Financial Concerns of Flight Training

Far too many pilot candidates sacrifice their dreams because of money. Paragon Flight has a long history; we’ve operated for two decades. Allow our team to help you identify and secure the right financial resources for your training. Options range from aviation scholarships to student loans backed by the government, grants, GI funds, personal lending, etc. We can put you in touch with lenders who other students have used.

FAA Authorizations of Flight Schools

The FAA governs the operations of flight schools through Federal Aviation Regulations Parts 141 and 61. Part 141 schools have rigid syllabi and full-time courses, while Part 61 schools have one-on-one courses with flexible scheduling and pacing. Paragon Flight is fortunate to have both authorizations so we can provide students with the necessary training. We will curate a program that meets your circumstances and goals, whether a Part 141 course, a Part 61 course, or a combo package.
