Best Florida Flight School
Florida is a premier region for learning to fly, so the best flight school in Florida will also be one of the best flight schools in the world. Paragon Flight is proud to be one of those schools. We stand apart from the competition as a dedicated, versatile, and accommodating source for aviation education.
The Appeal of Florida for Flight School
Florida, known as the Sunshine State, could also be known as an aviation paradise. Sunny, clear skies over 350 days of the year mark the climate in Southwest Florida, where we have two of our three locations. Our students face no obstacles to takeoff and landing due to weather-related conditions.
Furthermore, the view from the cockpit is spectacular in this area. Beautiful coastlines, man-made attractions, the Everglades, and nearby island regions provide much to see from the sky. We make flight training a joyful, fun, and prosperous experience.
Paragon Flight’s two Florida locations are at Page Field in Fort Myers and the Punta Gorda Airport in Punta Gorda. These flight schools enjoy modern facilities, suitable runways for practicing takeoff and landing, and nearby practice airfields. The proximity to several cities also allows our students to find the best accommodations for their budgets and preferences and plenty of attractions to appeal to any companions who choose to accompany our students.
The Appeal of Paragon Flight for Flight School
Paragon Flight has even more than its premiere location to offer our students. We also provide every element needed for flight school – maximized for the greatest impact.
We function as a dual-authorized flight school under FAR Parts 141 and 61 guidelines. Part 141 programs are highly structured, full-time courses that cater to traditional students with student loans, scholarships, and grants; veterans with GI benefits; and international students on an M-1 Student Visa, and Part 61 programs offer the one-on-one training and schedule flexibility needed by non-traditional students with established careers and family obligations.
When we hire flight instructors, we can do so from a group of highly trained and experienced professionals. Being a favorite place for pilots, we can recruit the absolute best of the best for our students’ benefit. Students here also have a best-fit promise, and we’ll provide a new instructor when students find that the pairing doesn’t work for whatever reason.
The aircraft fleet at Paragon Flight is also fully appropriate for flight training. Every piece of equipment we house is equipped with Glass Cockpit technology and advanced avionics for skill acquisition that is readily transferable to the cockpits of today’s aircraft. Specifically, we offer the following models:
- Piper PA28 “Pilot” – single-engine flight training
- PA-44 Seminole – multi-engine flight training
- Cirrus SR20 – primary instruction, high-performance endorsements, transition and differences training, and aircraft rentals
- ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator – cost-saving simulation on the ground with exact replicas of training cockpits
The Jeppesen curriculum, developed by the Boeing subsidiary, is available to select institutions chosen for the quality of the institution. We’re proud to be one of the few to use this system.
