About Page Field
Built in 1927 as a civil airport, Page Field was taken over by the War Department at the beginning of World War II. Renamed Fort Myers Army Air Field and later, Page Field Army Airfield, it was used by the U.S. Army Air Forces Third Air Force for antisubmarine patrols and conventional bomber training.
Page Field returned to civil control of the State of Florida and then Lee County shortly after the end of the war. The facility was served by the major airlines until 1983 when the new Southwest Florida Regional Airport, now called Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW), was completed.
Today, Page Field serves general aviation and business traffic and is a designated FAA reliever airport for RSW.

Paragon Flight provides professional flying lessons whether you are interested in flying for a major airline, for your business, or just for fun.

Paragon Flight students train in the world’s greatest aircraft – Cessna’s forgiving and reliable single-engine Skyhawk 172. The Cessna 172 makes learning to fly easier primarily because it has lower takeoff and landing speeds and is very forgiving. It’s constructed from high-tech lightweight composite material to make it fuel efficient and cost-effective. Other single-engine training aircraft include the Cessna Stationair 206 (the bigger brother to the 126).
We have partnered with Jeppesen, a subsidiary of Boeing and a giant in the flight training industry, to help you earn your wings 30% faster than other flight schools. Jeppesen created the world’s finest pilot training manuals and software, and we are among the select schools authorized to use their materials.
