Commercial Pilot Training Schools In Washington
The commercial pilot training schools in Washington can’t hold a candle to the efficiency and effectiveness of the P3 Professional Pilot Program at Paragon Flight in Southwest Florida. The sunny skies of Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, homes to our two locations, offer more than 350 days each year of opportunity to accrue flight hours, and our commitment to success benefits each and every aspiring pilot we train.
The training that you receive here at Paragon Flight will set you up for success in all of your aviation pursuits. Come to Paragon Flight for the best:
- Certified Flight Instructors (CFIs) – diversely experienced with a best-fit promise;
- Curriculum (Jeppesen) – produces pilots 30% faster than the national average;
- Comprehensively equipped Technically Advanced Aircraft (TAA) fleet – includes appropriate aircraft for all programs and credentials for which we train;
- Location – exceptionally flight-friendly weather, proximity to practice fields and a tower-controlled runway, and near several metropolises for all budgets and preferences of accommodations;
- Programs – student-driven instruction to mastery of skills.
Paragon Flight, established in 2006, is an award-winning flight school, repeatedly recognized by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) for the excellence of the flight training we provide.
We’re dually authorized by the FAA under Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 61 and 141. The differences between the two sets of guidance systems lie in pacing and curriculum. Part 141 programs require full-time attendance and rigid adherence to a prescribed syllabus while Part 61 courses allow for greater flexibility and customization of courses to suit the needs of student-pilots with limited availability. We can meet the situations of all aspiring pilots.
P3 Professional Pilot Program
The P3 Program is meant to prepare pilots to work in a professional capacity, filling a need within the occupational sector, on a shorter time frame and with less expense. The program focuses on quality of training rather than quantity, assistance securing financing to pay for training, and the development of leadership and professional character.
Being an intensive, accelerated program, the prerequisites for participation are demanding and include all of the following:
- Age – 18 years old
- Education – High school diploma or GED, minimum (some college desired)
- References – one professional, one personal
- Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) – clean
- Criminal background check – clean
- Behavioral and cognitive evaluations – passed
- FAA record – no incidents, accidents, or enforcement actions
- FAA Medical Certificate – 1st Class
- Language – fluent and literate in English
- Availability – full-time (4-5 flight lessons and 10-20 hours of ground training each week)
- Characteristics – integrity, drive, work ethic
Going from zero experience to being a commercially licensed pilot with flight instructor credentials in fewer than 10 months will require great effort and dedication. Consider the program and its four phases:
Private Pilot License (PPL) – 0-10 Weeks
Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – 11-18 Weeks
Commercial License, Single Engine & Multi Engine (CSEL & CMEL) – 19-30 Weeks
Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – 31-38 Weeks
Being able to earn these credentials in an expedited fashion definitely saves time, and that time means financial savings as well.
