft for training.
If you’d like to participate in our Professional Pilot Program, you’ll need to meet a few pre-qualifications, including the following:
- Minimum of 18 years old
- High school graduate or GED recipient (college preferred)
- Two character references (One personal and one professional)
- Clean Motor Vehicle Record (MVR)
- Clear criminal background check
- Pass an assessment of behavior and cognitive processes

Upon completion of the program, Paragon Flight gives pilots preferential hiring consideration as Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs).

Documenting flight time faster here in Southwest Florida will speed up your acquisition of the 1,500 flight hours you’ll need to apply with an airline after earning your Airline Transport Pilot certification.
