Financial Aid for Flight School
Financial aid for flight school is available! However, locating and securing the financial resources you need can be complicated and overwhelming. The team at Paragon Flight is dedicated to helping pilot candidates pay for their training as one of the key priorities of our newly developed P3 Professional Pilot Program.
Ultimately, the essential element to consider when planning to become a pilot is to learn at a respected institution with the capacity to provide the training promised. Paragon Flight’s home, Page Field in Fort Myers, FL, offers outstanding facilities, flight-friendly weather around the calendar, a world-class curriculum, and diversely experienced and expert-level flight instructors.
In addition to 350+ days of clear skies for takeoff and landing each year, Paragon Flight can provide students with access to a tower-controlled runway, several practice fields, and a wide range of accommodations for every budget. We have a long history of producing capable pilots; you should be the next class to experience that instruction. Learn here; learn well.
The newest program within our custom catalog is meant to leverage all of the above-stated benefits in a way that produces ready commercial pilots in fewer than ten months: the P3 Professional Pilot Program. The first ten weeks will culminate with the Private Pilot License (PPL); the next eight weeks will focus on training for the Instrument Rating (IFR); the following twelve weeks will end with a Commercial Pilot License (CSEL and CMEL), allowing you to fly both single- and multi-engine aircraft. Finally, the last eight weeks will teach these pilots how to share their knowledge with others as Certified Flight Instructors (CFI). These 38 weeks could not be better spent.
The most pressing question may be how to pay for this program. As we’ve developed the P3 Professional Pilot Program, we’ve recognized three areas that lead to positive outcomes:
- The quality of flight instruction rather than the quantity of training
- Help for student-pilots to find and secure financing via student loans, scholarships, grants, or personal loans
- Professional development, specifically leadership and integrity.
To succeed in the P3 Program at Paragon Flight, you should go into it with your eyes wide open. This course is not for individuals who lack full-time availability or drive. Consider the following list of prerequisites:
- 18 years old, minimum
- High school graduate or GED recipient, with some college preferred
- One professional character reference
- One personal character reference
- Clean driving record
- Clean criminal background check
- Clean FAA record
- Pass an assessment of behavioral and cognitive abilities
- FAA 1st Class Medical Certificate
- Able to read, write, understand, and speak the English language
- Full-time availability to participate in 4-5 flight training sessions and 10-20 hours of ground training each week
- Integrity, ambition, drive, and dedication to hard work
The financial options available to you for your aviation training might surprise you. Scholarships, grants, student loans, personal loans, and other financing opportunities abound. Our team has the expertise and experience to help you work through the application processes to secure the financing you need.
