Airline Pilot Training Requirements
Meeting the training requirements to become an airline pilot becomes feasible when you choose Paragon Flight. From the beginning, we’ll consider your dream and create a personalized program that breaks each step into a manageable goal.
The Personalization of Paragon Flight Airline Pilot Programs
The differences among airline pilot programs at Paragon Flight are fairly substantial, even though they end with a common goal. We strive to custom design courses around their experience, schedule availability, goals, and lifestyle. The typical program lasts between 7 and 11 months and includes acquisition of a Private Pilot License (PPL), Instrument Flight Rating (IFR), Commercial License Single Engine (CSEL), and Commercial License Multi Engine (CMEL). Pilots may also choose to become Certified Flight Instructors (CFI/II/MEI).
Paragon Flight student-pilots participate in one-on-one instruction, as much as required, to become a safe and ready pilot. It all begins with a collaborative meeting that allows us to consider your needs and readiness to make sure that you qualify and then proceed to create the program for you that works with your individual characteristics.
At this time, we will present you with a written coursework outline, schedule, and cost estimate. If you sign up for training with Paragon Flight, we’ll schedule your on-board meeting with the student ambassador team, where you’ll meet the student ambassador who will be your personal flight training “concierge” during the entire experience.
