Airlines Hiring Pilots

As a generation of pilots retire and more travelers choose air travel, airlines are poised to hire pilots like never before. In response to the pressing demand for qualified professional pilots, Paragon Flight offers the P3 Professional Pilot Program.

The Professional Pilot Program at Paragon Flight

Airlines Hiring PilotsPreparing to work as a pilot is an arduous undertaking that can take more than two years following the traditional path. Paragon Flight’s P3 Program streamlines this timeframe, reducing the required time to fewer than ten months. With less time comes a cost reduction, allowing aspiring pilots to reach their goals when time and money might have otherwise made it impossible!

We build the P3 program around three features – professional development, money, and time.

Professional Development

The leadership and character that a pilot brings to the cockpit make a significant difference in the quality of the service provided. Paragon Flight focuses on the traits required for leadership, and we emphasize a baseline of professionalism throughout the P3 program and each phase of the course.

Financial Considerations

Paragon Flight wants to help aspiring pilots overcome their challenges, including financial ones. Beyond making the course more financially feasible, we help pilots secure the most appropriate financial resources. From experience, we’ve learned how to navigate the world of aviation financing, and we can support each of our pilot candidates in maximizing their potential resources.

P3 Scheduling

In 38 weeks, P3 participants progress through four training stages from zero experience to commercial pilot licensure with flight instructor certification.

0-10 Weeks, Private Pilot License (PPL)  – This foundational phase provides prospective pilots with effective good habits and best practices. Pilots with this license are permitted to operate single-engine aircraft in visual conditions.

11-18 Weeks, Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – a phase that trains pilots to fly in non-visual conditions while using communication and navigation systems in the aircraft.

19-30 Weeks, Commercial License, Single Engine and Multiple Engine (CSEL/CMEL) – training for pilots to operate single-engine and multi-engine aircraft at a mastery level, required to fly for compensation legally.

31-38 Weeks, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – This training offers commercial pilots an entry point into the aviation sector. Working as a flight instructor allows pilots to make a living while continuing to accrue the 1,500 flight hours needed to apply as airline pilots once they’ve earned their Airline Transport Pilot (ATP) certification.
