Commercial Pilot Rating
Being a terrific location for flight opportunities, Florida is rich with flight training schools where a student can earn a commercial pilot license as well as a multi-engine or instrument rating, but Paragon Flight is hands down the best!
The goal of Paragon Flight is to prepare pilot candidates in a fun and modern environment. We have the aircraft, curriculum, and flight instructors for a thorough program of flight training, and we have the FAA authorization under FAR Parts 141 and 61 to create custom flight training programs.
As you consider the various flight schools in the area, finances may be one element of your decision process. Potential students of Paragon Flight will find that we can put you in touch with flight school friendly lenders, and we are authorized to accept financial aid and veterans benefits. Refrain from allowing this concern to take precedence; the last thing you want is a flight school that cuts corners.
Well-Qualified Flight Instructors
The Certified Flight Instructors (CFI/II) on staff here are the best of the best. Southwest Florida is a haven for pilots, so we’re able to choose from a larger than normal applicant pool, and our students reap the benefits with Certified Flight Instructors who are broadly experienced in a variety of geographical regions, conditions, and aircraft.
Top-Quality Curriculum and Customizable Programs
As a duly authorized flight school, Paragon Flight is able to operate under both FAR Parts 141 and 61 regulations. The two sets of regulations are different in the flexibility of the pacing, curriculum, and scheduling. Part 141 is required to strictly follow established curriculum, and Part 61 has room for adjustments. We’re happy to create a personalized program to help you reach your goals less expensively, faster, and sacrifice-free.
The curriculum that we employ is created by Boeing. Jeppesen training materials produce stellar pilots in less than 30% of the time of the national average.
Here, we offer a range of programs including the following:
- Private Pilot License (PPL)
- Instrument Rating (IFR)
- Commercial Single-Engine License (CSEL)
- Commercial Multi-Engine License (CMEL)
- Certified Flight Instructor (CFI/CFII)
Safe, Dependable, and Predictable Training Aircraft
The training fleet that we house at Paragon Flight is on an equal footing with the aircraft you’ll fly as a commercial pilot. Each is prepared with advanced avionics and Glass Cockpit Technology to qualify as Technically Advanced Aircraft. Specific models within the fleet include the following:
- Cessna C172S Skyhawk
- Piper PA-44-180 Seminole
- Cessna T182T Skylane
- Cirrus SR20 G6
- Cirrus SR22 G5/G6
- AlSIM AL172 Flight Simulator
Prime Location for Time in the Sky

We’re also near several practice fields and accommodations to suit every range of budget and preference.
