When you pursue aviation training here at Paragon Flight, you’ll save time and money, but you won’t sacrifice some of the quality needed for a successful training experience. We tailor our students’ training programs to their goals, learning styles, availability, and other relevant factors.
Flight schools receive authority from the FAA through Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 61 and 141. Part 61 regulations permit us to provide one-on-one, bespoke flight training courses for individual students, and Part 141 regulations prescribe a well-defined syllabus with full-time scheduling. International students, traditional students, and those with GI benefits must participate in a Part 141 flight training program.
Make a Cockpit Your Office
If you want to operate out of a cockpit instead of an office, we promise the view will be better.
To make that happen, you’ll need quality training to clear the FAA check rides, earn the required credentials, and log the requisite flight hours.
