The 10 new aircraft are the first of 50 the Florida flight school plans to acquire in a fleet modernization program. Paragon Flight Training says it has taken delivery of the first of its 10 Piper P100i aircraft in January. The award-winning flight school, located in Fort Myers, Florida, and based at Page Field (KFMY), is planning a five-year fleet modernization, starting with the 10 Pipers that have been delivered. The school also plans to purchase an additional 40 Piper aircraft over the next five years. The announcement was made Wednesday by Paragon Flight president and owner, Christopher Schoensee.
“It’s exciting to see our growth plans further unfold with the addition of this beautiful Piper aircraft, which we are confident in the training aircraft of the next generation,” Schoensee said in a statement. “It follows our groundbreaking in January for an expanded 9,000-square-foot learning centre on Page Field and brings us one aircraft closer to our goal of tripling our current fleet with the additional purchase of up to 50 Piper aircraft by the end of 2027.
