The Importance of Dual FAR Authorizations
Having dual approvals, Paragon Flight is able to operate as both a Part 141 flight school and a Part 61 flight school. This unique status opens up our services to a wide range of student-pilots.
A Part 141 flight school has rigid structure regarding time and curriculum, and participation in this type of program is required by students from outside of the country, those with GI benefits, and students with access to federal financial aid.
Alternatively, Part 61 programs are essential to students who have obligations to existing careers, family matters, and community. These programs can be adjusted in pacing and content. With these accelerated programs, pilots must be prepared for intense study and training.
Tracking Your Training
Every novice student will begin working toward a private pilot certificate in the beginning. If you want to progress toward earning a living in the sky, training will not end there.
The next step will likely be earning an Instrument Flight Rating followed by a commercial pilot license. At Paragon Flight, you can choose to pursue this license as a single- or multi- engine pilot.
We also provide training for a multi-engine rating that you can tack on to an existing pilot license.
Most professional pilots decide to earn their certification for providing flight instruction, but this credential isn’t required to become an airline pilot.
The final step toward airline readiness is earning the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and documenting 1,500 hours in the sky.
