A Taste of Success with Paragon Flight

Cessna Flight Training CenterKnown throughout the country as a worthy, award-winning flight school, Paragon Flight has been honored repeatedly by the AOPA, or Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, for outstanding experiences with our training as a whole and the quality of our instructors.

During the flight, you’ll have an opportunity to take control of the aircraft, and the session will count toward your logged flight hours.

Top-of-the-Line Cessna Aircraft

The standard for learning to fly a plane is in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk, which we use here at Paragon Flight. This single-engine aircraft handles predictably and safely, with lower landing speeds and a forgiving stall. The Garmin G1000 avionics qualify this aircraft as a Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) and allow student pilots to learn skills that will readily transfer to other aircraft in the future.

Our fleet includes additional aircraft for training. Primary training aircraft include the Piper PA28 “Pilot” and the PA-44 Seminole, and specialty training aircraft include the Cessna T182T Skylane, Cirrus SR20, Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and the ALSIM Flight Simulator.

A Diversity of Programs Available

Paragon Flight’s programs can be personalized to suit the needs of aspiring pilots in various situations. Whether you’re a busy career person with a latent dream and limited time or an international or college student on the cusp of a burgeoning career in aviation, we welcome your participation in a part-time or full-time program. 

Our newest offering is a fast-paced, accelerated program for commercial pilots to progress from zero experience to commercial pilot licensing as a single and multi-engine pilot with flight instructor certification in fewer than ten months. The P3 Professional Pilot Program is an excellent option for career-minded pilot hopefuls with full-time availability and a commitment to hard work.
