Best Flight School Florida
Although it’s not difficult, learning to fly requires a firm commitment. If you dream of becoming a licensed private pilot or have plans for a future career in aviation, it’s important to get your training at the best flight school in Florida, in a structured training course that has been approved by the FAA.
Paragon Flight is a premier FAA Part 141-approved Flight Training Center, which means we are required to meet more stringent FAA accountability standards and student performance rates than Part 61 flight schools. But, because our staff includes some of the most experienced instructors and we offer the renowned computer-based Jeppesen curriculum, we can help you earn your certificate about 30% faster than the national average.
We have teamed up with Jeppesen, a subsidiary of Boeing and the creators of the most-respected pilot training systems and materials in the world.
We are proud to be one of only a few, select schools in the U.S. that have been authorized to include these award-winning systems and materials in our curriculum. Whether you choose sport pilot, private pilot or commercial pilot training, Jeppesen’s syllabus is divided into three stages, with a stage check and stage exam at the end of each stage plus a final exam and flight check once you’ve completed the course.
Paragon has a track record for excellence and we are proud to have been ranked by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) as one of the top 50 flight schools in the U.S. You will train in some of the newest and most reliable aircraft. All are designated Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA), which means they feature the very best equipment available. Choose from single-engine planes such as the Cessna 172 Skyhawk and its bigger brother, the Cessna Stationair 206. If you are going for your multi-engine rating, we provide the robust and lightweight Tecnam P2006T, an industry leader in efficiency and performance.
In addition, our location in Fort Myers, Florida enables us to offer students some of the most spectacular flying weather in the nation. Our sunny climate allows you to enjoy over 350 days per year of aviation-perfect weather, and our location provides easy access to hundreds of airports and practice areas. Learning to fly can’t get much better than this.
Earning your private pilot certificate can open up a world of opportunities, from sightseeing and vacationing with family and friends, to aerobatics, to becoming a commercial airline pilot or a certified flight instructor. Take advantage of our more advanced training programs to add instrument, multi-engine or commercial ratings.
