Cost for Flight School

Is the cost of flight school keeping you from pursuing your aviation dreams? Paragon Flight offers various programs to save you time and money. Accelerated courses, flexible scheduling, nearby accommodations for all budgets, on-site simulator practice, and different financing options are just a few ways we work to make flight training accessible for all.

Introducing Paragon Flight

Cost for Flight SchoolParagon Flight is a cut above. We’re dually authorized under FAA Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Parts 141 and 61. Our approval to operate according to these regulations allows us to provide student pilots with greater training options. Accelerated programs like the P3 Professional Pilot Program take less time and less money in many cases.

Our locations are ideal for flight training. We have two locations in Southwest Florida – one in Fort Myers and the other in Punta Gorda. These locations have sunny skies 350+ days of the year, near several metropolitan areas, and practice airfields. The third location is in LaGrange, GA, smack dab amid Birmingham, Montgomery, Columbus, and Atlanta. This location offers 300+ days of clear skies and airspace that’s not congested. Without impediments to flight time, our students can finish training expeditiously, yet another factor that will save money that would otherwise be spent on room and board during training.

Each of our locations’ homes is in modern airport facilities with tower-controlled runways: Page Field Airport (FMY) in Fort Myers, FL, Punta Gorda Airport (PGD) in Punta Gorda, FL, and LaGrange-Callaway Airport (LGC) in LaGrange, GA.
