Florida and Flight Training

Florida is as perfect for flight training as peanut butter is to jelly.

The weather is perhaps the most obvious advantage Florida provides. Over 350 days of the year provide the sunny, clear skies that pilots adore. Not only does this ideal climate facilitate regular training, but it also elevates the applicant pool from which we hire flight instructors. 

Since pilots flock to Florida and many of them work as flight instructors, we’re able to promise our student pilots a flight instructor with a complementary teaching style and personality.

Paragon Flight’s specific location at Page Field (FMY) in Fort Myers provides student pilots with a wealth of benefits. The airport is the mecca of flight travel in the region, with modern facilities and a tower-controlled runway. Nearby, you’ll find practice airfields and plenty of choices in terms of accommodations.

A benefit that you might not consider is the beautiful views from the sky when you fly over the coastline and attractions of Southwest Florida. With the sights seen, every day of training can be another magical experience.

Financing Options

Training to become a pilot requires financing for most student pilots. Allow the team here to help as you work through the various options and secure the best for you, whether you qualify for grants, student loans, scholarships, veteran benefits, or personal loans.
