Commercial Pilot Training North Dakota

Commercial pilot training in North Dakota can’t hold a handle to that provided by Paragon Flight in Fort Myers, FL. The experience and expertise that you’ll gain here make the trip well worth it.

Commercial Pilot Training North DakotaPage Field in Fort Myers, FL is home to Paragon Flight. We integrate quality and a dedication to perfection into every custom designed aviation course. Founded in 2006, we have developed a strong aircraft fleet, instructor staff, and curriculum, and over the years, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has honored us repeatedly for the instructors and flight training that we provide.

This area is the ideal location for flight training. Southwest Florida has clear, sunny skies over 350 days of the year, allowing our students to gain experience and log flight hours to reach their goals efficiently and sufficiently.

Commercial Pilot Training (Single-Engine and Multi-Engine)

Any flight service provided for payment must be helmed by a Pilot in Command (PIC) with a commercial pilot license. The exact role played by these pilots may vary. Whether you fly tourists to see sights, tow banners over the beach, fly for an airline, or teach other student-pilots, you can not accept a dime without a commercial pilot license.

You can choose to pursue a commercial license for a single- or multi-engine license, or even both, depending on your plans. An instrument flight rating, while not required for all commercial pilot jobs, will be required with some. Earning an instrument flight rating will permit you to fly without restrictions minimizing your earning potential.

Flight training is an unending process. Even after you qualify to become a certified Airline Transport Pilot, you’ll have to earn certifications for each new aircraft that you operate.

Time Requirements for Earning a Pilot Certificate:

  • 20 hours for a sport pilot license
  • 35-40 hours for a private pilot certificate
  • 120-250 for a commercial pilot certificate
  • 1,500 hours for an airline transport pilot certificate

Quality Training Aircraft at Paragon Flight

The aircraft that we use at Paragon Flight for training are all qualified as Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA), with Glass Cockpit technology and advanced Garmin avionics. For single-engine flight training, we house the Cessna C172S Skyhawk and the Piper PA28 “Pilot”; the Piper PA-44-180 Seminole for twin-engine flight training; the Cessna T182T Skylane for transitional flight training; the Cirrus SR20 and SR22 for advanced training, and the ALSIM AL172 Flight Simulator for affordable practice without having to pay for flight time.

Student-Pilots Required to Participate in a Part 141 Flight School

Paragon Flight is a FAR Part 141 and Part 61 program. FAR Part 141 courses must strictly follow the syllabus, and Part 61 courses permit flexibility in pacing and scheduling. Some students must participate in a Part 141 program including international students and veterans planning to use GI benefits.

International students must come with an M-1 Student Visa and be prepared to support themselves financially during training without any outside work because it won’t be allowed. We can provide the I-20 form to complete the paperwork required to apply for a student visa.
