The Benefits of Scheduling a Discovery Flight
Learning about a flight school online never fully substitutes for an in-person tour. Paragon Flight offers a Discovery Flight where you can experience what flight school will truly be like. We’ll take you on a tour and provide an initial flight lesson. Then, you’ll enjoy a flight where you’ll be able to take control of the aircraft for a short period of time.
This Discovery Flight also gives you plenty of opportunity to ask questions about the program, tour the facility, and evaluate the instructors and equipment. Pilots who would like a place to recertify or continue on with an add-on endorsement should feel comfortable scheduling a consultation visit as well. We’re always willing to welcome new prospective students for a visit.
Location Matters When Choosing a Flight School
The flight school you choose should have a convenient location with opportunities for practice and a towered airport. Paragon Flight, operating out of Page Field in Fort Myers, FL, provides a tower-controlled airport, is near several practice airfields, and is 6,406 feet long. The weather here facilitates flight practice as well with 350 days on average of great flying conditions.
Further, this location in Southwest Florida is ideal for all budgets. You’ll find close accommodations at all ends of the spectrum of expense.
