Paragon Flight – Superiority Where It Counts
Paragon Flight serves its student-pilots with dedication and best practices honed over years of experience. This level of training has earned us accolades in several areas. Recognition by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is not easily earned, but we have done so year after year.
Paragon Flight operates under the authority of the FAA under Parts 61 and 141. This dual authority allows us to provide the strict adherence to curriculum and full-time scheduling some students need, and the GI bill requires, of the Part 141 guidance as well as the flexible pacing and content enabled by Part 61 authority. When pilots lack freedom from obligations and responsibilities that enable full-time study, we can accommodate those needs with an accelerated program of study.
Located in Southwest Florida, in beautiful Fort Myers at Page Field, Paragon Flight is near many cities with a variety of accommodations, practice airfields, and attractions. The weather here is conducive to time spent in the air with ready-for-takeoff conditions more than 300 days each year.
