The Time Is Right for Commercial Pilot Training

Commercial Pilot School Jacksonville, FloridaRight now is the perfect time to become a pilot. If you’ve been delaying your pilot goals because they seem too difficult to reach and the rewards too few, reconsider. Entry-level salaries have risen to $80k, while senior captains may make $280k+.

With the P3 Professional Pilot Program here at Paragon Flight, your training will take less time and money. 

Timeline of the P3 Program

0-10 Weeks – Private Pilot (PPL)

With no existing training, student pilots begin by pursuing a Private Pilot License (PPL). This foundational phase of the program is essential, helping pilots start their training with good habits and skills.

11-18 Weeks – Instrument Rating (IFR)

Once you have a private pilot license, you’ll pursue an instrument rating. This training will allow you to use an aircraft’s navigation and communication equipment. With an instrument rating, you’ll also be able to fly in conditions you otherwise wouldn’t be able to, so the program requires thorough instruction and training in weather conditions and instrument flight.

19-30 Weeks – Commercial License, Single Engine and Multi-Engine (CSEL and CMEL)

Training and logging hours for your commercial license will come next. This phase will focus on meeting the high standards of professional aviation. Our program accelerates the pace of your education, but it doesn’t skimp on quality. You’ll be well prepared for the measurement that tests your aeronautical knowledge, flight skills, and safety. Once you have this license, you’ll be able to accept payment for your skills as a single-engine or twin-engine pilot.

31-38 Weeks – Certified Flight Instructor (CFI)

The last phase of the program will qualify you as a flight instructor. This role will provide you with income as you accrue flight hours. Even after earning your Airline Transport Pilot certification (ATP), you’ll need 1,500 hours of flight time under your belt to apply at an airline. This seven-week phase is much more reasonable than the six months it usually takes to become a licensed flight instructor.
