Airline Pilot Training USA
Ambitious pilots who want to climb the ladder of aviation all the way to the top pursue airline pilot training, and in the USA, Paragon Flight is the ideal source.
The FAA regulates the activities of flight schools through FAR Parts 61 and 141. While many flight schools are authorized under one Part or the other, Paragon Flight has authorization under both so that we are able to welcome students with short terms of time for study as well as full-time students.
Part 61 regulations are flexible, allowing students to earn their credentials at their own pace while Part 141 regs let us welcome veterans with GI benefits and international pilots on student visas.
Perfectly Positioned for Piloting Practice
Paragon Flight calls Page Field (FMY) in Fort Myers home. Page Field is the hub of business and general flight in Southwest Florida.

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, AOPA, is the nation’s leading aviation advocacy group, and we’re proud to have been honored by them several times in the past years for our commitment to excellence. Every single day, we work to keep earning this recognition.
