A facility specially certified for Cessna pilot training, Paragon Flight Training lifts earthbound students into the skies with a hands-on introductory flying experience. Lessons commence with a brief overview and ground training, as students learn the ins and outs of the Cessna, a white-winged craft with a thin, nectar-seeking beak. The fuel-injected sky sleds are equipped with Garmin G1000 avionics, an all-glass flight deck that displays flight instrumentation, locations, navigation, and M*A*S*H reruns across large-format, high-resolution displays. Ground-bound individuals then rise above the horizon line for approximately 30 minutes of in-the-air training as certified instructors grant a bird’s-eye view of the land below.
