As you choose the perfect flight school for your aviation education, start by making sure that the aircraft fleet is appropriate for your plans. We house aircraft to supply training equipment for every program that we offer. They are also all considered Technically Advanced with advanced avionics and Glass Cockpit technology.
The fleet itself includes the Cessna C172S Skyhawk, the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, the Cessna T182T Skylane, the Cirrus SR20 G6, the Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and the ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator.
Our inspections and quality checks are parallel to FAA expectations, and you can be assured of safe equipment in tip-top condition when you fly our aircraft.
Once you verify the quality of the aircraft, consider the flight school’s reputation. Paragon Flight is well-known and respected. The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has repeatedly recognized us for the quality of our flight school.
The Jeppesen curriculum is the most efficient one available. Created by the Boeing corporation, Jeppesen is a comprehensive program proven to produce qualified pilots in 30% less time than the national average.
We’re also able to provide flight training under both Federal Aviation Regulations Parts 61 and 141. We can use a blended approach to meet the needs of student-pilots, or we can provide a structured, rigid, full-time approach or a flexible, student-led pacing, and custom curriculum. The student is our focus.
With a Part 141 designation, we are able to welcome international students with the appropriate documentation, vets using GI funds, and full-time students with financial aid packages.
We also understand that ready cash isn’t always available, so we’re happy to provide contacts to some of the lenders that our student-pilots most regularly use.
