Commercial Pilot Training in Florida
Are you interested in a career as a professional pilot? It can be both exhilarating and rewarding, but you will need specialized training and your choice of flying schools is crucial. Let Paragon Flight’s commercial pilot school in Fort Myers, Florida, prepare you with the necessary knowledge and experience to reach your goal quickly and safely.
To fly for compensation (to get paid for it), you must have a commercial license. As long as you already hold your private pilot license, you can enroll in Paragon’s commercial pilot training program to complete all of the FAA requirements. Paragon Flight is certified to prepare you for your career as a commercial pilot.
Because Paragon Flight is an FAA Part 141-approved flight school, the piloting requirements are less stringent than for students who attend non-approved commercial pilot schools. Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) Part 61 (for non-FAA-approved programs), require a minimum of 250 logged hours of flying time. By choosing Paragon Flight’s FAA-approved program, your training requirements are reduced to 190 hours, and will include several hours of solo, cross-country and night flights.
Are you ready to get started? Call us today at (239) 274-3170 to schedule a private consultation with our Chief Flight Instructor. The instructor can help customize your commercial pilot training to suit your time constraints and budget. You’ll be on your way to your commercial pilot license in no time. Our location in sunny Southwest Florida also allows us to offer you great flying weather 350+ days of the year, so you should rarely encounter training delays resulting from inclement weather.
The first step is to complete a minimum of 35 hours of Paragon’s commercial pilot ground training courses and simulator training. In general, your aeronautical knowledge must include an understanding of the principles of aerodynamics, meteorology (so you will know how to recognize perilous weather conditions), how to safely operate aircraft, knowledge of the NTSB’s accident reporting rules, and various other critical areas related to aircraft functions and maneuvers.
Once you complete your Paragon Flight ground training, you will have to meet the logged flying time requirements associated with the type of aircraft you’ve chosen and the type of commercial work you seek, along with a check-ride with an FAA safety inspector. The requirements differ depending on whether you have selected a single-engine training course or a multi engine training course. However, if you intend to transport passengers or cargo commercially, you must also hold an instrument rating to permit you to fly without restrictions. Paragon Flight will help you complete your instrument rating add-on in a short time.
