Why Paragon Flight?

Delta Airlines Pilot SalariesAll flight schools are not equal. You may find a flight school closer to your home than Paragon Flight, but you won’t find one that’s better. We offer three locations:

  • Page Field Airport (FMY) in Fort Myers, FL
  • Punta Gorda Airport in (PGD) in Punta Gorda, FL
  • LaGrange-Callaway Airport (LGC) in LaGrange, GA.

Each of these facilities offers everything needed for a spectacularly successful and fun flight training experience. The weather participates with flight-friendly conditions over 300 days annually—more in the Florida locations. You’ll also find tower-controlled runways, modern facilities, advanced aircraft, experienced instructors, and world-class curricula. 

We’ve been honored many times by the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), and as the foremost aviation advocacy group, we know that recognition matters. We work diligently to deserve the honor of every student’s experience.

Why P3?

P3, also known as the Professional Pilot Program, is meant for committed, ambitious, and hard-working participants like you.

Specifically, the requirements to participate in the P3 Program include all of the following:

  • 18 years old, minimum
  • High school diploma or GED (some college preferred)
  • Character references – one professional and one personal
  • MVR (Motor Vehicle), FAA, and criminal background records – all clear
  • Pass a behavioral and cognitive evaluation
  • 1st class FAA Medical Certificate
  • Able to speak, read, and write in English
  • Available to participate in 4-5 flight lessons and 10-20 hours of ground training each week – FULL-TIME
  • Positive work ethic, integrity, and drive.

Does this sound like you? We break the P3 Program into four stages, each culminating in specific credentials earned, all progressing toward your ultimate goal. 

Phase One: Private Pilot License (PPL) – weeks 0-10

This phase is integral to the P3 Program. It lays the foundation for all aviation education and establishes good habits early. If you have an existing private license, you’ll skip this first ten weeks and jump right into the second phase.

Phase Two: Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – weeks 11-18

The second phase trains pilots to fly in Instrument Flight Rules – when conditions require communication and navigation equipment. We’ll train you to use these tools well and fly safely, skills that you’ll use routinely as a commercial pilot.

Phase Three: Commercial License, Single-Engine and Multi-Engine (CSEL/CMEL) – weeks 19-30

Commercial licenses are required before pilots can accept payment for flight services. The third phase of the P3 Program teaches pilots how to fly at a mastery level—the sort you’ll need to haul cargo or passengers. 

Phase Four: Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – week 31-38

Finally, we’ll train you to teach others. Working as a flight instructor is an excellent option if you plan to work as an airline pilot. You’ll need 1,500 flight hours before applying, and as a flight instructor, you can count the hours you work while making a living!
