Pilot Training for International Students

If you are interested in pilot training for international students, look no further than Paragon Flight in beautiful Fort Myers, Florida! We offer excellent instructors, the most advanced aircraft available, and the best training systems in the world.

Pilot Training for International StudentsParagon Flight is an FAA-approved Flight Training Center under Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 141. Our FAA-certification means that you will undergo higher-quality training and achieve certification in less time than you will in non-approved flight schools.

Whether you are from the United Kingdom, Germany, India, Canada or elsewhere in the world, we are committed to helping you achieve your goals and provide a more well-rounded training experience than you’ll find elsewhere.

A student visa (M-1) is required for anyone who is not a U.S. citizen to do flight training for a certificate or rating in the United States. The B-1/B-2 tourist/business visa is NOT sufficient for flight training in the U.S.

Before you can get an M-1 visa, Paragon Flight must issue a certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, better known as Form I-20, that provides supporting information to the U.S. government for the issuance of your visa. We encourage you to follow our step-by-step instructions and complete and submit the required online forms.

We offer single-engine planes such as the Cessna 172 Skyhawk and its bigger brother, the Cessna Stationair C206H. For pilots seeking their multi-engine rating, we offer the Piper PA-44 Seminole, which has set the benchmark for reliability and safety for all multi-engine training aircraft.
