Consider a Discovery Flight or More
When your interest in flight is abstract, and you haven’t had any real experience with it, how can you be confident enough to invest in a complete program? Schedule a Discovery Flight.
A Discovery Flight is an inexpensive way to dip your toe into aviation education without any firm commitments. It’s also an excellent gift for a loved one. Participants enjoy the training of a qualified Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), a mini-lesson with an introduction to the aircraft, systems, and basics of aviation, and a turn in the pilot’s seat during a short flight. This hour will count toward your mandated flight hours should you decide to continue with training.
If you have firm plans to work as a pilot and want to participate in an accelerated program, consider the P3 Professional Pilot Program. This program allows pilots to complete training in 38 weeks and end with a Commercial Pilots License (CSEL & CMEL) for single-engine and multi-engine aircraft and certification as a flight instructor (CFI).
This program is ideal for pilot candidates who are ambitious and hard-working. For participation, students will need to present character references, secure a 1st Class Medical Certificate, pass a criminal background check, and meet other prerequisites since it is a course that requires dedication.
If you’re an old hand as an aviator and want to upgrade your skills, consider us your training source. Come in for an Instrument Flight Rating, Multi-Engine Rating or to become familiar with Glass Cockpit instruments. Licensed pilots can also rent aircraft from Paragon Flight. The fleet here includes 2022 and newer models of TAA (Technically Advanced Aircraft) qualified planes.
Overcome Financial Obstacles
It’s no secret that fight training can be expensive, but it’s also an investment in yourself. Paragon Flight has experience helping potential students navigate the maze of possible financial resources – student loans, grants, scholarships, etc. Leverage this expertise to your benefit.
