What You Can Do with a Private Pilot License

A private pilot certificate will enable you to fly for pleasure or business, day or night, with any number of passengers. While you cannot carry passengers or cargo for compensation, the FAA allows you to share operating expenses with your passengers, such as fuel, oil, airport expenditures, and rental fees.

You can fly anywhere in the U.S. and foreign countries (if you meet their regulations), provided you stay healthy and maintain the requirements to keep your certificate active.

Once you have your private pilot license, you’ll be able to take advantage of more advanced training to add ratings, including instrument, multi-engine and commercial ratings.

What to Expect from Your Training?

Flight lessons at Paragon Flight are taught in meticulously maintained training aircraft by instructors who have real-life experience as airline pilots. Our outstanding instructors, combined with an excellent computer-based curriculum, will help you earn your wings about 30% faster than the national average.

We offer a Part 141-approved curriculum for primary, instrument, and commercial training, or students may opt to follow a personalized FAR Part 61 training program.

We have teamed up with Jeppesen, creators of the best training systems and materials in the world to provide the pilot training you would expect from an award-winning flight school. Jeppesen’s professionally developed products, services and software are considered to be the best aviation training available anywhere. Jeppesen approves very few flight schools to offer its curricula, and Paragon is pleased to be one of them.
