Commercial Pilot Programs

Working as a pilot requires a commercial pilot license, and the sector has a wealth of roles – from airlines to cargo companies, private pilots, crop dusters, tourist planes, and more. Reaching the goal of securing a Commercial Pilot License opens up a world of occupational potential, but how do you get there?

Paragon Flight provides custom courses and accelerated programs like the P3 Professional Pilot Program, a full-time course focusing on quality training over quantity, professional development, and financial facilitation. Over 38 weeks, students earn a variety of credentials, including the following:

  • Private Pilot License (PPL) – 0-10 weeks
    • The foundational phase of flight training focused on the fundamental principles of aviation and aircraft systems.
  • Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) – 11-18 weeks
    • The phase focused on learning to fly in non-visual conditions using communication and navigation equipment.
  • Commercial Pilot License, Single-Engine and Multi-Engine (CSEL/CMEL) – 19-30 weeks
    • The phase focused on professional pilot preparation includes mastery-level flight training and process training.
  • Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) – 31-38 weeks
    • The phase provides training for an entry point into the profession, allowing for increased skill, flight hour accumulation, and compensation.

Prerequisites for P3 Participation:

  • 18 years old, minimum
  • High school graduate or GED recipient (college preferred)
  • Character references – one professional + one personal
  • Clean driving record, FAA record, criminal background check, and cognitive/behavioral evaluation

A key spoke of the P3 Program is our facilitation of financial hurdles. Pilot training can be expensive, but plenty of financial resources are available. Our team has a level of experience that allows us to help point you in the direction of appropriate avenues for financing, including a few personal lenders that prior students have found to be flight-training friendly.
