Pilot Training Programs
Paragon Flight offers many pilot training programs to help you reach your maximum potential as a pilot. Here is a short list of the most common training programs that can be completed.
Private Pilot (PPL) – The private pilot license is the first license aspiring recreational and career-minded pilots typically obtain. Each stage of training integrates ground and flight lessons.
Instrument Pilot Rating (IFR) – The instrument rating is typically the next step after you complete your private pilot certificate. The entire training course focuses on learning to safely fly using aircraft avionics, radios, communication and navigation equipment.
Airline & Commercial Pilot (CSEL / CMEL) – Airline commercial pilot programs can vary in length from 120-250 flight hours depending on the student’s flight experience, goals and individual circumstances. We offer two routes to obtain your commercial license, single engine (CSEL) and multi engine (CMEL). Some clients elect to obtain both, but the route you decide to take is your personal preference.
Certified Flight Instructor (CFI, CFII, MEI) – If you want to be immediately hired after you receive your Commercial rating, consider becoming a Certified Flight Instructor or a Multi Engine Instructor. Being a CFI is one of the most rewarding jobs you can do in the aviation industry, and it enables you to build flight hours while teaching others how to fly.
