Commercial Pilot Training in Georgia

Paragon Flight welcomes student-pilots who’re interested in commercial pilot training from Georgia and beyond. Operating out of Page Field in Fort Myers, FL, we offer proven methods and dedication to pilot success. The trip to Southwest Florida is worth the superior experience of flight training you’ll receive.

Commercial Pilot Training in GeorgiaAs the most obvious indicator of the quality of our efforts at Paragon Flight, consider the fact that the prestigious aviation advocate, AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association) has repeatedly recognized us as one of the premiere flight institutions in the country. Everyday, we work to be that level of flight training school.

We allow students’ needs to drive our efforts. Not only do we create a program around the student-pilot’s schedule and goals, but we also provide the best curriculum in the world for training, Jeppesen; superior Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs); and TAA (Technically Advanced Aircraft) aircraft considered the standard in the field.

The goal of the crew here at Paragon Flight is to create proficient pilots and encourage their love of the sky. We supply programs that fulfill the FAA requirements for private and commercial pilot licenses as well as multi-engine rating, instrument rating, and Certified Flight Instructor (I, II, MEI).

Important Information for Commercial Pilots

If you plan to earn money flying a plane, you must have a valid commercial pilot license. We provide students with a strong foundation, followed by supplemental endorsements as you choose. Just as with any other career, the higher up the ladder you climb, the more training will be required.

Specific Guidelines for FAR Part 61 Commercial Pilot Licensing

The program that you pursue here will provide all of the required components including:

  • 250 flight hours (100 – powered aircraft/50 – airplanes)
  • 100 flight hours as Pilot in Command (PIC) (50 – airplanes)
  • 50 cross country flight hours (10 – airplanes)
  • 20 hours of instruction (10 – instrument/10 – complex or TAA, combination of cross country and preparation for practical testing)
  • 10 hours solo flight (combination of cross-country and night flight)

For students pursuing the commercial pilot license as a Part 141 student-pilot, the hours required will be 190, 60 hours fewer than Part 61 guidelines.

Paragon Flight is approved under both FAR Parts, so we’re able to offer our students the full-time structure of a Part 141 course or the flexibility of a Part 61 option.

The fleet of aircraft here at Paragon Flight is ready to serve our students. Each is equipped with Glass Cockpit Technology and Advanced Avionics, so they qualify as Technically Advanced Aircraft. The fleet includes the Cessna C172S Skyhawk, the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole, the Cessna T182T Skylane, Cirrus SR20 G6, Cirrus SR22 G5/G6, and the ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator. Training in these icons of training keeps our students safe and provides them with experience using the technology that is standard for present and future aircraft.

Once you have a commercial pilot certificate, you’ll be able to begin your aviation career. The jobs available to pilots are incredibly varied, ranging from operating a touring aircraft to piloting an airliner.

The commercial pilot training available at Paragon Flight makes the short trip from Georgia absolutely worth it. Learn more by contacting us online or calling (239) 274-3170. We’d be happy to design a plan for your aviation education here at Paragon Flight.
