Pilot Training in USA For German Students
German students who are seeking pilot training in the USA will find a flight training program to meet their needs at Paragon Flight in Fort Myers, Florida.
Paragon Flight is an FAA-approved FAR Part 141 Flight Training Center. Founded in 2006, we are known as the premier flight school in Southwest Florida because we provide excellent instructors, the most advanced aircraft available and the best training systems in the world.
We are proud to have won awards from the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) as one of the top flight schools in the nation and have been selected over multiple years for their Flight Training Excellence Awards.
We offer state-of-the art training facilities, meticulously maintained aircraft, a training staff comprised of nationally accredited instructors (CFI, CFII) who have real-life experience as airline pilots, and the world’s finest Jeppeson pilot training curriculum.
Our sunny climate in Fort Myers enables you to fly more often and complete your flight training quickly. We have ideal flying weather for 350+ days each year with average daily temperatures of 84 degrees.
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. Other single-engine training aircraft include the Cessna Stationair 206 (the bigger brother to the 126).
M-1 Visa Requirements
German students must apply for an M-1 visa and register with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) before starting flight training in the U.S.
A certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status, better known as Form I-20, is a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document issued by Paragon Flight that provides supporting information to the U.S. government for the issuance of your M-1 visa.
Form I-20 is critical to your visa application process and must be completed properly to assure the U.S. government that you intend to be a serious, hard-working, full-time student while you undergo flight training.
In order for Paragon Flight to begin the I-20 issuing process, we encourage you to follow our step-by-step instructions and complete and submit the required online forms.
