Dual FAA Authorizations

Best Flight SchoolsFAA-authorized under Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 61 and Part 141, Paragon Flight is uniquely able to meet the needs of all pilot candidates. We provide the individualized, flexible training that student pilots with limited schedules and differentiated learning styles need and the full-time, stringently scheduled training required of traditional students through Part 141 programs.

Whether you’re an established career person with occupational or family obligations, a traditional student with government-backed student loans, grants, and scholarships, a veteran using GI benefits, or an international student on an M-1 Student Visa, Paragon Flight provides appropriate courses.

Paragon Flight has three locations of flight school excellence. Our flight schools call all the following airports home:

  • Page Field (FMY) in Fort Myers, FL
  • Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) in Punta Gorda, FL
  • LaGrange-Callaway Airport (LCG) in LaGrange, GA.

All three locations offer modern facilities, runways, practice fields, and cooperative weather. Our student pilots face few challenges to practical experience related to environmental challenges or aircraft congestion.

When you determine that you’d like to take advantage of the incredible training programs that we offer, schedule a consultation with the Head Flight Instructor to come up with a comprehensive plan that will take you from where you are to where you’d like to be as quickly, affordably, and suitably as possible.
