Send Dad Flying for Father’s Day Fort Myers Style

Was your Dad, Grandpa or husband born to be a pilot? Maybe he already has his pilot’s license, but rarely gets a chance to get up into the clouds. Or maybe he was always fascinated by the idea of learning to fly, but could never afford to take lessons. Whatever the dream, Paragon Flight can help you make it a reality with some exceptional gift ideas for the best ever Fathers Day Fort Myers style.

Here are a few suggestions that will give your Dad an unforgettable thrill:

  1. For as little as $125, you can send Dad on a Paragon discovery flight in a Cessna 172 Skyhawk, the world’s safest and most popular general aviation aircraft ever built. The discovery flight is a one hour “mini-lesson” that will give him a taste of flying. Dad will learn about the plane and the instruments, then handle the controls of the aircraft from taxi to takeoff, accompanied by one of our FAA-Approved Flight Instructors. The hour will count toward his pilot’s license if he likes flying and decides to continue his flight training.
  1. Give your Dad the world’s best view of his neighborhood with one of Paragon’s scenic flight tours. We can find and fly over his house, or you can bring along the family (the Cessna seats four plus the pilot), and do a little aerial sightseeing of Florida’s spectacular coastline and islands. This would also be an ideal gift if your Dad’s an amateur photographer and always wanted to take photos from the air. Scenic flight tours are very affordable, but will depend on where and how far you want to go. Please get in touch with us for prices.
  1. Paragon Flight can customize a package of individual pilot lessons just for your Dad. We offer a supportive, comfortable learning environment and can tailor the curriculum to suit your Dad’s needs. He can go for his Private Pilot certificate, or opt for the Sport Pilot certificate. It’s more restrictive, but less expensive and less time-consuming to obtain.
  1. If he’s just not sure about the idea of flying, you can arrange for your Dad to learn without leaving the ground. Give him a test flight on Paragon’s innovative Redbird FMX Simulator. It offers a fully enclosed cockpit, wrap-around visuals, and an electric motion platform. It simulates all the planes in our fleet and is outfitted with a terrain and airport database for the entire U.S. The Redbird FMX will make him feel like he’s flying a real plane even though he never got into the air. Again, the time Dad spends training in the simulator can be credited toward his pilot license, and the cost is about 50% lower than flight lessons.
  1. If you can’t decide what to get or funds are limited, consider one of Paragon’s gift certificates.  Dad can apply it toward the cost of any of the above options, or buy some gear from our shop.

Give your Dad or another special man in your life a gift of flight that he will never forget, and the freedom to go where he wants, when he wants. If he gets bitten by the aviation bug and wants to pursue further training, it is entirely possible for him to earn his private pilot license and be flying you around by Christmas.
