Paragon Flight is one of the few flight schools authorized to use Jeppesen training materials in our curriculum. Jeppesen, a Boeing subsidiary, creates the world’s finest pilot training manuals and software. This means we can provide you with the very best flight training programs. Statistics have shown that our students are very well-trained and earn their wings about 30% faster than the national average.


Paragon 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. It’s constructed from high-tech lightweight composite material to make it fuel efficient and cost-effective. Other single-engine training aircraft include the Cessna Stationair C206H (the bigger brother to the 126).


Flying in Florida is very popular and many pilots move here to enjoy the weather and scenery. This means we can draw from a large pool of highly-qualified and skilled pilots for our team of flight instructors. Paragon Flight’s staff consists of nationally accredited Certified Flight Instructors whose chief concerns are for your safety.
