Commercial Pilot School Fort Myers, Fl
No matter the particular niche in the aviation industry you’d like to fill, you will need to become a commercial pilot in order to legally accept payment for flight services, and Paragon Flight school offers an excellent method of preparation, operating out of Page Field (FMY) in Fort Myers, FL.
The student-centered approach that we take to flight instruction means that we will chart a course specifically for you based upon experience level, ambitions, and available time.
If you’re striving to enter the aviation field commercially, Paragon Flight can assist you with either Commercial Single-Engine Certification or Commercial Multi-Engine Certification in addition to other programs.
All flight schools are authorized by the FAA under Federal Aviation Regulations Parts 141 or 61. Part 141 is a highly structured, by-the-syllabus, full-time classroom-based program of flight instruction while Part 61 courses are 1:1 self-paced programs. Paragon Flight is proud to be authorized under both regulations, so we welcome students who prefer structure as well as those with family, work, and social obligations that limit their available time for training.
